Snow Running Sierra Nevada
An experience “Unlike Any Other”
Our mountain race over snow-covered terrain is celebrating its 10th anniversary
"Unlike Any Other"
Some may call us crazy… driven by our passion for snow and the Sierra Nevada, we wanted to take advantage of our mountain environment in a different way.
While researching various winter sporting events in other countries, it caught Pablo’s attention that during the winter months in colder regions of the US and Canada they adapted different types of race to take place on flat, snowy terrain.
We wanted to recreate this concept in the Sierra Nevada, but with certain variations which make this event “unlike any other”.
Snow, Sunset and Full Moon
The majority of the race, organised by us, takes place after dark, starting at sunset and traversing snowy terrain by the light of the full moon.
What’s more, we wanted to set our participants a short but intense challenge, hence the race comprises a 900m gradient over 12kms, climbing to an altitude of 3000 metres. It seemed perhaps we were crazy after all…
3 times Spanish Championship
In the event’s first edition in 2012 there were only 60 participants. The conditions were hellish: snow, hail, gales and electrical storms. We had to modify the route for safety reasons, but nevertheless, all the participants finished the race smiling from ear to ear.
Aside from that first year, places have filled in just a few days. We’ve now won the Championship Title in this category three times and in 2020, places for 900 participants filled yet again in a matter of days
In 2021 we’ll be celebrating 10-year anniversary
And we will be the Spanish Championship again
