Calella, city of athletes
One more year, the city of Calella will be the ideal place chosen by many athletes for their final preparation before performing a marathon.
Calella is the chosen city due to its proximity to Barcelona and the meteorological, geographical and logistical conditions it offers; the fantastic Mediterranean microclimate, the passage of the Montnegre corridor, the beach, the promenade of the sea, gymnasium and wellness center, physiotherapy, etc.

In February and March two marathons are held in Barcelona; the eDreams Mitja Marató BCN and the Zurich Marató.
eDreams Mitja Marató BCN: Celebrated on February 10, 2019 with a distance of 21,095km that runs through the streets of the Catalan city. In recent years, the race has experienced considerable growth in terms of participation, reaching the 17,855 enrolled in the last edition.
In this way, the eDreams Mitja BCN is among the most important half marathons of the state territory. It should be noted that the eDreams Mitja Marató de Barcelona goes down in history thanks to the world records in half marathon that got the Kenyan athlete, Florence Kiplagat. This fact makes the race become one of the ideal destinations for those runners who want to beat their personal record.
