Absolutely definitely 😊
It's almost like a mini London

I'd do it again if there weren't so many other races that I want to do

Mr K.. Barca & Valencia are my two favourites. Barca is so much less hassle/stressful than the VLM as Start/Finish/Expo are all in one place. I always book a hotel close by for race day convenience, never even had to bother with a kitbag on the day. It's just under half the size of London so it still has that big city feel without the same congestion.
The start must be one of the best in the marathon world. The fountains, the atmosphere, the view through the start line and the two towers up into the hills is simply breathtaking. I've done it 4 times now and wouldn't rule out doing it again.

Totally agree with wardi and Trin. The 1st non-UK marathon I've done and I really couldn't fault it. Great atmosphere but not over crowded and Barcelona is a wonderful city to visit.

Got something to say?
