Climb the highest mountain in Andorra! The Comapedrosa Sky Race will continue to be the World Cup, the Skyrunning festival, since it will once again be attended by the best runners of the moment.

The test consists of two long climbs on a very technical high mountain terrain. The first ascent is up to 2,942 meters of altitude and the second has as its icing on the roof of Andorra, the Comapedrosa with its 2,972 meters . It will be the ideal environment to experience the whole essence of Skyrunning with beautiful views of the Valls del Comapedrosa Natural Park and spectacular landscapes.

The test program will be completed with the SkyRace Arinsal , which will take all those who want to start Skyrunning to the high mountains.

The SkyRace Comapedrosa will once again place Comú de la Massana and Andorra as the world capital of mountain sports, a country that is consecrated by organizing sporting events with the greatest international impact.

Travel

Skyrace Comapedrosa

The first section of the race is paved until you reach the path that will take us to the Coll de les Cases (1958m), a very straight path that runs through a heavily wooded area, from which point the runners will find a ridge section with a lot of height and little vegetation, until reaching Pic de les Fonts (2748m). At this point we will go down to Pla de l'Estany where we will find a small hut.

Being in the middle of the Andorran mountains, from this point a beautiful climb begins, an authentic vertical wall of more than 1000m of positive difference in about 2Km of distance without marked path and that will take us to the Comapedrosa Summit (2,942m) .

The descent is along the traditional path passing through the Estany Negre and the Comapedrosa refuge , until reaching Arinsal again.

This race scores for the Skyrunner® World Series and Skyrunner® National Series Spain-Andorra.
