In the racing category, Andy Shearer took himself off to Spain and along with his friend Kevin Druce entered the Barcelona Marathon.

The great Catalan capital was host to the Zurich Barcelona Marathon which was reborn in 2005.

The race starts in the Avinguda, Maria Cristina and the course it follows is one of the most attractive in Europe.

The favourable climatology that characterizes Barcelona combined with a fully urban circuit that passes through the main landmarks of great interest for the runners.
