Penyagolosa Trails® HG®
16 October, 2021
The Natural Park of Penyagolosa is a cultural and geographical benchmark of the Valencian Community. Its highest peak, 1,814 meters above sea level, is the highest peak of Castellón and the second highest in the region. In its heart rises the Sant Joan de Penyagolosa Hermitage (impressive gothic building and spiritual center of the massif).
The Penyagolosa Trails HG crosses the Penyagolosa massif winding through its mountains, valleys, trails, fields or paths of ancient millennial pilgrimages which allowed people that lived in the area to communicate and meet with people of the City of Castellón, 40 meters above sea level.
A continuous ascent takes us to more than 1,300 meters in the Sant Joan de Penyagolosa Hermitge, where the finish line is. Runners will have to complete the race in semi-autonomy and the itinerary runs through several municipalities in the province of Castellón, crossing the towns of Castellón, Borriol, Vilafamés, Les Useres, Lucena, Atzeneta Del Maestrat, Culla, Vistabella Del Maestrat, Xodos and Villahermosa Del Rio.
