The 5th edition of the BTR is now finished, at the time when we surprisingly see traces of snow and feel an icy wind in the hills of Collserola. From here the city of Barcelona looks distant but still it seems that you can dominate the city, trapped between the sea and the mountains. Anyway, if you just turn and look the oposite direction, towards the hills, something pushes you to enter the paths and into the woods. Then you realize how wonderful this mountain range is, still surrounded by a metropolitan area that has not managed to devour it.
Running in these paths is a privilege for those who live in the city, but it is also a privilege for all those who come to participate in the race from abroad. Protect and preserve this park is our obligation, the same way it is a right to enjoy it. And we cannot let them take the right away.
We are working so that the sixth edition in 2018 will continue to test your legs, working on the illusion to offer an affordable ultra trail running race, without no other pretension that to prove yourself. This year, the faithful who have trusted us during all these years will have a reward.
Respect the mountain, run and enjoy it
