16th March 2014: New Date
wow thanks for the info and the pacer with the buggy wow!!
Our club mentioned a club trip to do this next year so I'm hoping to do it as I was told they also do a HM and a 10k run as well so something that would suit all club members not wishing to do a marathon
hello, about to press the "enter" button on the Barca mara website, so am getting excited. will drive down as it's about 4 hours from me. Ooh something to train again for.
done it.....ooooh good feeling that is
I've entered this one although I haven't made any travel arrangements as yet.
Does anyone know if entries are still open?
After ripping my calf at the Thames Meander Half last week, I'm very doubtful for Chester Marathon (see what Physio says tomorrow) which was going to be my first, so looking for another to be my first and a few days in barcelona may be enough of a reward to get me out of the depression about having to pull out of Chester.
Hi Nelly - Yes - entries are still open! What did the physio say after your appointment? How is your calf doing now? I ran the Thames Meander full and had a good race (despite the rain). That last hill was a mean one, wasn't it?
you must have got drenced doing the full marathon, I managed to stumble over the line before that downpour, you guys on the full marathon must have got it all.
Yeah that hill wasn't very nice on the half let only at the end of the full.
Apparently I've managed to paritally detach my Achilles where it joins onto my calf muscle (physio says not as bad as it sounds) but around 4 weeks out so chester definately not happening for me, so looking at a couple including this one as possibles for the spring. i will beat this 26.2 one day
You'll get there Nelly! It was absolutely drenched. I have a picture on Facebook and I looked like a drenched rat
There's some great spring marathons out there and Barcelona is a great one. Hope to see you there!
Hi all I have enterd . I did the paris marathon last year along with one or two others on this thread.If it is as good as paris it will be brill.
me too Phil, so hopefully see you in Barca in March
Hi Phill, Onetit, Emmy - looks like a small Paris reunion is forming. See you there!
ooh great......see you there
We had our photo taken under the ark de triomph in paris, where will we have it taken in barcelona?
Ill ask a friend who ran barcelona last year about where to have the picture taken. Placa espana would be memorable but might be too crowded?
Hi everyone I have signed up - got my flights and accomadation sorted!!!
Emmy - not surprised to see you here (well see as you started the thread double not surprised!!!)
6 from my club have entered - flights sorted, but I don't think the accommodation has been yet. Should be a great weekend! I've decided that I'll try and follow a plan for this one - the 12 week (Nerurkar) one which seems to suit would see me starting Christmas week, so it may have to be an 11 week plan!?
i need to ask my club now what they want to do as i am now free that weekend
I'll be running this too. It will be my second marathon! I ran the first one in Milton Keynes, 2012, with a time of 4h 43 min. Hopefully this time will be able to shave some minutes, but I don't worry much about it. I'll go there to enjoy and be with my family
"where will we have it taken in barcelona?" You can take the pic under our triumphal arch, 'Arc del Triomf', which is right after you come out of the Arc del Triomf Metro station. That's how it looks like:
It looks like a good place to me .How far is it from the start.
I just signed up for Barcelona 2014 and can't wait! I was waiting to see if I got a place in London through the ballot but once again a big fat NO.
I've done something a little crazy though...Barcelona will be my marathon number 6 and then I'm running Rome marathon one week later as marathon number 7
I was looking for a new challenge and certainly found one!
There is nothing like running a marathon abroad as it's just one big sightseeing tour
