La Cursa El Corte Inglés will return this April after two years of absence due to the pandemic
(15-3-2022) Under Armor will be present at the return of the Cursa El Corte Inglés in Barcelona, a test that will be held again on April 24 after two years of absence due to the pandemic.
In just over a month, on April 24, the Cursa El Corte Inglés will once again fill the 10-kilometre route along the streets of Barcelona with runners. The test will finally celebrate its 42nd edition, initially scheduled for April 19, 2020. The pandemic forced it to be suspended that year and also in 2021 (it was scheduled for June 19 this year).
Two years later, it returns hand in hand with Aura Fundació, a non-profit organization that works for the social and labor inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities.
Another entity that will be present at this reunion will be Under Armour, a brand that will collaborate with the test organized by El Corte Inglés. This reinforces the alliance between the brand and the retailer, with whom last September it set up its largest shop-in-shop store in Europe at El Corte Inglés in Portal de l’Àngel.
The starting signal will be at 9:00 AM on Avenida Diagonal, just in front of El Corte Inglés Diagonal with the arrival at Plaza Cataluña. Passing through streets such as Passeig de Gràcia (at kilometer three the Cursa will pass in front of the Pedrera building), Aragó or Gran Via de les Corts catalanes mean that the new circuit enhances the city of Barcelona more than ever.
This year the Cursa El Corte Inglés is more sustainable and secure, which is why registration is only online and can be formalized until Sunday, April 17, at 24:00.
Throughout the previous 41 editions, 2,409,838 people have participated in this event.
Campaign ‘The Gift of the Game’
With this local initiative, Under Armor continues to advance in its commitment announced at the beginning of the year with its The _Gift Of The Game_ campaign, which promotes access to sport for everyone through various initiatives that allow certain barriers that limit access to be broken down to sport. “The opportunities offered by sport are innumerable and essential for society,” says Patrik Frisk, CEO of Under Armour.
