Ultra Cavalls del VentThe 2012 Ultra Cavalls del Vent will be run in the Spanish Pyrenees starting at 9 am local (Central European) time on Saturday, September 29 with some of the best ultrarunners in the world gathered on the start line. In this, the gnarliest of this weekend’s trifecta of top-level races, the likes of Kilian Jornet, Dakota Jones, Anna Frost, and Emelie Forsberg among many others will be battling for cash, Skyrunning overall and ultra series points, as well as glory.

While we’ve rarely, if ever hosted CoverItLive sessions for races at which an iRunFar editor is not present, we’ve decided to go ahead with this one thanks for the support of the local Catalan Koala’s Team, a Skyrunning- and beer-loving group that shares iRunFar’s spirit. We’ll be combining the Koalas’ coverage with other news sources (such as Talk Ultra and Salomon Spain), which should yield an entertaining mix of English, Spanish, and Catalan commentary!

Here are a couple resources to help you follow the race:

We’re not there, but we pay to use the CoverItLive platform and will buy the Koalas some Voll Damm (beer) the next time we’re together. Purchasing items from the iRunFar Store also supports our race coverage around the world.
