Cursa de Bombers Description

Cursa de Bombers - Running | Sports in Barcelona.

A popular 10K race in Barcelona, the Cursa de Bombers (Fireman’s Race) has been an annual recurring event since the first race was held in 1999.

Organized by city fireman in conjunction with a sponsorship from Nike, the race was developed to protest working conditions for Barcelona fireman, and has attracted more than 24,000 participants in recent years.

Despite the relatively short distance, the Cursa de Bombers often attracts big names in running who participate as a show of support for the firemen.

The Cursa de Bombers race route usually begins near the Parc de la Ciutadella on Avenida Marques de Argentera, then heads toward Passeig de Colom before climbing up Avinguda del Paral•lel. After a detour east at Calle Floridablanca, it’s a straight shot down Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes before looping back to the Ciutadella.

The first 4K are uphill, while the rest of the race offers a nice descent through town.

Cursa de Bombers race fees are €18, or €16 if you already own a ChampionChip – a miniature transponder marked with a unique ID number that is used in many races around the world.
