Two very special races will also be held at the same time as the World Roller Games 2019 to make the most of the fact that Barcelona is set to be the world roller sports capital next July: 9K Roller Barcelona and Roller Kids Barcelona.
The aim of 9K Roller Barcelona is to attract the participation of all amateur roller skaters aged over 10 from the city and throughout the rest of the world who are in Barcelona at the time or wish to visit to take part in the World Roller Games with this race.
Roller skaters aged between 4 and 12 will also be able to participate in this great festive event in a race created specifically for them: Roller Kids Barcelona, which is set to be run over a distance of approximately one kilometre.
Both skating events will be held in a section of the WRG 2019 Marathon course on 14 July from 12pm (with two separate starts). The start and finish will be located in Passeig de Gràcia on the corner of Carrer Provença. The circuit will continue along Avinguda Diagonal to turn around in Plaça Francesc Macià and return to the starting point.
Registrations are now open at this link until 10 July. The price is €10 until 26 June and €12 between this date and the registration deadline. You can also register for €10 from 4 to 10 July in the RollerLand space located in the Olympic Esplanade. All registered participants will receive a commemorative gymsack of the races.
