The sixth edition of the race Màgic BDN Running, will take place next March 26th 2017. It is a 10-kilometer race that runs through the most emblematic areas of Badalona, a city 10km far from Barcelona. The circuit is approved by the Catalan Athletics Federation. The race is timed by ChampionChip and is included in the ChampionChip League: It scores double. An extensive program of parallel activities will be announced for all audiences some weeks before the race so that all runners can be engaged and can get in shape for the event. The race is open to everyone who signs up within the stipulated deadline. Màgic BDN Running promotes sports practice and a series of parallel values: it is a civic and festive race, and above all, a caring race: It is a memorial to Luis Condon, a badalonese athlete, who died from Leukemia. That is why the organization donates part of the inscription to the fight against this disease.
With the slogan “Much more than running!“, this year’s edition aims to emphasize that Màgic BDN Running is more than just a sporting event.
