Up to 8,000 athletes with a yellow chip can register.
Despite its festive atmosphere and the large number of people taking part, this Barcelona event has always been well organised and carefully supervised, with the guidance of the Catalan Athletics Federation (Federación Catalana d'Atletisme).
This has ensured that the general public can enter La Cursa El Corte Inglés and enjoy a fun experience, while amateur athletes can take part in a demanding sporting event. The event has become increasingly popular with all kinds of participants but it is still suitable for amateur athletes who require certain measures to monitor their performance, unlike the occasional athlete.
The official time, used for classification, is between from the firing of the starting shot and theuntil moment the participant crosses the finish line. However, participants with a chip may be provided with their actual time, elapsed between passing the start line and passing the finish line, but this is not considered official time.
The start of the athletes with yellow chip is designed by boxes. Each box is accessed according to bib number and bib colour. The entrance to the corresponding box will be on both sides of the central roadway of Avenida Diagonal.
Once again, all runners taking part in the race will wear a chip.
Runners without a yellow chip will have a bib with a chip on the reverse.
This will give you your exact time for the race.
In order for the bib chip to be read, it must be visible at the front of the body without anything covering it.
- Put the bib on your chest so that the number is visible to everyone.
- Use four safety pins at each corner of the bib.
- Do not cover your number with a jacket, backpack, etc.
- Be careful not to cover your bib when you take a look at your watch, especially when crossing the finish line.
- Do not bend the bib, especially the part with the chip.
- Do not carry your bib-chip in your pocket.
- Do not remove the foam from the bib.
Both the yellow chip and the bib chip are personal and non-transferable.
To qualify for the final diploma and the 3 medals for the first 3 classified in the male and female categories, it is necessary to complete the race, having passed through the different time controls established along the course.
Participants must be recorded passing all tracking points.
