It’s the month made for runners, with no less than three 10k runs to train for—let the carb-loading commence! First off is the second annual Cursa Barça on September 6th, which is organised by FC Barcelona and starts and ends at Camp Nou. Participants will get a free Nike t-shirt designed specifically for the occasion. Registration ends on September 2nd, though, so be quick if you want to take part. Next up is the popular Cursa Mercè on the 13th. Starting and ending near Plaça Espanya, this run forms part of the wider programme of activities for La Mercè and prides itself on its principles of solidarity. Subscription fees go towards supporting a number of charities and NGOs, which have included Unicef and UNESCO in the past. Sign up online until midnight on the 4th. Poblenou’s festa major, which starts on the 10th, brings us the final run this month. On the 20th, the last day of the festival, the 20th edition of the Cursa Atlética Poblenou will set off on a trail around the neighbourhood. Sign up before the 15th.
