With this proposal we will help you discover the Magical Montserrat Mountain, located just 45 min. far from Barcelona city, through its narrow and intricate trails. Bear in mind that this is not a race, nor give prizes, nor medals, you will only get a good workout for your mind and for your legs.
We propose three different levels according to your expectations: • All routes proposed here depart and arrive at El Bruc Village. Other tailored itineraries can have different start/finish points. • The trails of Montserrat for medium and advanced proposals are narrow, rather technical roads with very steep sections and loose stones, which can be done uphill or downhill. Only the shortest proposal follows "easy" tracks. • Join the level that you think you can hold, based on your previous experience. To fully enjoy the activity, participants should have made distances and elevations similar to the proposed routes and be able to run at a constant pace the duration that is indicated in each case. • There is no water in the mountain. If you want to drink or eat something, you'll have to carry it all. And hidro-bag may be the best solution as it will keep your hands free. • Normal running clothes are sufficient, but a thin wind-stopper layer just in case can be a good idea. Of course, we can design specific tailored itineraries for those who prefer running alone (only with our guide), but for all the rest, here are our proposals:Easy / initiation:We will not leave the base of the mountain • Approximate time: 1h 20' • Km: 12.3 • Elevation change: 300 meters D + • Points of interest: Cova de la Arcada, Torrent del Clot del Tambor, farmhouses, olive crops, panoramic views of Montserrat.
