Arcadi Alibés born in Manresa, near Barcelona, 1 october 1959. I started running marathons in 1983, at age 24. The first was in New York. My personal best is 2:53:06 (Seville 1994) I completed 128 marathons, 79 differents, in 37 countries of the list of Marathon Globetrotters.

I am also a member of the Seven Continents Club, having run in every continent, including Antarctica. He ran in the six Marathon Majors and I am the first in the world to have run marathons in 23 cities that have hosted the Olympic Games summer, including Rio de Janeiro.

I am a sports journalist and I have written three books, all in Catalan, my mother tongue. My dream is that Catalonia becomes independent from Spain.
