Our next World Cup races take place in Canfranc-Estación, a small mountain town in the province of Huesca in the Aragonese Pyrenees. The town is at 1,200 metres and all around are peaks of over 2,500 metres. The weather is pretty perfect for running in the summer, normally between 20 and 30 Celcius, and the Winter enjoys heavy snowfall. It also boasts hundreds of miles of trails marked out as part of their impressive Trail Space Project. An outstanding location for the next two Valsir Mountain Running World Cup races.
