UK based runners with a soft spot for Spanish food and wine will be delighted to hear that Sports Tours International have supplemented their 2018 holiday package portfolio with the addition of the Barcelona Marathon.
The move comes as the marathon prepares to celebrate its 40th year on Sunday 11 March and offers guaranteed entry, plus accommodation in the Catalan capital, to interested runners.
Renowned for its attractive course and incredible support, the marathon takes in some of the city’s most iconic spots including Gaudí's la Sagrada Família and the Camp Nou.
With a mid-March date, race conditions are generally favourable too, and with a predominantly flat circular route, it is also viewed as a great opportunity to set an early season PB and has been a big hit with UK runners throughout the years.
The package from Sports Tours International will guarantee entry to the event plus a three night stay at a four star hotel. Kicking off on Friday 9 March and leading through to the expo the following day, the deal provides runners the ideal platform to prepare for competing at one of Europe’s leading marathons.
