The Virtual Challenge of l’Olla

  • Join the Virtual Challenge of l’Olla! Hiking and trail running whenever you want and with whoever you want!

    Vall de Núria proposes you a different way to enjoy Olla de Núria race, an adventure for lovers of hiking and trail running. 


    This mountain race has 21 kilometers where you do not step on an inch of asphalt.72% of the route is over 2,700 meters. It will be hard, but it is worth it, since you will reach the Puigmal (2,913 meters), the most emblematic summit of the eastern Pyrenees.


    Do you need any more excuse? After ascending to Puigmal, the classic Olla descends from the Pic del Segre, 2,809 m, passing through the Coll de Finestrelles and the ascent continues to the peak of Finestrelles, 2,827 m, and following the Pic d'Eina. Then, after going through the Pic de Noufonts you will find the next step control. Finally, you will climb up to the Coll de Noucreus, 2,799m, and end up at Puig de Font Negre (2,727m) and Pic de l'Àliga (2,472m). The arrival will take place in the esplanade in front of the Sanctuary of Vall de Núria. The cumulative difference is 3,880 m.


    Why a virtual Challenge?
    A virtual career allows you total freedom: you can do it the day you want and at the time that suits you better, alone or with friends. In addition, it has all the attractions of a competition: you can compare yourself with the rest of the participants, but, above all, with yourself, since you can do it as many times as you want from the month of June until October 15.
