The half-marathon in Barcelona, also known as the Mitja Marató de Barcelona, is held every February. It’s the second largest running event in Barcelona next to the Marathon.
The route takes the runners from the Arc de Triomf, by the old town to the Plaça Catalunya. From there it goes down the famous Ramblas and along Avenida del Paral·lel. The runners then go to the Fòrum and along the beach again at the Parc de la Ciutadella to Arc de Triomf, which is the finishing line.
Coach Core is a charity which dramatically improves life chances for young people who are disadvantaged and/or not in education, employment or training (NEET).
Through sports apprenticeships they can unlock meaningful education and employment opportunities, whilst also positively working with communities in real need of sports provision, thereby getting literally thousands of other young people across the UK physically active.
The pandemic has highlighted the huge value of activity for physical and mental wellbeing. Coach Core programmes have never been more needed.
