Barcelona Mercé Race
The Barcelona Mercé Race is back with its traditional10-kilometre circuit that will pass through some of the city’s iconic sights during one of the city’s classic and most joyful sporting events that was first held more than three decades ago. The starting and finishing line are on the Avinguda Maria Cristina.
Once again, the Barcelona Mercé race will feature an adapted race for disabled runners who are unable to take part in the 10 k event.
This is a sporting activity that is committed to both the city and the world. The Barcelona Mercé race has established itself as the most altruistic of races. Since 2009 it has tirelessly supported all kinds of NGOs around the world, including UNICEF, UNESCO and the Peace Movement, amongst many others. Moreover, since 2012 a number of Barcelona-based associations have also been the beneficiaries of the participants’ generosity.
