ANDORRA ULTRA TRAIL VALLNORD 2017

ANDORRA ULTRA TRAIL VALLNORD 2017

Von 04/07/2017 bis 09/07/2017

Vallnord, ( Ordino )


The 9th edition of the Andorra Ultra Trail Vallnord will be held from 4 to 9 July 2017.


The Andorra Ultra Trail Vallnord is well positioned on the international stage of mountain races. Evidence of the acceptance it has achieved is illustrated by the number of nationalities (over forty) that make up the multitude of registrations for the various trials held over the weekend.

In its nineth edition, Andorra Ultra Trail Vallnord 2017 presents important new features, such as a new race that has been baptised “Eufòria”.  The statistics for this new challenge are thrilling: 233 km in distance and 20,000 m difference in ascent. It is an extreme resistance trial with participants taking part in pairs, and there will be no markings or refreshment points. Without a shadow of a doubt, “Euforia” is only within reach of the more experienced and prepared athletes.

The Andorra Ultra Trail Vallnord 2017 program is completed with well-known races, which allow the Principality to be discovered from the highest peaks and over trails passing through the natural parks of the Comapedrosa, Sorteny and Madriu valleys (declared World Heritage by UNESCO). These are the Ronda dels Cims (170 km with 13,500 m in elevation gain/loss). La Mític (112 km with 9,700 m in elevation gain/loss); Celestrail (83 km with 5,000 m in elevation gain/loss). La Marató dels Cims (42,5 km with 3,000 m in elevation gain/loss) and Solidaritrail (10 km with 750 m in elevation gain/loss).

Year after year, runners from across the globe make their dreams come true at the Andorra Ultra Trail Vallnord: experience mountain magic at around 3,000 meters.
