The annual Barcelona Marathon has become one of the major marathons in Europe and this year it was held on Sunday the 13th of March. Out of the nearly 17,000 runners that took part, there were 192 listed as coming from Ireland.


Following on from the successful outing last year when 8 members traveled, a total of 11 members made the trip this year. After months of training, there were plenty of personal best times recorded with some doing their very first marathon.
