The Zurich Marató Barcelona is much more than a sporting event. Barcelona has the marathon it deserves, a mass event with participants who flock here from all over the world in search of an amazing personal experience in one of the most beautiful cities on Earth.
The Zurich Marató Barcelona blends sport, leisure and citizen celebrations. The capital has thrown its weight behind the event year after year and never fails to show its support for the runners on the day of the race.
After a year spent making changes and revamping the event from the bottom up, the Zurich Marató Barcelona is reborn stronger than ever to give participants a magical experience in which the urban landscape of Barcelona takes centre stage. What makes the Marató special is its host city, with its open, inclusive and cosmopolitan spirit, its Mediterranean flavour, a Modernist past that has left its mark in its exceptional architecture, which can be recognised at first sight around the globe, and its world-famous cuisine.
The main goal of the event is to make participants the stars of the race. This unique journey starts when you sign up for the race and ends when you cross the finish line of the Zurich Marató Barcelona on Avinguda Maria Cristina. From the youngest participant to the oldest, from the local woman to the man who comes from the other side of the world, from the steadfast wheelchair athlete to the worthy champion. Together with hundreds of volunteers, performers, medical professionals, physiotherapists and citizens, every single one of you helps make the Zurich Marató Barcelona a magical experience in the best company there is: Barcelona.
This year, if you run, you've already won!
