The BUFF® Epic Trail 68K is a 68km race with an elevation gain of roughly 4,889m and similar elevation loss; the route passes around the Aigüestortes National Park.

The Aigüestortes and Sant Maurici Lake National Park is one of Spain’s fourteen national parks and the only one in Catalonia. Located in the heart of the Pyrenees, adjoining the Ordesa and Mont Perdut Parks and the French Pyrenees, it povides an excellent picture of the main ecosystems in Catalonia’s high-mountain areas.

This one-of-a-kind protected natural area in southern Europe is famous by three thousand meters high peaks, rivers, canyons, wateralls and marshes that make you feel you in a land of water: there are 200 lakes of a variety of shapes and colors and a wide range of plants and animals fighting to survive in a harsh physical environment.
