Trail Running in the Basque Country: Video Mugalaris tribe from Irun, running at Erlaitz
Trail running in the Basque Country is a particularly strong movement. Both the quantity and the quality of the runners from this region are well known over Spain. But what is first and foremost admired from the Basque people all over Spain are its “aficionados”
No trail runner plodding through the mud in these northen valleys will ever feel alone. The atmosphere at the toughest spots at the Zegama Alpine Marathon might make even the Tour de France pale by comparison. Its a tradition and a shared passion that local groups like these 40 mugalaris from Irun keep growing and growing.
Now come with us to the beatiful natural park at Erlaitz, let us all talk, run, laugh and share a bit of these trails as the mugalaris run around their mountains once more.
