A marathon is a race that you should thoroughly prepare: hard and well-planned training, discipline, effort, continuous improvement. But the reward is huge: running through Barcelona and its wonderful monuments: SagradaFamilia, Casa Batlló, La Pedrera… it is a source of motivation itself!
In fact, running a marathon is a unique experience that connects you to the city in a really special way. Runners usually say, “you run 30 kilometers with your legs, 10 with your head, 2 with your soul and 195 meters with tears in your eyes”.
