Circular, through city streets. Undulating. Passes lots of sights.
Large, busy expo. Plenty of retail opportunities.
Start Line / Aid Stations
Well organised bag-drop, plenty of toilets. Wave start.
Good-quality T-shirt and medal.
Plenty and varied. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza, a couple of minutes’ walk from the start.
Again plenty and no problem finding somewhere.
A marathon we’ve repeated, so it must be good! Dramatic start, with confetti cannons and a send-off from Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé singing (of course) “Barcelona”. Worth it just for that!
