'Carrera Legua'


If you like challenges, do not miss this singular race, which has become a popular tradition. It involves covering the 6,040 metres between Lekunberri and a caserío (Basque farmhouse) in Azpirotz. In 1960 "Txikito" de Arruitz set a record of 18 minutes 57 seconds, and held it for over 50 years.
Initially, the heavy bets placed by the local people were the strongest motivation to run. Nowadays, you only have to challenge your amour propre and let yourself be swept along by the pleasure of enjoying sport among the beautiful landscapes of the Valley of Larraun.
