THE GREAT CATALONIA TRAIL WILL OPEN THE LONG DISTANCE CATALAN CALENDAR 2021

Probably the 6 most affordable ITRA points in the world

The Gran Trail Catalunya will be the first long-distance race to be held in Catalan territory in 2021. Tarragona will be the international venue for trail running from 5 to 7 March and will have about 100 miles as the main event with a positive gradient of 4685mts. for the first time in the city.

The exit located at sea level, will run its first meters through a unique place such as the long beach, located on the golden coast. The route will extend to the Alt Camp and Baix Penedès, to go through the Montmell mountain range and the Alt Gaià castles before returning to Cala Romana.

Probably the 6 most affordable ITRA points in the world.

The positive difference in level will be 4685 meters, below the average of the tests in this category and which award 6 ITRA points to runners who cross the finish line. Without a doubt one of the best options to return to competition in this 2021, also a good option to debut in the long distance.

El Catllar, Salomó and Vilabella will be the first towns to cross the Gran Trail Catalunya, precisely in this last town will be located the first base of life and runners will accumulate on their legs, the first marathon, which will have passed largely on tracks and paths with a slight positive slope.

From Montferri and with a few hours accumulated, the gladiators will face what will probably be the most demanding kilometers of the whole route, the Juncosa del Montmell and the Coll de la Torreta, near the highest point and around of 1000 meters above sea level. From here we start a long run with a favorable gradient that will take us through Querol and Aiguamúrcia, to finally reach the life base of Vilabella again with 130 kilometers accumulated.

The last section of the test passes through a terrain with little accumulated unevenness and that will take you to the finish line through small ascents and descents that will seem eternal to you with fatigue and fatigue. You are about to overcome a 160km leg-breaking route. It's time to fool yourself, think positive and conquer the beach again, now yes, probably with a sun that will make you enjoy some views and eternal glory, The Ultra Trail of Tarragona is yours.
