Ultra Pirineu 2015 logoSeemingly all of Spain’s top ultrarunners as well as plenty of strong runners from abroad will be racing the Ultra Pirineu in Catalunya this weekend. The 110-kilometer (68-mile) race climbs 6,800m (22,000′) as runners complete the stunning Cavalls del Vent track along with spurs to bucolic Cerdanya mid-race and the ancient village of Bagà for the start and finish. We’ll be livecasting the event on iRunFar’s Twitter feed as well as combining news resources in a live coverage feed below. We also hope to share live video coverage from the course on this page. (Estaremos transmitiendo el evento En Vivo a través del Twitter de iRunFarES también.)

The race begins at 7 a.m. CEST on Saturday morning, which is 11 p.m. MDT Friday night in the US. The winner is expected to finish in 11 to 12 hours. Excellent weather is forecast for the race.
