Barcelona casual road runners Weekly Meetup
Meet in front of the main gates to the Park de Ciutadella, the entrance that faces the Arc De Triomph. You can leave your stuff at a bar called "Anduriña" located on C/ Pujades 5 (https://www.google.es/maps/place/Passeig+de+Pujades,+5,+08018+Barcelona/@41.389523,2.1816492,17z/data=!4m8!1m2!2m1!1spaseo++pujades+5!3m4!1s0x12a4a2fd5cf1a693:0x248e3d87b215ea23!8m2!3d41.389519!4d2.1838379?dcr=0) . A description of the route is below for your information. After the run, we take a group photo and then head to the bar for some hydration. We will always wait 5 minutes while we organise (= chat) but no more so please be on time. [:)] The distance is about 10 kilometers (~6 miles). However, there are plenty of opportunities to turn back before and sometimes people only run around 6.5km (4mi). The typical pace is around 6min/km = (around 9:40/mi). Some people go slightly slower and some, especially towards the last 1-2km, go faster. Most of the time people are talking/chatting so it's honestly a casual run. Please note people run at their own risk, and please if you have any medical condition make sure you let someone know and be sensible, run within your abilities. And don't forget to check our facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/319006355235925/) for news and activities! The route on an interactive map on Endomondo: http://app.endomondo.com/workouts/443994688/3024046 Image and description below: On Tuesdays we run through the park, take a right to exit the park and immediately take a left to run alongside the round wall of the zoo (Passeig de Cicumvallacio). We then turn right at Carrer de Ramon Trias Fargas and head towards the beach. We then take a left turn and run along the beach heading north-east. Along the coast, we cross the Passeig Maritim de la Mar Bella for a quick stop at the water fountain, and then turn back. The main change on the way back is that we turn right at the tram station along the other wall of the zoo (continuation of Carrer de Welliington) and then we finally take a left on Passeig de Pujades heading back to the meeting point.

Lo que hacemos

Hi and welcome to the Barcelona Casual Road Runners group!

We are a bunch of sociable runners of all levels who enjoy running in good company. Chatting is an integral part of all our runs but we also sweat a lot! :-)

We run every Tuesday and Thursday night at 20h00 and we run between 9km and 11km in a time of between 50 and 65 minutes. However, this doesn't mean you shouldn't come along if you can't achieve this kind of pace. We are more than happy for people to come along and run whatever you can, use the group to push yourself and you might be surprised.

We do have some regular runners that like to run as far as they can with us then drop off and go, and we have runners that sometimes cut the course to make it shorter. There really is NO pressure to run the whole distance and there is always at least two groups of runners that form so please do give us a try, people improve very quickly.

So please, if you're not sure, come along anyway and try us out! There are always more people attending than RSVPs and we have not missed a single meetup since the group was founded. Even in rain there have always been at least two runners!

See you soon
