Top races to participate in Barcelona this autumn

There is no doubt that 'running' is the sport of today. In fact, if you are a lover of healthy living, you probably enjoy a good run every time you go out. You must, therefore, know that this autumn, Barcelona will be hosting a number of races that you may be interested in participating.

1. Farinato Race

If, besides running, you love to climb, fight, overcome obstacles or anything else that will pass your imagination, Farinato Race de Castelldefels is your best option. In addition, depending on your physical condition, you can choose to run for either 5 or 13 kilometres.

2. VII Carrera Solidaria Nick Horta

This race consists of only 5 kilometres and Horta becomes full, but its purpose could not be better. The race was created by Eva, the founder of the Association of Dent's disease who has a child with this health problem. All the profits go directly towards combatting this condition.

3. The Color Run

This race is also 5 kilometres, but what matters less in the Color Run is time. From four different points, the runners will be bathed in a shower of powder colours until they reach the finishing line. The winner will receive a final flurry of confetti. After the race, a 4-hour party is followed with concerts.

4. Carrera Mercabarna

Mercabarna is generally, a market complex in Barcelona, where you can fill your shopping basket. However, on October 2nd, it becomes a running circuit with 5 and 10-kilometre tracks. Next to the market, a charity organisation gives breakfast and offers workshops and games for children.

5. Swimrun La Baells

This is another one of those races that's only suitable for the most experienced. If you have a good level of endurance in running and also like to swim, get ready to make the journey of 20 kilometres on land and 3 kilometres in water. This is a challenge within reach of very few people.

6. Cursa Eurofitness

It takes place on October 12th, which is a national holiday, and you can choose between the modality of 5 and 10-kilometre tracks. Verdum, Meridiana, paseo de Valldaura and de Andreu Ninare are some of the places that you will pass through.

7. Correbarri

If you are one of those people who takes running very seriously, then you are going to love this race. The best 'runners' from the 10 districts of Barcelona compete in search of victory.

8. Carrera de la Mujer

Only women can participate in this competition, but this doesn't mean that it's not one of the most popular races in Barcelona. In fact, last year, more than 27,000 women gathered here to walk 7 kilometres along its route, in the most supportive and festive environment imaginable.

This has been a brief review of the most important races held this autumn in Barcelona. Put on your shorts, shoes, T-shirt, and run!
