Barcelona Marathon 2021

Show the world that humanity can win in the Barcelona Marathon.

Join our team of human rights heroes in the Barcelona Marathon. Run 26.2 miles in one of the coolest cities in the world - and treat yourself to tapas afterwards! The Zurich Marató de Barcelona course is one of the most popular in Europe. Cruise past the main landmarks of Barcelona, such as the Segrada Familia Casa Batlló, and conquer the city streets in this unmissable marathon.

As part of #TeamHumanity you will receive the very best support, including:

  • A branded Refugee Action running vest
  • Access to fundraising resources, including our fundraising guide, branded bunting, stickers and collection tins
  • Expert fundraising advice and support from our friendly team

Runners are asked to raise a minimum £400 sponsorship, and there is a £20 fee to register. We will be with you every step of the way with fundraising tips and inspirational stories of our work.

With every mile that you run, you will be changing the lives of people seeking safety here in the UK. At Refugee Action, we’re determined to ensure that Britain is a country that truly welcomes refugees. By taking on this challenge, you will be getting us one step closer to that reality.
