When does entry open?
Have you tried contacting the organisers via the contact link on their website?
They might be able to tell you.
It looks like this is now open. I really would like to do this as my first road marathon next March. Would people recommend booking individually or through Running Crazy? I'd appreciate info from anyone who has been ,thanks.Also any recommendations for hotels suitable for a family tostay at would be appreciated.
Barcelona Marathon on St Patrick's day - Now that sounds like a party!!!!
thanks muzza, after pricing it up we have booked with easy jet too so Im in ! aahh. first road marathon.we are staying in an appartment between Nou Camp and the start. I spent awhile reading reviews on Trip Advisor so hope its quiet enough the night before the race. There doesnt seem to be the need for a letter from a GP like at Paris to race.. Im glad you are giving it another go.
Just realised that my profile picture is from when I was in Barcelona- still not signed up yet - waiting to see how Dublin goes next month - I did 54 miles lst week and the high mileage is starting to wear the legs out - I have clocked up 500 km since July 25th
just entered The Valentine 30k as a practice run for the big day. Has anyone else got other races booked in the run up to March? I'm looking forward to starting proper training and have enjoyed reading how people are getting on training for Chester/Loch Ness etc. Good Luck to them all.
I am thinking of runing Barcelona next year too . I have been looking at easy jet and flights not coming up bad at all , in fact seen £14.00 for the return journey.I like Muzza always book our flights , rooms etc ourself.It works out so much cheaper and is more flexible too with dates etc.
I ran Rome Marathon this year which really did enjoy but along with the cobbles and heat struggled a bit towards the end. Saying that though I was happy with my time although not a P.B. gave me a GFA for London which I think am defering for next time. With Rome though we came back on the Monday so would like a while longer in Barcelona after the race. We had a good rapport on the Rome Marathon thread and ended up meeting up for a drink post race.
I should too be running the Valentine 30K next year Melbow. I have run it before and enjoyed it and it is a good training run prior to the Marathon.
I need to get myself fit now ! Just been Island Hopping round the Greek Islands and too much food and drink , plus not much running
Crazy Lady, well done on your Rome time. GFA for London is impressive. Barcelona will be my first road marathon so just aiming to finish. Good to hear you have entered the valentine 30k too,I hope it is a good tester for the marathon. Others have recommended it so am looking forward to it. Sounds like a scenic course.
We're having 3 nights in Barcelona. I would have liked longer but I know school will frown at the kids having 2 days off. never done it before but they will love the experience.Got to celebrate big "40" My son is hoping to fit a tour of the Nou Camp in and I fancy visiting La ramblas
Glad you had good hol. let the traing begin......
We went on a day trip to Barcelona from costa Brava years ago when the children were small. They loved the Nou camp well and one of our Son's was and is footlball mad.
Looking forward to seeing you at the 30K, it is a good race .
Hope your Mrs decides to do Barcelona Muzza . I agree though it would be hard work. I am defering London as Daughter is due to have a baby around the date and with Barcelona being a Month earlier would work out so much better, There is always next year for London.
Accomodation booked - Booking Flights tomorrow - Training Schedule in my Outlook Calendar (My Asics)
That's it - flights and accomodation booked - Barcelona Marathon on St Patrick's day and then to the George Payne Irish Bar to party the night away with some more plastic paddies like myself (Exiled Yorkshire Man Living in Meath) http://www.thegeorgepayne.com/
well, everyone. I knew training for a spring marathon would mean some dire weather to train in ,but if this carries on I'll have webbed feet. Thur eve I could wring my clothes out. Today I was running into the wind and not actually getting any where. did 12 miles this morning (off road-with paths as rivers)in 2 hrs 45 mins!! how slow.
Have you all started your training and doing well?Hope its all going to plan . lets hope for a mild winter. Happy running
Just popping in to say hello. I ran Barcelona in 2010 and 2011.
I have nothing but good things to say about the experiance. Really well organised event. Entertainment and good support all around the course. Sports drinks and water every 5km and also wet sponges every 5km (ideal for cooling down). You need to attend the expo on either Friday or Saturday to get your bib (they put your name on the bib automatically), chip and technical tee. The expo is right at the start/finish line, so you will know where that is prior to Sunday.
Coincidentally the thread met up in the George Payne Irish pub afterwards.
Any questions I can answer I will be more than happy to.
