IVth edition Olla Vertical

The Olla Vertical is a sister race of the Clàssica Olla de Núria. It was organised for the first time in 2016 and it is becoming an important race in the calendar of vertical races.

This 4th edition will be a part of Copa Catalana de Curses Verticals de la FEEC and of the circuit PIRINEU VERTICAL (see circuit website), it will be the last race of this season! The runners will have to fight to get a good overall result.

It departs from Santuari de Núria (1960m) and reaches the highest point of the valley, Puigmal (2909m). after 3,78kms and 986m of positive elevation gain. Few kilometers and a big elevation gain mean that it is a vertical race with strong emotions.

L’Olla Vertical was created with the aim of becoming an international race that defents and vindicates the role of Catalan sport and of Catalonia in the world. It is open to all participants.

Experience Vall de Núria! Do not miss it! We are waiting for you!
