Zumaia Flysch Trail Hosts Decisive Long Race of the Valsir World Cup
Over 22km and 850m of climbing, Zumaia Flysch Trail Half Marathon first winds its way westward along the coast from Zumaia over short, punchy climbs. Travelling across the spectacular cliffs of the Basque Coast UNESCO Global Geopark, the race traces a line where the rich green of the hills meets the deep blue of the sea, the incredible geology adding an extra dimension to a race that is a real feast for the eyes. After 10km, the race takes a big swing inland and heads back towards Zumaia, taking the mirror of the outward course and crossing over itself several times as it loops out towards the coast and back inland.
