16 trail running tracks in 35 km
Basques have a great passion for the mountains, especially in Goierri where two of the most important races in the trail running circles take place: Zegama-Aizkorri Marathon and Ehunmilak Ultra-trail race (together with G2H and Marimurumendi Marathon, on the same weekend).
The Euskal Herria Trail Station has two main entrances:
· If you go from Abaltzisketa, cross Aralar Natural Park
· If you go from Zegama, cross Aizkorri-Aratz Natural Park. The mountain range in the shape of a wall separates Guipúzcoa and Álava, and is a true point of reference in mountaineering. Its cultural heritage includes dolmens, ancestral caves, and medieval roads.
There are 16 tracks along both natural parks and the two entrances are connected by a 35 km route.
The station has training circuits that closely replicate the vertical distance to get to Aizkorri and Txindoki, as well as Zegama-Aizkorri Marathon’s whole journey and part of Ehunmillak’s ultratrail. Each facility has showers, changing rooms, and gym areas to warm up and to do exercises to help with training.
There is also specialised staff -elite athletes included- to help you out!
Although the itineraries are signposted, it is mandatory to use GPS while you perform the routes. Inclement weather makes some areas very challenging even for local runners!
