The university boat race in Barcelona
UNIRUN: Inspired by the university boat race, this popular run is a competition between universities where everyone is welcome to take part.
Inspired by the classic annual boat race between the two prestigious English universities of Oxford and Cambridge, the Unirun is designed to get the twelve Catalan universities involved in a popular running event in Barcelona.
The run is held over a distance of 6,779 metres, the same as the boat race, and is a competition between universities as besides registering individually to take part, runners must also identify themselves with one of the twelve Catalan universities.
The race is open to allcomers: university students, former students, future students, teaching staff, workers, providers, relatives and anyone identifying with one of the Catalan universities
The run starts and finishes in the Parc del Fòrum in Barcelona, with a route around the district of Sant Martí, the Port del Fòrum and the Parc de la Pau, in Sant Adrià de Besòs.
