CAMINS D’HÈR – CDH 105 KM 6.500M D+ | 6.200M D-
Camins d’Hèr translates as Iron Roads. A tour of the wildest and highest parts of the Val d’Aran. 105 km with two very different areas: one, where the past and the hardness of the mountain take center stage, and another, where the water takes over presenting itself under different forms of lakes, waterfalls and rivers. The old mining past of the Valley is discovered in this spectacular race, which crosses tunnels and mines at the foot of the imposing Mauberme.
The Basque Aritz Egea is one of the runners who will take the start early in the morning (07:30h) on Friday, July 9 in Les: the Gipuzkoan, accustomed to shorter distances, has this year the objective of testing himself in the ultra-distance.
HIGHLIGHT: Finishers get direct access – without a draw – guarantee access to the CCC®, TDS® or OCC 2022 (or 2023 if there are not enough places available in 2022), provided they have a sufficient number of ITRA points.
