Andorra Ultra TrailVallnord is a test that offers the opportunity to admire Andorra from its highest peaks. In its different modalities, the participants will visit the Communal Natural Park of the Valles del Comapedrosa and that of the Sorteny Valley, they will pass through the MadriuPerafita Claror Valley, world heritage by UNESCO , caressing the 3,000 meters of altitude in a purely mineral environment.

In this event you will be able to know the magic of the peaks under the light of the full moon, the good coexistence in the aid stations, the spirit of improvement, the good humor and the friendship that are born sharing this great adventure.

A resplendent flora, some rivers full of foam that descend the slopes, some partially frozen glacial lakes, some deep forests, some altitude lawns scented with licorice, some herds in total freedom, the cry of the marmots, the flight of the bearded vulture, the smiles of 300 volunteers and the enthusiasm of the Andorran public who accompany you with their words of support, a great sporting event but also and above all the sharing of common values, the values of the mountain: hospitality, conviviality, authenticity and respect from the other and from the middle.

Five modalities that adapt to all tastes and in which to discover the country of the Pyrenees.

A resplendent flora, a few rivers filled with foam that descend the slopes, some partially frozen glacial lakes, some deep forests, a tall grass scented with licorice, some flocks in total freedom, the cry of the marmots, the flight of the bearded vulture, the smiles 400 volunteers and the enthusiasm of the Andorran public who accompany you with their words of support. In short, a great celebration of sport but also, and above all of the promotion of common values, the values of the mountain: hospitality, coexistence, authenticity and respect for the other and the environment.

Five tests await you and now you will have to choose. Some races for all tastes that will make you (re) discover the country of the Pyrenees, the land of princes.

We will emphasize the essential values for us:

  • sustainability: reusable and recyclable material (individual ecogots), biodegradable marking (paint), selective collection (plastic, paper, front batteries ...), cleaning the course after the race, etc.
  • social responsibility: we, as runners, must think of people who are not fortunate enough to enjoy nature in the same way. There is also the possibility of participating in a march open to all, including people with disabilities. It is the Solidaritrail.


Travel

The Andorra Ultra TrailVallnord has five different modalities adapted to each type of runner.

Eufòria is the Ultra Raid in the Principality of Andorra in an inseparable team of two people in semi autonomy under the full moon. A 230 kilometer route with 20,000 meters of positive slope that will take the exit from Ordino and that will ascend a total of five peaks above 2,900 meters, as well as thirty-two peaks or hills between 2,500 and 2,9000 meters that make the test it develops at an average altitude of 2,200 meters.

The classic Ronda delsCims is the second longest test with a distance of 170 kilometers and a 13,500 meter positive drop. Here the participants will ascend a total of 16 peaks taking them to an average running altitude of 2,085 meters.

Mític, with 112 kilometers and 9,700 meters of positive slope, will give a complete tour of the entire Principality of Andorra. In this test, its participants will ascend to the Pico del Comapedrosa at 2,942 meters, as well as other emblematic peaks in the area. The most spectacular part of this test are, without a doubt, the grassy ridges that cross during the tour with impressive panoramic views.

Below the 100 kilometers is the Celestrail , with 83 kilometers and 5,000 meters of positive elevation gain . With departure from the center of Ordino on Friday at midnight, the hull is most spectacular. It is a fast race where its participants can find many sections to run.

Finally, Andorra Ultra Trail has an authentic alpine marathon, the MaratódelsCims . This test, with 42.5 kilometers and 3,400 meters of positive slope, will take its participants to a dream tour with magnificent landscapes and spectacular views, where they can discover the Northern Valleys. The sweet climb up a 4-kilometer wide track along the river allows you to warm up and stretch the group of runners before taking single-track trails to cover all types of terrain: forests, mineral areas, technical sections in rock, subalpine meadows ...
