Cursa dels Bombers 2016. 17th edition of Barcelona Cursa Bombers 10k "firemen’s run" organized by Nike Running and the city of Barcelona. In 2016 the run is in October instead of usual month of April. Online registration is possible on the website until maximum number is reached. This is a very popular run in all Spain and normally it takes about a week to reach the maximum number of around 20.000 registrations. Usually around 400 firemen from Catalonia, Andorra and other parts of Spain take part in the run. 

A tradition of the firemens race in Barcelona is that four firemen from Barcelona (Bomberos de Barcelona) form a relay team and each member of the team runs 2.5 km of the 10k Cursa Bombers in full fire fighting gear which weighs almost 20 kg. They compete against other firemens teams to win the coveted Firemans team prize called "Premio Especial al Bombero Equipado."

The Cursa Bombers 10k run in Barcelona is also one of the runs in the BCN athletic challenge with seven 10k runs called BCN 10K Challenge. The IAAF International Athletics Association has awarded the "Cursa dels Bombers" the Bronze Label as one of the best events on the international athletics calendar.

Registrations usually open mid March and and stay open until mid April or until the maximum number of runners is reached. Visit Cursa dels Bombers websiteand click on "inscripcions" for more information about signing up for registrations for 2016.
