With less than a month to go before it begins, the leading festival of the Pyrenees is starting to take shape and looking set to exceed all expectations. Places are being snapped up fast and the programme of festival activities is gradually beginning to come together.
The following few weeks are decisive and some races, such as the 26 km and the 65 km, have less than 50 places left. Beyond a shadow of doubt, the BUFF® Epic Trail is an event that trailrunners should not miss. Registration is set to close in the next few days, so don’t hang about if you want to secure a place.
The 65-km Joan Rojas Memorial and the 26-km race will take place on 13 July, whilst the 42-km race, part of the Migu Run Skyrunning World Series with Super Sky category and double points up for grabs, and the 12-km race will both be held on 14 July.
On the same day, it’s also the turn of the fourth round of the Scott Marathon Cup MBT, a race in which riders can discover magnificent high-mountain trails. PRO and OPEN cyclists can choose between two distances: 56 km and 2,200 m+, or 35 km and 1,600 m+.
BUFF® Mountain Festival kicks off on 12 July with a wide range of activities to ensure it’s a incredible weekend for all. Children will be catered for with the Natura Campus and the Mini Skyrace and other adventure activities such as canyoning, rafting, paragliding, via ferratas, Nordic walking and the orienteering workshop. At the same time, visitors will be able to make the most of the valley’s peace and quiet with different Yoga classes.
In addition to the festival’s extensive range of activities, there will also be various concerts and film screenings related to the mountains (The Rider and the Wolf and Déjame Vivir about Kilian Jornet). An opportunity to combine sport and culture, thanks to the Romanesque Centre of Vall de Boí.
The BUFF® Mountain Festival will take place against the incredible backdrop of Vall de Boí, a place with a unique charm that never disappoints.
