Spanish Ultra Trail Championship

Last weekend (May 17th and 18th) we had the opportunity to attend one of the most celebrated events in the Spanish ultra-running calendar. The CSP 115 race, part of the Penyagolosa Trails would determine the 2014 mountain ultra distance champions. This is a national title given by the Spanish Mountain Sports Federation (FEDME).

The day before the race, runners had fun sharing their thoughts, taking photos and twittered #PenyagolosaTrails in the open square where bibs were picked up. Castellón typical fair weather helped to make the atmosphere even more festive. But the next day would be the moment of truth…

“I love running in places I’ve never been to before”, says Spanish ultrarunner Nύria Picas

If there was one thing I knew about Nύria Picas, it was that between her job as a firefighter, her family and her training is the fact that she clearly has very little time to attend media interviews. In order to make this easier for her, I did not hesitate for a moment in getting myself to Berga, a small town in Catalonia where she lives. On arrival, I telephoned Nύria to agree on a time for our meeting. She was of course in the middle of a training session; she answered breathlessly “I’ll call you back when I’m done”.

We agreed to meet at the outstanding fitness center where she trains. Lluís Soler would be taking some photographs to accompany the article. Nύria moments later appeared relaxed and smiling, with her partner and along with her children; a pair of lovely twins aged three who were ready for their swimming lesson and lots of running around!
