Pyrenees Stage Run

 

Pyrenees Stage Run

We believe that there are many trail running races today as a result of the growing interest in the sport all over the world. We know that the calendar is saturated with them, but we also firmly think that we need a stage race in the Pyrenees. For people from abroad, this race is a great opportunity to discover the Pyrenees and then spend a little holiday in Barcelona.

The concept that we present is equivalent to the Transalpine-Run, but adapted to the needs of our region and what we can do in a project that is just starting. The Pyrenees Stage Run, a 7 stage race beginning in Ribes de Freser and finishing in Salardú with two stages in Andorra, offers the possibility to cross a section of the Pyrenees following the classic GR11 and going through places that you will never forget. In addition, we want all participants to be part of the adventure and each day we will have dinner altogether and organize an award ceremony of the day, a briefing of the next stage and a presentation of the photos and videos of the day. We will offer two accommodation options, one for the adventurous, at campsites (tent) or in sport halls, and another in comfortable hotels.

When we say that we want it to be an adventure, we also refer to the route. First of all, the participation in the PSR will be in teams (2 or 3 runners), a factor that we consider very important both in terms of safety and because we believe that sharing the adventure is much more valuable than doing it solo. This is also something which allows us to offer a different experience to the runners. On the other hand, the runners will need to follow the track using a GPS (one per team; hiring is possible for those who need it), but the route will also be marked both with ribbons and the classical marks of the GR11.

We believe in this project because a stage race is an adventure where fellowship and shared moments are accentuated far beyond the competition, giving us the opportunity to meet other runners across the world, be told amazing stories or hear about new races to run…; where the visited villages and their inhabitants are part of the experience and where volunteers establish a unique relationship with the runners. As organizers, for us the race represents a new kind of challenge as the preparation and race management (for 7 days!) is very different than in a one-day ultra race.

We hope that you are as excited as we are and we encourage you to participate in the Pyrenees Stage Run! We’re waiting for you!

One year ago Ainhoa and me started talking about our aims and dreams in the mountains. We were competing and having fun either in local or worldwide races, but we wanted something else, another kind of mountain experience we won't never forget.
