Barcelona Half Marathon

This race has been on Marcia’s horizon for a long time. As she is approaching a significant birthday she decided to enter, along with Sarah Edwards, Simon Gingell, Andrea Playle and Mick Playle. Also for Marcia and Simon it’s part of their training for the London Marathon in April. Can’t think of a better place for training!

Race day had perfect weather conditions, as it had been cold the previous day and forecast wasn’t good. It was a nice flat race with the route going along most sights of Barcelona; starting by Arc de Triomf in the old town, to the famous Ramblas, along the beach and back to the finish at Arc de Triomf.

With 16000 runners, we all took it in our stride. Simon Gingell finished with another PB, a great time of 1:23:23!

We all had a fantastic weekend of sightseeing, eating and running! What could be better?
