Barcelona running routes to know the City
#1 Avenida Diagonal
Are you looking forward to knowing more about the city while exercising? This is the perfect route for you! The AVENIDA DIAGONAL in Barcelona is one of the most urban and famous streets. It travels all across the city and it has 11 km. Perfect for runners! Running along this street is the best choice if you want to see manorial buildings and monuments in your run.
#2 Parc de la Ciutadella
Do you prefer a big oasis of nature but without going far from the city? Definitely go to PARC DE LA CIUTADELLA! This park has 18 hectares all surrounded by gardens and beautiful monumental fountains. It can get quite busy here on a sunny day. We recommend you go in the morning of the evening to avoid big crowds.
#3 Parc Güell
Running with incredible views of Barcelona? This is your place. Park Güell is situated in the high part of the city, so it makes this park a wonderful balcony to the city. If you also add the fact that it is Gaudi’s modernist park, the route can’t get any better for running in Barcelona. Views+modernism+gardens.
Barcelona running routes in the Beach
#1 Passeig Marítim
Running right next to the MEDITERRANEAN SEA is all a luxe. In Barcelona, you have the big Passeig Marítim all well disposed of for this kind of plan. Along it is the best way to disconnect a little bit and enjoy the sea breeze. If you’re looking for some inspiration for a long run, watch the video below!

This is one of the most popular places to go running in Barcelona! Montjuïc is just the most beautiful place in Barcelona. A great place if you’re looking to run out of the hustle and bustle of the city. Enjoy the mountains just next to the city and immerse yourself in this sporting spirit (because you won’t be the only runner there!). This place is perfect for breathing and connect with nature, plus it also has one of the best views of the city and the sea.
#2 Carretera de les Aigües
