The BUFF Epic Trail, now in its sixth edition and fully established among the major races in the international Skyrunning calendar, will be the centrepiece of the BUFF Mountain Festival.

Barruera and Vall de Boí will once more bring together outdoor sports enthusiasts on 12-14 July 2019 for the third edition of the festival.

More than 50 organised activities and the presence of participants from 20 different countries gave the second edition of the BUFF Mountain Festival and Vall de Boí great international projection. Rafting along the Noguera Pallaresa river, the mountain orientation workshop, tandem paragliding, the nature campuses, the Trek festival, canyoning, Nordic walking, the Fallas descent - which is a World Heritage Site - and guided yoga sessions were some of the most popular activities . Children's activities such as the Super3 Club Supercurses, the mini MTB, the Catalan climbing championship and the agility circuit were complete sell outs. There will be concerts and food trucks, along with much more to entertain the whole family. More than 15,000 people enjoyed the second edition, which established the event as a must for all lovers of mountain sports.

The Epic Trail will again be part of the ISF's Skyrunning World Series in the Sky discipline and the four events, over 12km, 26km, 42km and 65km formats, will not be changed. The Marathon Cup MTB will once again be one of the highlights of the festival.
