Mountains Of Spain: Video Guadarrama National Park´s Ultra trail. Gran Trail Peñalara 2013

Among the mountains of Spain, the latest addition to the National Park network has been in 2013 with the creation of the new Guadarrama National Park. Its highest summit is Peñalara at 2.430 meters and it covers one of the most importante historic areas for climbing, mountaneering, skiing and trailrunning in Spain. Since 2010 the GRAN TRAIL PEÑALARA is the ultra trail  that offers three options to circumvalate most of the park, (60k-80k-110k) including the climb to its two most iconic mountains: Peñalara and La Maliciosa (2.231m) This is the 2013 edition official video for those races.

RACE REPORT BY CASEY MORGAN. (Scotland)

As reflected in the video, this 2013 one of the leading runners came from Scotland. Caey Morgan had a severe fall at km15 with a cut to his knee, but was then able to get over it and not only get back to the race but also lead it alone consistently until km90 where the cut finally forced him to abandon. This is his personal race report on the experience, most recommended.
