The Salomon Ultra Pirineu yet again features as part of the Skunner® World Series. Held in the Spanish Pyrenees’ magnificent Cadí Moixeró Natural Park, the 110 km race is characterised by a colossal 6,800m vertical climb, linking eight mountain huts.
One thousand athletes will toe the start line in the small town of Bagà, where the race starts and finishes. It combines high mountain passes with urban areas, easily accessible to spectators following the race. The setting is spectacular with breath-taking scenery and magical sunsets.
