Running From the Fire
We waived down the ambulance, briefed the EMT personnel with a triage report as they exited, and as the scene was overcome with medical and police personnel, we all quietly left and went back to training. No one stayed around to do interviews with the news crews that arrived. Nobody cared about that. We had done a good thing. We had done the right thing. Lastly, thank you to the man who pulled into the parking lot out of nowhere, driving a ThyssenKrupp truck, who had a fire extinguisher and quickly put out the fire burning around the engine of the silver vehicle.
He left as quickly as he arrived. Whoever, you are…thank you. Thank you Alf, Jeff, Marc, Mike, Cain, and Ernesto — who were there doing the right thing — running towards the fire to help others — from start to finish. Pingback: Kravology - Running to the Fire. Running to the Fire CJ Kirk. Ana was a very good guide. She was very knowledgable and sweet and easy to be with. Barbara was wonderful as our guide in this very unique experience. It was like a 4th of July firework show up close. It was a great experience to immerse in a true Catalonia tradition. Guide gave good orientation and made trip very memorable and fun.
This was excellent! By far the best tour we booked in Barcelona. Think Mardi Gras in New Orleans with fireworks up close and personal! Our guide, Barbara, was terrific. After giving us fire-retardant capes to wear and optional eye protection, she showed us how to safely jump into the fire and play along with the local crews dressed as devils and witches.
This tour was worth every penny!! This is one of the most exhilarating and unique experience I had in Barcelona and easily in Spain.

Took a 1-hr ride out of Barcelona to a nearby village to participate in a traditional Catalan fire running correfoc festival. Our guide, Barbara, was wonderful and took great care of us. For a start, we got to meet the devils the fire runners in person and learned about the festival before the festival commenced.
Once the festival starts, expect a crazy amount of fire, firecrackers and fireworks spewing everywhere! This goes on for At the end, we even took photos with the devils! Go with little or light items so you can move around easily! Our tour guide Barbara Ruiz Soliva was very knowledgable. Our family participated in the fire running tour in Tarragona.
Barbara had a personal relationship with one of the groups and she made introduction before the event and had us fully emerged with the group to have a full experience of the event. She properly prepared us with protective wear and talked us through what will happen. My husband who is more reserved found himself participating in this fun.

We did this on the last night of our vacation and it was the perfect way to culminate a wonderful time in Spain. I went to Barcelona for a few weeks, and this was the most amazing part of the trip! Alex picked us up, and took us to a small village outside Barcelona where they were having their traditional fire run. We got to listen to the music and follow in the streets of the fire run. You get to see first hand the culture and traditions of the amazing villages of Catalonia.
It was a nice break from the typical touristy things in the city. I definitely recommend this to anyone considering it. Its what happens when Barcelona plays Real Madrid! The country pauses to watch and we tourists reap the benefits It was initially just the Living It fire running tour but we got the towers as a match day bonus. I had a ball, not just as an outsider looking in but an outsider actually getting their hands on experience, literally. Well done to Living It!
We really enjoyed this tour and would rank it as one of the best we have ever taken. We participated in the Fire Running festival of a small town. We were welcomed by the local people as honored guests. The festival was fun, the local people were great and we all had a wonderful time.
All in all a wonderful experience in getting to know and interact with the local people. This was the best tour I have ever been on. It was great from start to finish. The tour guides included us in the whole show. We met the fire running team members and had the time of our lives. We have been to many countries and on many tours. This one was outstanding right from the start.
The guides provided an experience out of the ordinary and we were impressed by their keenness and professionalism to make sure all were involved in the festival. We did not expect to see or participate in the human tower, had only booked for the fire running but, it was fortuitous that we were there.
They could have, as many other tour guides and companies would have done, let us watch from the sidelines. This was the defining difference, that we were taken behind the scenes to meet the people involved with the fire running and human towers, and, the guides expertly ensured that we could participate. We had plenty of time for an excellent meal from one of the many cafes in Girona.
We would never see any thing like these festivals at home in Australia. We had an absolutely unique and wonderful evening! Barbara and Alex were incredible. We went to Girona and were lucky to see human towers as well as the fire running. They were able to get us to be part of the human towers. We met the devils before the fire running and they were very happy to share what was going to happen and tell us where to be for the best experience.
You will be in the fire running, so be prepared to have sparklers falling all over you. I recommend long sleeves and pants, though you will get hot. This tour takes place all over Catalonia so before you book you may want to consider how far you will be from Barcelona. The time says about 6 hours, our tour was 8 because of where we went and also because it was delayed for a soccer game. All in all one of the best experiences I have had. It was such a good time spending time with you!
You are VERY good at what you do. A good time was had by all! I would love to share an great experience fire running festival with Livingit. I was picked up from Barcelona to where fire running has done with Alex.

It happened one hour and half far from Barcelona in small town. Everything was well-organized and Alex-tour guide-was really kind and professional. The stunning views of fire running, the wonderful performances. Thanks a lot. Thank you for such a great evening. This experience was the highlight of my trip in Barcelona.
