The craziest race returns to Barcelona

Each year as Christmas approaches, Buff Epic Run in Barcelona takes place. Contestants taking part in this crazy event will run 8K, where they will be faced with a number of obstacles. There are 17 obstacles in total, which include a mud-pit, foam bath, tyres and many others. Not only will you have to tackle all those obstacles, you'll have to do it in fancy dress! Make sure you go all out, as there are prizes for the best costumes!

The evolution of the Buff Epic Run

The run began on 21 December 2008 when more than 1000 participants took part. Year on year, more than 25,000 people have participated in different fancy dress costumes. Contestants have dressed up as superheroes, ballerinas, animals, politicians and more. The event was created with the intention of having fun while bringing families, friends and co-workers together. Music has always been an important aspect of the event, with performances from DJs, live bands, brass bands and dancers making it truly unforgettable.

Originally, the run took place at Montjüic's castle, however since more people have started to participate, it has had to relocate to the Fòrum — proving how popular this Christmas event really is. This location has much more space to accommodate for the growing number of participants and is ideal for introducing new obstacles to overcome. It is also right next to the coast, providing spectacular views to enjoy.
