TORN DERA VAL D’ARAN – VDA

VDA is the Val d’Aran by UTMB’s oldest sister. A extremely demanding race of 165km and more than 10.500 metres of ascent. Starting at Val d’Aran’s capital, Vielha, we will follow Nere’s riverbank until Pontet viewpoint. From here, starts a walk through Val d’Horno up to Montpius peak, the first 2.000 m of ascent of the race. The uphill goes by a sand track and mountain trails.
Once you reach Montpius peak, there is a downhill to Santet de Casau where we start another trail up to Letassi peak which will offer us an incredible ridge until we reach Vielha’s iconic mountain, the Montcorbison. From here, we will enjoy a panoramic view of Baqueira Beret ski resort, having Vielha under our feet.
From this point, we will run along a difficult downhill until we reach Artiga de Lin, going through Santet de Gausac. This stretch will be the first challenge for runner’s legs.
Once we are at the bottom, we will get into “Camino del Agua” which will surprise us with a fantasy landscape, going through “Uelhs deth Joèu” and arriving to Pla de la Artiga. Here we will find the first important aid station where you can recharge, as the second vertical kilometre is coming up, heading to Port de la Picada.
At Pas de la Escaleta, towards Escaleta’s peak, starts a night ridge through the border limits of Val d’Aran, going across Polainèr peak to Aubàs peak and finally running downhill to Coth de Baretja until Bossòst, where we will find the second great aid station. From this point to Les, the track is flat and comfortable for running, a well-deserved rest for our legs.
