Your Experience

Barcelona is Spain’s second city, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and has something for everyone. Lively streets and squares, impressive architecture, relaxing parks, beaches, long boulevards... and of course one of the most popular marathons in Europe.

17,000 runners from over 100 nations are expected to take to the roads in March for the 2024 Barcelona Marathon, known locally as Zurich Marató Barcelona Marathon. In 2024, for the 45th year, the race is debuting a new flatter and faster course! The route stays close to the heart of the city hitting 12 iconic landmarks and ending at the incredible Arc de Triomf. 

The Barcelona Marathon has achieved IAAF Road Race Gold Label status and is one of the most popular marathons in Europe, not only for the beauty of the course, but also the city itself. 

Throughout the weekend, Marathon Tours & Travel team will provide support and guidance so you can be assured of a stress free weekend.

Event Information 

The Barcelona Marathon with Marathon Tours & Travel

Run the Barcelona Marathon with us. Our package takes care of you, so you can enjoy the event, take part in some sightseeing, and make the most of this beautiful coastal city.

The Course

The course itself passes by some of the 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 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. Runners will be expected to complete the marathon in 6 hours.

We are pleased to offer guaranteed entry into the Barcelona Marathon when you book your package with us.

Logistics Covered

Barcelona Marathon Route

The start and finish area will be slightly different to 2023 and is yet to be announced. 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.

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.
