Participants in the Vall de Boí Epic Trail and their families will also be able to enjoy several activities such as canyoning, paragliding, mountain biking, Nordic walking, yoga, climbing, children’s activities, musical performances or the exhibition space.
And it is that since the organization of the Garmin Mountain Festival Vall de Boí by BUFF® is already working, together with the City Council of Vall de Boí, to offer a great festival with activities for everyone, which will maintain its reference point in the village of Barruera with a significant impact on the whole valley.
Epic Trail: four distances, new tracks
The Garmin Epic Trail Vall de Boí by BUFF® once again challenges to overcome the technical terrain of this area of the Lleida Pyrenees, very close to the Aigüestortes and Estany de Sant Maurici National Park. And here there will also be very relevant news, since in 2022 the circuits are completely renewed, thus allowing participants to discover new trails, views, peaks and ridges.
The detailed tracks will be announced soon but they will have, as usual, demanding climbs, technical sections and fast descents that will delight lovers of this sport, being able to choose between four distances: 55 km with 4,100 m+, 42 km with 3,300 m+, 23 km with 1,800 m+ and, finally, 12 km with 460 m+.
Last July, the Epic Trail Vall de Boí hosted the Skyrunning World Championships of the International Skyrunning Federation (ISF), bringing together nearly 4,000 athletes including members of the international delegations that competed for the medals and participants in the Open modality.
