As a result of the preventive actions against COVID-19 (better known as coronavirus), the BUFF Epic Trail test has had to modify its date, and postpone the event until September 4/6.

________________________________________________________________________

BUFF® Epic Trail Vall de Boí : Demanding 68km running race and more than 10,000 meters of accumulated elevation gain that participants must complete in less than 17 hours; It consists of a circular route through the peripheral area of the National Park and the mountains that surround the Boí Taüll ski resort, the highest in the Pyrenees. A very high level competition only suitable for the most physically prepared mountain runners.

With departure and arrival in the town of Barruera, this competition is not a walk, the cutting times will be strict.

The Aigüestortes and San Mauricio Lake National Park is one of the fourteen national parks in Spain and the only one in Catalonia. Located in the heart of the Pyrenees, together with the Ordesa and Monte Perdido parks and the French Pyrenees parks, it is an excellent representation of the main ecosystems that we can discover in the high mountains.

Summits that exceed three thousand meters in height; rivers, ravines, waterfalls and swamps that truly make us feel the land of water; more than 200 ponds of different shapes and colors, and a great diversity of animal and plant species that struggle to survive in a rigorous physical environment give life to this unique protected natural space in southern Europe.
