Fira de Barcelona, with La Santander Cursa de les Empreses

For the fourth consecutive year Fira de Barcelona is taking part in the organisation of the Santander Cursa de les Empreses (Santander Company Race) as the main partner of an event that hopes to attract more than 4,000 athletes representing their companies on 15 December.

As part of its policy to promote sport among its employees by means of different initiatives, Fira de Barcelona is partnering this event by providing it with its indoor facilities at the Gran Via venue, through which three kilometres of the competition’s ten and five-kilometre routes will run.

Fira de Barcelona will also provide the organisation with the venue’s Europa Hall on 13th and 14th December to serve as the place where the registered runners can collect their bib numbers and receive a 2×1 invitation to attend La Ciutat dels Somnis, the new Children’s Festival.

La Santander Cursa de les Empreses has different categories, ranging from the individual professional category to the category for mixed teams made up of four runners. In the professional category, the athletes, who can wear sports shoes, will have to run in the outfit or uniform of their profession, which means it will be possible to see executives, firefighters, police officers and doctors taking part in the race.

Since its first year, this competition has raised money to help people at risk of social exclusion. In 2019 the organisation will ask participants to donate all kinds of sports clothing and footwear, which will be given to the Arrels Foundation to help homeless people.
