Our Host Town: Canillo, Andorra

Canillo is a town of a little less than 5,000 people located in the middle of Andorra, in the Pyrenees mountains. Its parish church, dating back to the 12th century, is considered the spiritual and religious center of the Andorran community. Although Canillo draws much of its income from tourism now, it still has significant livestock and agricultural activities, too.

Andorra is a small, independent country right on the border between Spain and France. It was formed by a charter in 1278 and has remained an independent microstate ever since. It’s the sixth-smallest nation in Europe, with a population of just over 77,000 people. Although the official language is Catalan, you can also commonly find people who speak Spanish, Portuguese, and French. We will arrange for guides and hosts who speak English, too.

We picked Canillo as the location for our 2018 race because of its picturesque location, hospitable community, and great mountain trails. Nobody can be bored running through the Pyrenees, with the steep changes in terrain and breath-taking views. We’re sure you will love your experience racing here, too.
