Barcelona marathon trivia

In 2012 a Catalan "gegant" giant - or actually a female "geganta" giantess - took part in the Barcelona marthon for the first time ever. The geganters team "Colla de Geganters de Sant Celoni"  entered the giantess Maria del Puig of Sant Celoni in the Bcn marathon to celebrate her 30th anniversary and carried the geganta on their shoulders from start to finish. Her giant male friend Martí de Sant Celoni and more geganters St Celoni were waiting for her at the finish line.
