The running tradition is well-known in Barcelona as this activity ranks top on a national level for all the participants. Even at an international level, Barcelona's reputation as one of the sportiest cities is well-known, valuing aspects such as the celebration of important sporting events including athletic races which are available for those who love practicing all kinds of sports.
One of the most emblematic running events in Barcelona, the Zurich Marató, is about to celebrate a new edition. At 08:30 in the morning on Sunday, March 12th, more than 20,000 participants will begin to race through the 42 kilometre tracks and 195 metres that make up the test, with the aim of reaching the finishing line.
Just like in previous years, the 39th edition of Zurich Mataró will have its finishing line in Reina María Cristina Avenue. The participants will have the opportunity to take a splendid tour around the city and enjoy some of the most emblematic places along the way.
In this edition, Zurich Mataró will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona. For this test, the event will be attended by the six Olympic male and female marathon medalists who took part in the games at that time.
