The race of the lakes

The PDA is a race unlike any other.

Its 55 kilometres of mountain with 3,300 metres of positive difference in altitude and 3,700 metres of negative difference in altitude await you in this adventure through the mountains of Naut Aran. A race that reaches almost 2,600 metres, where the "Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici" National Park takes centre stage. A fast but very demanding race.
