If you want to have an unforgettable New Year, La Cursa dels Nassos in Barcelona is a great chance for you to visit the city and have an interesting experience, participating in a 10km race through out Barcelona streets on December 31. For thousands of people that will be an amazing way of saying goodbye to the old year!

The first “La Cursa dels Nassos” was held in 1999 and since then, the number of participants has been increasing every year reaching 9,000 runners on December 2009. The race picks up the inheritance of the first Saint Sylvester Race on history, held in Sao Paulo in 1924.

The race will start at Selva de Mar Street and will have two starting times; the first one at 5:31pm and the second one at 5:33pm. The duration of the race is about an hour and a half, so it will be closed at 7pm.

Ten minutes after it starts, the participants will be running when would be dark outside, but fortunately the streets in Barcelona are well lighted so it will not be a problem for them to run at night.

All the participants must have a timing chip. For those who may not have their own, a single use chip will be available for 3€. It is mandatory for all runners to have a race number that is clearly visible and attached to the shirt.

The runners bag, with all the items can be picked up at: Complex Esportiu Municipal Mar Bella: Ave. del Litoral del Mar 86-96 from 29th -31 of December until 3pm.

Accommodations

Barcelona is one of the best destinations for tourists; there is so much to see that you will find yourself returning again and again. For your New Year´s vacation in Barcelona you might need to rent short term apartments on the Ramblas, next to Sagrada Familia or you may prefer beautiful views to the beach, so renting beach apartments will be the best option for you. In case you are coming with friends don´t forget to check special apartments for groups.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something
    that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.

    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    Hiya! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how
    to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!
