Route[edit]

Route and elevation profile of Barcelona Trail Races 2016. 76 km and +2600m elevation gain.

The route of the Barcelona Trail Races is not characterised by large elevation gains, very steep slopes or technical difficulties. It is "a mountain race that has more long distances than impossible slopes and in which all the secrets that Collserola hides are revealed".[5] The hardness of the race is due to the softness of the ascents and descents that push the runners to a non-stop pace making it very fast: "here you come to run and not have a second to rest. A leg-breaker route".[5] Note that the pace of the winners in the long race is between 5 and 6 min/km.[6][7][8]

The fact that the race starts in the city of Barcelona, ″it’s only a few stops on the metro from the centre of Barcelona″,[9] and the characteristics of the route, make it a perfect option for those who want to run their first ultra mountain race: ″Thinking about where to do your first trail marathon? Go to Barcelona. If you are looking for a race where city meets trail, this is it″.[10]
