Pyrenees Stage Run
The stage race of the Pyrenees
The Pyrenees Stage Run is a 7 day trail-running stage race in the Pyrenees, a wild and mountainous range next to Barcelona. The route runs by the GR11 route with two stages in Andorra and going through landscapes and picturesque towns that you will never forget. An adventure where fellowship and shared moments are accentuated far beyond the competition, giving us the opportunity to meet other runners across the world, be told amazing stories and hear about new races to run. A challenge where the visited villages and their inhabitants are part of the experience and where volunteers establish a unique relationship with the runners.
The route has 240km and 15000m of positive elevation, divided into 7 stages, passing through Andorra and crossing 5 Natural Parks along the route. The stages have an approximate distance of 35km and 2200m uphill and the time limits allow to finish them walking on the uphills and jogging on the flat and downhills. It is a route with a variety of terrains: forestry roads, paths, single trails, forests and some technical and rocky sections in the high mountains that will delight the most adventurous.
Signing up for PSR means not having to worry about a thing and just thinking about running and enjoying the experience. In addition to a complete runner’s goodies bag, the marking of the route and the food stations; the registration also includes all the high-quality photos, recovery massage at the end of each stage, live GPS tracking, transport of the luggage between stages, runner’s guide, GPS tracks of the route, medical service and accident insurance are some of the the many services offered by the PSR.
We offer two registration options: the “Basic”, without accommodation but with the dinner and all other services included (for those who want to organize the accommodation by themselves) and the “Full Experience” a complete package with hotel accommodation with dinner and breakfast included. We want all participants to be part of the adventure and each day we will have dinner altogether and organize an award ceremony of the day, a briefing of the next stage and a presentation of the photos and videos of the day.
How to get there
Getting to the start of the Pyrenees Stage Run located in Ribes de Freser is very easy whether you come by plane, train or car. Barcelona airport is connected to Ribes de Freser by train in approximately three hours. To go back from the finish in Salardú we offer two coaches, one to return directly to Barcelona (airport and city) and one to return to the start of the race, in Ribes de Freser. If you want to know all the possibilities click on the link below.
The participation in the PSR will be in teams (2 or 3 runners). To go safely to the mountains you always have to go with someone else, but the important thing is that sharing an adventure of these dimensions is much more intense and exciting than solo. If you don’t have a partner to participate, take a look and sign up at our section of those looking for a partner to run the PSR!
