Barcelona Marathon 2011 !! 6th March, 2011
Barcelona's first marathon took place in 1980 and followed marathons celebrated in Palafrugell in 1978 and 1979. Today, the Barcelona marathon enjoys international prestige which its organizers do not hesitate to maximise. 10,000 participants are expected this year and we'll see if this year's winner will be the same as last year's, Kenyan Jackson Cotut in a time of 2:07:30.
The Barcelona marathon is fun for its competitors including amateurs, professionals or beginners, as well as its spectators who stand to watch from emblematic Barcelona's buildings and monuments offering the possibility to see Barcelona from a different perspective.
