After the cancellation in 2020 of the mythical Barcelona Marathon, the organization of the Zurich Marató has been able to adapt to the new times and look to the future with a renewed identity and with a clear tribute to the city of Barcelona: its streets, its history and L'Eixample.

The marathon will run through the most emblematic points of the city, such as the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, Camp Nou, Passeig de Gràcia, Sagrada Família, the Forum or the Barri Gòtic.

On November 7, 2021, Barcelona will celebrate the 42nd edition of the Zurich Marató de Barcelona, the most spectacular urban athletic event in the city. Compared to other marathons, the Zurich Marató de Barcelona is not only a 42.195 kilometers race, but it is also considered a citizen's party, thanks to some activities that have been scheduled.

In this new edition, the organizers have also scheduled a race for the youngest members of the family: the Kids Race by CaixaBank. The race will take place on Saturday, November 6 in the Avenida de la Reina Maria Cristina in Barcelona.

But given that our lives and habits have changed, the organizers of the marathon together with the Barcelona City Council, through the Institut Barcelona Esports and the company RPM have designed the Virtual 42/7 ZMB, a virtual and free version that proposes to run the 42.195 km between 8 and November, giving participants the opportunity to distribute them at their convenience. A virtual and free version that proposes to participants to run the 42.195 km between November 8 and 15, giving them the opportunity to distribute them at their convenience.

And as usual, solidarity will also be present in the Virtual 42/7 Zurich Marató de Barcelona, since each participant, at the time of registration, will be able to create a challenge through the solidarity crowdfunding platform: migranodearena.org to raise money for the cause of their choice.

In addition, runners who wish to do so can purchase a personalized solidarity finisher medal, where the name and time it took to complete the corresponding 42.195 km will be engraved. With an additional value of 5€, the organization of the event will donate 1€ of each medal, destined to the research on Covid-19 of La Marató de TV3 and Catalunya Radio.
