Type of marking

All races routes will be marked from start to end with the same type of marks. You will find specific signals where the different routes split, in these places you will also find people from the organization that will indicate you the right path.

1. The routes of the races will be marked in three ways:

a. With specific and personal tape Ultratrail Collserola or Barcelona TrailRaces (see pics below). The markings of route sections that will be run at night will get some reflective tape. At sections that there is no possibility of getting lost (without crossing roads or deviations) the distance between markings will be higher.

b. With ephemeral painting on the ground; arrows pointing the right route and/or “X” marking a wrong route.

2. Throughout the race you will find people from the organization that will help you in conflicting junctions and important crossroads.

Keep in mind that the area is frequented by lots of people and markings can disappear. There will be marshals along the entire route to ensure that all times the race is well marked or even remarked if needed. But you can not forget that it is a mountain race and you should be aware in changing directions.

The organization will provide a map to all runners.
