Race Rules

Our itinerary and details regarding the race are based on current information available at the time this package was released for sale.

All race rules and procedures need to be followed.

Full details can be found on:

Starting Pens and Bib Numbers

Although we are licensed to sell official entries for the 2023 Barcelona Marathon, we have no influence over the allocation of starting times and bib numbers.

Closer to the event we will send you a link which will allow you to complete the registration process for the 2023 Barcelona Marathon. Once you have finalised the registration process, the race organisers will allocate you a starting time and bib based on the information provided.

Barcelona Marathon Route

The start and finish area is at Plaça d'Espanya square. The course passes most iconic landmarks in Barcelona, such as the Sagrada Familia (Church) and Camp Nou (football stadium) and because it takes place early in Spring the weather conditions are usually ideal. The course is relatively flat, with the most noticeable climb coming in the final kilometres as you make your way inland away from the port. Because of the way the more modern areas of Barcelona were designed, there are plenty of wide, straight sections along main roads.

Security Policy

Marathon Tours & Travel's security policy requires that anyone staying in our room block must be registered as part of our package.  If a registered client attempts to house a non-registered guest and /or invite them to attend any of our scheduled activities, the registered guest’s tour package will be forfeited and parties may be denied access to future tours.
