Feel the asphalt beneath your feet and relish the sense of achievement of crossing the finishing line and maybe even beating your personal best by taking part in one of Barcelona's most prestigious sporting challenges.

With 94 competitions under its belt, the Jean Bouin (named after the eponymous French long-distance runner who took part in the 1912 Stockholm Olympics and beat various world records; he was killed in the First World War) has earned the honour of becoming the oldest running race in Barcelona.

The event, which is deeply rooted in the city's sporting culture, attracts all kinds of top-level runners every year, with over 11,000 people taking part in the two Open events (5km and 10km) and 2,000 entrants in the youth categories. The Jean Bouin is organised by Mundo Deportivo, Spain's oldest sports newspaper and one that belongs to the Grupo Godó, Catalonia's leading communications group.


Start: Av. Rius i Talet / Av. Maria Cristina (Parc de Montjuïc)
