  • Cursa de La Mercè

    Cursa de La Mercè

    The race bearing the name of one of our city's patron saints is a highlight of our main festival, Les Festes de la Mercè. The competition was one of the first sporting events in the city organized to show solidarity with good causes. This celebratory event is also a serious competition for everyone taking part, as it has been part of the BCN 10km Challenge since 2010.

    This year the race returns in two different formats: in person and virtually. The in-person format comprises a 10km route restricted to 6,000 runners split into 3 groups. Each group will leave the starting blocks at a different time. The virtual format will allow runners to take part in the event on another non-demarcated circuit, and even walk the route, at a chosen distance of 5km or 10km.

    Come and get running for a good cause!
