BARCELONA HALF MARATHON UPDATE THEIR SANITARY MEASURES AND REMOVE SOME RESTRICTIONS

04/10/2021

Runners will not have to present the vaccination schedule nor a negative PCR test to take part in any of both races

The eDreams Mitja Marató Barcelona (Barcelona Half Marathon) and the Zurich Marató Barcelona (Barcelona Marathon) keep updated to the current sanitary measures in force. From now on, it won’t be necessary to hold a valid and complete vaccination schedule nor a negative for Covid-19 PCR test to take part in any of both races.

Barcelona City Council and the organizing company RPM Sports are in direct contact with PROCICAT, the Catalan governing body for civil protection and emergency action planning, to fully ensure that both running events will be carried out safely.

On September 15, it was announced that holding a complete vaccination schedule or a negative PCR test would be mandatory for all runners. This regulation applied to all major European marathons. However, satisfactory evolution of the pandemic is now allowing some loosening in both sanitary measures and the restrictions brought in some weeks ago.

Nevertheless, organizers will enforce any measures deemed necessary to ensure safe races to all runners, and will adhere to whatever restrictions being set by all relevant authorities at the time of celebration of both international running events.
