In a lost valley in the majestic Andorran mountains, this extremely demanding race summits the highest point of the Principality, the Comapedrosa at 2,942m.
The start and finish is in Arinsal. Once on the trail, the first steep ascent reaches 1,958m at the Coll de les Cases through woodland. From here, the landscape opens up to follow a ridge with scarce vegetation leading to the Pic de les Fonts (2,748m). The descent is via the traditional route through the Estany Negre and the Comapedrosa hut returning to Arinsal.
With this tough 21 km loop, the ascent involves a 1,000m vertical wall over just 2 km – a challenge to satisfy the most demanding skyrunner.
