Abstract: This thesis is situated at the disciplinary intersection between anthropology of the body, feminist epistemology and geography, and aims to reflect theoretically and methodologically on post-human corporeality through the ethnographic exploration of the everyday habit of running in Barcelona in the contemporary era. The main concern to which this research responds is the call from critical social sciences to construct new models of body representation based on flows, mutations, transformations, processes and changes rather than maintaining unitary visions of the self in its classic dualistic and universalist modalities. For this, I begin by proposing a concept I have termed 'continuum cuerpociudad' (body-city continuum) that suggests a material continuity between human bodies and urban environments that is activated through daily practices involving movement, in this case non-professional running. The central axes of this investigation revolve around the relational analysis of the union between the bodies that run, urban spaces and environments, and digital technologies.
