2018 will be a very special year for the Barcelona Firefighters’ Race: it’s turning 20! Since 1999, year on year, the firefighters of Barcelona have hosted a huge sporting event in the city, joined by thousands of city residents as they run the main streets.
On Sunday 22 April 2018, we look forward to celebrating 20 years with the best company possible: Barcelona’s firefighters and you. Registration is now open!
A spirit that has not been extinguished for 20 years
In 1999, Barcelona’s Firefighters set out on an exciting new adventure: running. That year, the firefighters reached an agreement with one of the world’s leading sports brands to be able to enjoy a popular sporting event with all the city residents in Barcelona.
Over its 19 years, it has experienced many joys, celebrated victories, seen how firemen have paid tribute to some of their colleagues, watched thousands of people cross the finish line to achieve goals, and simply seen thousands and thousands of smiles as people enjoy sharing sport with the firefighters of our city.
