The children of Val d’Aran create the mascot of HOKA Val d’Aran by UTMB®

Meet Vop, the Mascot of HOKA Val d’Aran by UTMB®!

This cheerful fox, created by Martina L., a 5th grade student from Escola Ruda de Salardú , was the winning design of the Pet Drawing Contest organised by HOKA Val d’Aran by UTMB®.

Over several weeks, 4th, 5th and 6th grade students from all the schools in Val d’Aran (Les, Bossòst, Vielha, Es Bòrdes, and Naut Aran) have worked hard to draw what they believe should be the mascot of the event.

All the submitted works stood out for their creativity and originality, but, above all, for the enthusiasm put into them. Ruth D. and Arturo del O., from the Escòla Garona of Vielha, Clàudia B., from the Escòla Sant Roc of Bossòst, and Ferial B., from the Escòla Alejandro Casona of Les were the finalists of the contest, which Martina finally won.

Once the design had been selected, the fox was named. On this occasion, all the students from the Valley participated, without age limits. The winning name was Vop, which in Aranese means Fox, proposed by Júlia Madrid from the Escòla Sant Roc of Bossòst.
