Do you like running? If so, you've got until May 29 to sign up for the 32th edition of the Corte Inglés Fun Run, which is on May 30. Enrolment is free and you can do it either online or at any El Corte Inglés Store (Plaza Catalunya, Portal de l'Àngel, Diagonal, Francesc Macià).

The 10934 meters fun run starts at 9.30 a.m. at Plaza Catalunya, goes all along Aragón St. out to the Plaza Espanya, up Montjuic, into the Olympic Stadium and then back to the Plaza Catalunya. 

The Cursa held its first edition in 1979, when 17,184 runners took part. By the year 1994 the number of participants in the Cursa had grown to 109,457 athletes, a number of runners that still today holds a Guinness Record. In its last edition, 54.795 people took part in the Cursa.
