The Salomon Run opens registrations for its sixth edition
The Salomon Run returns on April 14 to Barcelona and bets, again, for a circuit with its own personality, with views of the mountains and the sea and with Montjuïc as the main protagonist. “It’s a test that I highly recommend. It is not boring at all. You go upstairs, down the stairs, you enter emblematic places like the Olympic Stadium or the Poble Espanyol … every year more people are encouraged to run it “. This is how Jes Bonet speaks of the Salomon Run, winner of the last four editions in the female category. Bonet knows perfectly an appointment that on April 14 will celebrate its sixth edition in Barcelona and that today opens registrations at www.salomonrunbarcelona.com with a reduced price of € 15 until December 31.
In its sixth year of life, the Salomon Run has already established itself as one of the most different 10k of Barcelona. Urban but with a circuit that runs through Montjuïc, its personality is defined by more than 1,000 steps, climbs, descents, changes of terrain … and views that allow the runner to enjoy while running from the city and the sea. In addition, the route will enter, once again, the Poble Espanyol and the Olympic Stadium, being, once again, one of the few appointments that allows you to enjoy two magical corners of Montjuïc: the emblematic Estadi, which takes us to the Games of 92 and the picturesque Poble Espanyol, which, with its houses, squares and workshops of artisans, is unknown to many people from Barcelona. They are two of the great attractions of a race that surprises and entertains in equal parts but that has many more special points along its 10 kilometers.
Leaving at the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, the circuit also passes through the stairs of Jean Forestier, the MNAC or the arches of the Santa Madrona promenade and leads the runners to paths that move away from the bustle of the city until returning to the starting point
In its sixth edition, the Salomon Run opens registrations at a reduced price of € 15 until December 31. In addition, at the time of registration, brokers can donate a euro in solidarity to the Guttman Institute to contribute to the neurorehabilitation of people with a neurological injury. All the participants will receive a Salomon shirt, timing with chip and a healthy and abundant final refreshment. Registrations can be made at www.salomonrunbarcelona.com and are limited to 3,000 runners. In addition, Salomon will organize several previous trainings to discover in depth the circuit of those who will report through their social networks.
Salomon Run Vertical
If the Salomon Run will add six editions, her little sister, the Salomon Run Vertical, will be three years old in April. It is pure spectacle. Once the 10k test is over, the emotion will once again move to the stairs located next to the Montjuïc Fountain. There, 32 men and 16 women will test their speed in a vertical sprint of just over 54 meters, with a positive slope of 13m and more than 50 steps. After several elimination rounds, the winners of each category will be defined. Throughout the half-hour of the Salomon Run Vertical, a very special atmosphere is generated in Montjuïc: with dozens of fans standing on both sides of the stairs to enjoy and be amazed with the speed and effort of each runner.
The participants will be chosen by invitation based on previous results and by lottery: in fact, those who want to submit an application can do so through the form on the website that is already operational today.
