EDP DesafiOSOmiedo is a trail race like few others . In the town of Pola de Somiedo there is a double race to choose from: UTDS (UtraTrail DesafiOSOmiedo) with 83 kilometers and 10,300 meters of positive slope or MDS (DesafiOSOmiedo Marathon) with 47 kilometers and 5,820 meters of positive slope. As both tests are part of the iTRA and have been assigned 4 points (UTDS) and 3 (MDS) in this edition, both are scored for the UltraTrail du Mont-Blanc. Both modalities have limited places (400 each), of which 300 will be open by lottery among all the pre-registered for the UTDS modality and 350 will be for MDS. At the end of the test, for those who still have enough energy, a great concert will be held to celebrate the achievement of all the athletes who have managed to achieve the feat of finishing any of the trails.

The corners of Somiedo, in addition, hide spectacular landscapes such as the Somiedo Natural Park that extends through five valleys and is considered the first Natural Park declared in Asturias.

Do you dare before such a challenge?
