The Cursa de la Mercè is back with its traditional 10 kilometre circuit that will pass through some of the city's iconic sights during one of the city's classic and most joyful sporting events that celebrates 40 years this year. The starting and finishing line are on the Avinguda Maria Cristina.
Once again, the Cursa de la Mercè will feature an adapted race for disabled runners who are unable to take part in the 10 k event.

This is a sporting activity that is committed to both the city and the world:
The Cursa de la Mercè has established itself as the most altruistic of races. Since 2009 it has tirelessly supported all kinds of NGOs around the world, including UNICEF, UNESCO and the Peace Movement, amongst many others. Moreover, since 2012 a number of Barcelona-based associations have also been the beneficiaries of the participants' generosity.
