The Nose Race sees off the year with a whole host of sport and fun

Fun run. To prepare yourself properly for the run, an official training session has been planned for 14 December, at 9.30 am at the Estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc. 

A year on and the Nose Race is back, a golden opportunity for Barcelona’s runners who wish to finish the year following their passion for sport. The official date, obviously, is the same for each year, 31 December, at 5.30 pm, although this year’s race offers new features.

The Nose Race will be even more sustainable than ever and, what’s more, this edition will lose its traditional set-off and finishing-line arch, with a more innovative arch in its place, which will include lasers, fire, a big TV screen and plenty more surprises.

The race is one of the events making up the Challenge BCN 10K, Barcelona’s 10 km-race league, and the Lliga Championship. This year’s Nose Race will continue its traditional 10-kilometre route, setting off from C/ Selva de Mar, covering the entire coast line up to Pla de Palau, before turning along Av. Marquès de l’Argentera to C/ Marina. Once there, it will turn and run along C/ Bonaventura Muñoz up to Av Diagonal, where it will once again join C/ Selva de Mar and return to its starting point. Thanks to the agreement between the organisation and Rodalies Catalunya, participants will be able to go to Barcelona and return to their destinations for free by train, from any “rodalies” [local-commuter] station.

To sign up for a new edition of the legendary Nose Race, you’ll need to follow this link where you’ll find the app to register online. You will also be able to register in person, from 16 to 22 December, at the Horta Esportiva complex.

Remember, to be able to choose the classification and prizes in the visually impaired, learning-disability, cerebral palsy and wheelchair category you will need to attach a copy of a card confirming your condition and send it to nassos@lasansi.com. If you need a guide, you must include the relevant data (first name and surnames, ID document, date of birth, mobile phone number and email address).

Official training

To prepare yourself properly for the run, an official training session has been planned for 14 December, at 9.30 am at the Estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc. Taking part there will be Spanish coaches, Olympic and Paralympic athletes to help you and sort out any queries you may have over preparing for the race.
