Friday night and the lights are low… No, it’s not another ABBA tribute, although the endorphins and momentum of the Midnight Music Run will get you in the mood for dancing on Friday 11th. The Midnight Runners are a group of fitness enthusiasts who are bringing their moonlit madness to Barcelona. The aim is simple: to combine a road race with music-based workouts, allowing you to get fit and explore the city like never before. Based in London, this organisation has taken its Midnight Music Runs international, visiting Edinburgh, Switzerland, and even as far away as Sydney, Australia. This month, they’re inviting you to explore the city’s streets on a nocturnal, 10 kilometre run. The course will pass by famous sights and include frequent breaks along the way. Don’t, however, be fooled by the word ‘breaks’—you won’t be enjoying an orange segment and a sit down. These intervals are designed to introduce exercises from a wide range of disciplines, such as circuit training and pilates, adding a dynamic element to the run. All this is accompanied by body-pumping music that will spur you on to the finish line. This event is free, and the fun continues post-run as you can party with fellow participants after midnight. So get ready, get set… Run!
The meetup location is Plaça de les Drassanes.
