Yuki Kawauchi from Japan will be taking part in the Cursa dels Nassos [Nose Race] in Barcelona for the first time on 31 December This will be a prelude to his big appointment in the Catalan capital: the Barcelona eDreams Half-Marathon on 15 February 2015.
But Kawauchi is not the only outstanding athlete in Barcelona's Christmas race, last year's winner, Ilias Fifa from Morocco, who came second in the Jean Bouin Race and first at the International Granollers Cross-Country Race this year, will be trying to keep his title. To do that he will have to take on athletes that include our own Marc Roig, Nacho Càceres and Toni Bernadó as well as Edgars Sumskis (Latvia), Andrés Acuña (Chile), Driss Lakaouaja (Morocco) and Buba Sabali (Senegal).
Hasna Bahom from Morocco, the winner of this year's Corte Inglés Race and the La Mercè Race and third at the 2014 Barcelona Marathon, heads the list of top-class women runners, followed by Marta Galimany, Anna Bove and Miriam Ortiz, as well as Jelena Abelle (Latvia) and Inna Lebdeieva (Ukraine), among others.22/12/2014
We don't want anyone to be left out or unable to take part in the last race of the year. That's why we're extending the registration period by an extra week (up to 3 pm on 27 December) and with two thousand shirt numbers available.
