Driven by the will and specific desire of a group of athletes, who in a way wanted to transcribe and share the great careers of adventure, companionship and sacrifice in which they had participated in other countries in their territory; in this natural paradise of the Sierra and the Canyons of Guara. It is made through the mountains adjacent to the town of Alquézar (Huesca), and runs along the spectacular mountain roads and trails of the Cañones and Sierra de Guara Natural Park. A unique landscape in the world that speaks for itself. The maximum time to complete it is 25 hours; Enough time to finish walking at a walking pace with brief stops.
With the desire to evolve, perfect ourselves and optimize this spectacular mountain race in Guara, in 2013, we decided to make a third 50km route called the Long Trail Guara Somontano . A horseback ride between the Trail and the Ultra-Trail®, which runs along the spectacular mountain roads and trails of the Cañones and Sierra de Guara Natural Park along a section of the Ultra trail.
The route combines fast zones with technical zones, shares a greater section with the Ultra route, leaving figures of 52 km. and approximately 3000 meters of positive slope. This route respects much more the circular logic that is tried to give the route, sharing almost in its entirety the Ultra route and using a new and spectacular mountain path to communicate both slopes of the Sierra.
A route for all those who seek to make the leap into ultra distance in a more progressive way, or simply as a condition of sheltering a range of possibilities for all the particularities, types of runner or desires, in a mountain race. Always being aware of the hardness that this new journey entails.
