We know 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 believe 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 Pyrenees Stage Run is a 7-day trail-running stage race in the Pyrenees, a wild and mountainous range next to Barcelona. The route runs by the GR11 route with two stages in Andorra and goes through landscapes and picturesque towns that you will never forget.
Signing up for PSR means not having to worry about a thing besides running and enjoying the experience. In addition to a complete runner’s goodies bag, the marking of the route and the food stations; the registration also includes all the high-quality photos, recovery massage at the end of each stage, live GPS tracking, transport of the luggage between stages, runner’s guide, GPS tracks of the route, medical service and accident insurance.
Participation in the PSR will be in teams (2 or 3 runners). To go safely to the mountains you always have to go with someone else, but the important thing is that sharing an adventure of these dimensions is much more intense and exciting than solo. If you don’t have a partner to participate, take a look and sign up at our section of those looking for a partner to run the PSR!
The route has 220km and 15000m of positive elevation, divided into 7 stages, passing through Andorra and crossing 5 Natural Parks along the route. The stages have an approximate distance of 30km and 2000m elevation. The time limits allow walking the uphills and jogging the downs. It is a route with a variety of terrains: forestry roads, paths, single trails, forests and some technical and rocky sections in the high mountains that will delight the most adventurous.
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!
