2020 Barcelona Marathon to go ahead in ‘virtual’ format

Share

ATHLETES from around the world are invited to take part in the ‘virtual’ 2020 Barcelona Marathon.

The 2020 Barcelona Marathon was initially cancelled in August amid fears of the surge in coronavirus cases, as well as travel restrictions. However, the Town Hall has announced that the race will go ahead in “virtual” format between 8th and 15th November, with athletes from around the world invited to complete the distance in their own time.

The famous event will be free of charge this year and spread over the course of a week to allow participants to complete the 42,195 kilometres at their own convenience. Runners can take part individually or as part of a relay team from anywhere in the world.

The physical marathon was initially moved to October 25, but when Covid-19 restrictions made this impossible it was eventually scrapped. City councillor David Escude said it was important to the city that the marathon goes ahead in some form, as it has been going every year since 1980.
