Although Summer is over, the temperatures are going down and we can start wearing clothes that cover most parts of our body, we must keep taking care of our health and staying fit. For those men and women who want to be healthy after the summer can join and participate in any of these races that from ShBarcelona we recommend. From now until December we suggest you run in:
November the 16th: Barcelona Ultra Trail: This race takes place on dirt roads of nine municipalities in Collserola, from the Carretera de les Aigues to Santa Creu d’Olorda, El Papiol or Cerdanyola, that’s why they call it “mountain race”. The showpiece is about 100km with 4500 meters of positive difference, but for those who are not prepared for this long distance there are distances from 21km to 69km.
November the 22th: Jean Bouin: this race has been celebrated for 91 years as a tribute to the French athlete Jean Bouin, killed in action in World War II. You can run 5km (with a goal in the Arc de Triomf) or 10km (with the goal on the Avenida Maria Cristina) depending on your shape. This historic race on pavement is the most crowded of the morning classical races of Mundo Deportivo.
