TRAIL 100 ANDORRA: TRAIL 100 ANDORRA DEBUTS
WITH FOUR MOUNTAIN RACES (24-27JUN).
The Andorra Multisport Festival, by Ironman, is a key bet by Andorrra Turismo for 2021. The sports mega-event will have up to 1.5Mill. € subsidy from the Andorra Government. And thanks to this, the leading multinational in the endurance sports business this year will launch five events that seek to offer the highest level of sport for July 2021: Ultra trail, MTB, Triathlon 70.3. Winter Triathlon and Road Cycling.
The resignation of Cims Magiques a few months ago to continue organizing Andorra Ultra Trail, thus gives way to Ironman. The multinational thus adds Trail 100 Andorra to its other well-known ultras such as: Ultra Trail Australia, Tarawera and Mozart 100.
Not only that, because last 6MAY we already saw how Ironman raised his bet for the mountain with the joint launch of the new UTMB World Series that we already explained here. We review below for a moment the video of the official presentation of this new world project … and then let’s go to Ordino to better understand those four races and how to register for its inaugural edition.

Being the country where adventure and competition come together, there are many sporting events that have hosted these impressive mountains.
