Sport fans like enjoying the results of our physical efforts, both in training and in competitions where we take part in. But beyond these challenges, we love excursions, eating and drinking as well as sightseeing. The Priorat Marathon has born with the intention to join all this wishes.
All surroundings will be unique. The Priorat is a region to be lived with no rushes, encouraging you to enjoy all local products such as the wine and the olive oil, and to enjoy gastronomic pleasures, landscapes, the history, the culture and its people.
Both the start and arrival timeline will take place in the Modernist building of the Falset-Marçà Cooperative. It will take place inside the Cooperative, where runners will warm up by doing a quick visit through it. They will be able to see wineskin and the inside of the building. Once leaving it, let’s run!
The tour will pass through roads, tracks and paths and it will cross spectacular vineyards and landscapes.
Firstly, we will go to Bellmunt del Priorat, a well-known town because of its lead mines, which nowadays are available for tourists to visit.
The next town will be Gratallops, where the Priorat Wine Producer is located at.
Then, the tour will guide us towards Torroja del Priorat, a picturesque town where all the streets are paved with pebbles from the Siurana River.
The last town will be Porrera, well-known by the sundial route and both the continuous visits of the poet Miquel Martí i Pol and the wine cellar of the songwriter Lluís Llach.
Thanks to the collaboration of the Montsant DO and Priorat DOQ, provisioning points will offer local products and wine tasting. We also can enjoy the typical cultural and festive activities thanks to the city councils and associations of the mentioned towns.
As you can realize, the aim of this Marathon is to spend the best time possible, without taking into account the needed time to complete it. There will be enough time for everybody to complete the tour. So, the Marathon is devoted to all kind of participants, from elite sportsmen to amateur runners, excursionists or popular runners.
All those who participate in the competition will have the great feeling of having completed A MARATHON. This is why we encourage you to participate.
We wait for you.[separator top=”40″ style=”shadow”]
