Excellent atmosphere, first class

The first edition of the Barça L’Illa Race had a great reception. A total of 1,541 people signed up to take part in this popular race running from the FC Barcelona Sport City to ‘L’Illa Diagonal’.

The atmosphere could be felt from the early hours of the morning. At 9.00 a.m., the Joan Gamper Sport City, start and finish of the competition, participants and spectators who didn’t want to miss the race, were already creating a notable atmosphere. A good response to this initiative of FC Barcelona which came up to expectations.

Poular Race and popular people

A mix of men, women, boys, girls, parents with their chidren and professional sportspeople, which was, without doubt, the best part of the race. A race in which we cannot forget the presence of munners from the FC Barcelona’s athletics section, who set the standard keeping Barça’s pride.

The podiums and prizes, the final reward

There were prizes for everyone though,; the race t-shirt was the unifying element of all those runners wearing it. There were also several promotional gifts for all the participants.

This was the first edition of the Barça-Illa race: happiness, illusion and a first class armosphere were attraction this Sunday morning where the weather was favourable and in which sportsmanship played an essential role. Just one big blue and red party.

Great organisation

The race was organised down to the finest detail: huts for handing out numbers and crisps to the runners and a deployment of assistants covering the seven kilometres of the route. This was another of the facts applauded by the people: the good organisation carried out.
