Harrogate Runners in Mountain Challenge

Harrogate International Partnerships has entered a team of eight fell-runners into the prestigious Aneto Trail races which will take place over the weekend of 9th-10th July in our twin town of Bagnères de Luchon.

The Aneto Trail is the highlight of the local trail running calendar and takes its name from the highest mountain in the Pyrenees. There are many trails that criss-cross the mountains above Luchon set against a background of stunning scenery. As one tourist site for the area says, “the spectacular views are just as likely as the steep climbs to take your breath away.”

Members of the Harrogate team have entered most of the races which range from 10km to a challenging 85km. The latter is appropriately called the ‘Ultra’ and starts at 5am!

Harrogate will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its partnership with Luchon in 2023.
