A tough race that will make the fans of challenges enjoy to the fullest and that, obviously, will lead them to step on the highest summit of Andorra.

Its first part runs along the 21 km Skyrace route, leaving Arinsal, going up to Pic de les Fonts (2,749 m), descending to the Refugi del Pla de l'Estany, ascending to Pic del Comapedrosa (2,942 m) and arriving at the Comapedrosa Refuge, after passing through the Estany Negre.

From here, return to Pic del Port Vell and Refugi de Comapedrosa, with the final descent to the finish line in Arinsal.

In 2021, the Ultra distance will be part of the Peaks Ultra Series, a circuit promoted by Ocisport on its 20th anniversary, which challenges to finish the Ultra Trail Barcelona, ​​the Ultra Els Bastions and the Ultra Comapedrosa. Three demanding races with 203 km, 13,500 m of positive elevation and about 20 mythical peaks of Catalonia and Andorra.
