Barcelona 'Cursa de Bombers' 10K
Sunday 26 April, 2020

The Weekend:

Barcelona, just saying the name almost makes you want to burst in to song. One of the most popular European cities for a short break is also home to many road running races during the year. The ‘Cursa del Bombers’ (Race of the Firemen) is a long established event, and is sponsored by Nike. Over 28,000 runners take part, and it is quite a sight to see, as many of the runners wear their official ‘T-Shirts’.

What is included:

  • Met at Barcelona International Airport by ‘Running Crazy Ltd’ staff
  • Those flying in from Girona (Ryanair) will be met from Bus in Barcelona
  • Return transfer from/to airport (Bus Stop)
  • 3* Hotel on Bed & Breakfast basis (Hotel by race Start and Finish)
  • Discounted Race Entry
  • Reception Meeting/Map of City/Explanation of course
  • Goody Bag and Number delivered
  • ‘T-Shirt’
  • Early Morning Call on race day
  • Full Results Service by E-Mail
  • After-Race Celebration Evening
  • Optional Sightseeing Tours
  • Optional Pasta Party night before race
  • Optional CD-Rom/DVD Souvenir of race (with you in action)

The Race:

This is an extremely popular mass participation event, and most of the city centre is closed off enabling this event to take place. It is a dead flat extremely fast course, and if you are looking for a new PB for the 10K, this is one to give an ‘eyeballs-out’ effort, providing you start from the correct timing area. If it is just the participation you are interested in, then there will be plenty of people around you to make you feel part of something special.

Accommodation:

‘Running Crazy Ltd’ have secured 3* Hotel accommodation on a Bed & Breakfast basis at a hotel very close to the race start and finish area. This is ideal for pre-race preparations, kit security and after race changing and showering.

The Weather:

The mild climate at this spring time of year makes Barcelona a great place to run. Here are the figures:

  • average sunshine hours per day:  7
  • wet days in a month:  8
  • average temperatuire:  11-18 degrees celsius
  • humidity:  73% (at 0700 hrs) 59% (at 14.00 hrs)
  • average monthly rainfall:  1.7"

Entertainment:

Ensuring that your supporters and friends and family are kept interested and occupied is an important consideration. There is so much to do in Barcelona that everybody is catered for. There are organised open top bus tours, Gaudi and Dali sights, fantastic architecture at every turn, and all linked together by a great and easy to understand transportation system. The night time scene is famous too, and you can be kept busy 24 hours a day in this city.

Groups:

This weekend offers a great opportunity for Clubs & training partners to get together. Travelling together may also be more convenient and more fun too. There are discounts available for larger groups (20+), but even a group of just 10 runners will qualify for an additional prize for the first or last (you choose) to finish.

Prices

Our all inclusive prices are extremely competitive - from as little as just £149 for the weekend - we know we cannot be beaten on price   - and our runners continually tell us that they receive so much more on a 'Running Crazy' weekend break. All our 'resort races' offer half board accommodation, and for our 'Big City' races we know all the best value places to eat, drink and have fun. Indeed we book these for our pre-race and after race gatherings, meaning groups and individuals can just sit back, relax, make new running pals and let us do any worrying. No tourist traps for our clients! We know these races and places inside out, and will advise on what to see and do over the weekend, provide directions and maps - all very useful when on a tight timescale. All you have to do is run!
