About the Race

FRANCIA Y ESPAÑA UNIDOS POR LA MONTAÑA 2 Países, 2 Valles, 2 Lenguas y 2 Culturas, en el evento estrella que une los dos valles separados por los Pirineos, pero a los que une la historia. Partiendo de la base de la estación de esquí nórdico de Los Llanos del Hospital, con 50,7 km y 2640 m+ de desnivel positivo, siguiendo un camino ya utilizado desde la Edad Media y recorrido durante siglos por ejércitos, comerciantes, contrabandistas, refugiados, emigrantes y viajeros de todo tipo y condición.

FRANCE & SPAIN IN A SINGLE RACE 2 countries, 2 valleys, 2 cultures, in this race that links the two valleys that are separated by the Pyrenees, but that have always been joined by the history. We start at the base at the cross-country ski resort Los Llanos del Hospital. We run around Los Llanos del Hospital, 50,7 km y 2640 m of elevation gain where you follow a trail that has been used since the Middle Ages during centuries by armies, tradespeople, smugglers, refugees, migrants and other travelers of all types. We run in the massif of Maladeta, the mountain area Maladeta with the mountain Aneto (3404 m) watching over us. We turn around towards France in North to run over the border through the mountain pass Portillón (2444 m), which was inaugurated at the 13the century and used by the troops of Napoleon. This is the entry to the valley of Bagnères-de-Luchon at the French side and there you have the glaciar lakes "Boums du Port" in front of you. We run downwards to Hospice de France, where we turn south to run back towards Benasque via the mountain pass Glera (2364 m), which was used by the Sovereign Military Order of Malta , already at the 11th century. We keep on running downwards towards the glaciar lake Gorgutes on our way to the finish line.
