This weekend is full of activities as well as the Flower festival, a more sporting event is the 10km and half marathon road races which are annual staples around the centre of Girona.
Road running is very popular here, and like the professional cyclists have discovered, Girona is a perfect place for most sports in terms of weather and interesting terrain. All ages join in these runs with many schools and clubs participating which makes for a wonderful atmosphere both along the streets and between the participants.
Todays half marathon was won in a time of 1hour 4min 34 by Mohamed Ben Barka of Barcelona which was just outside the course record.
Several thousand people are feeling tired but happy as they head off for lunch with their families and friends this sunday, well done everyone!
