Pierra Menta Été has become the summer version of the classic winter Pierra Menta, where trail running fans can enjoy the mountain in an exceptional setting. From 3-5 July the first edition was run in Arêches (France), a route consisting of three demanding stages:
1st Stage: 27.5 km and 2550 m D+
2nd Stage: 24 km and 2400 m D+
3rd Stage: 18 km and 1750 m D+
This first edition of the Pierra Menta Été, TwoNav and Merrell – the American sports footwear brand – participated with two male duos and one female. The results posted by our TwoNav & Merrell Trail Team runners were magnificent, with a resounding victory by our female Ragna Debats and Ester Hernández, and an excellent third place by Pere Aurell and Ferran Sampere.
Ragna Debats and Ester Hernandez left the other two-women teams far behind, winning in each of the stages by a significant margin. It was the consistency of Pere Aurell and Ferran Sampere – second in the first stage and third in the other two – that allowed them to take the third place slot on the podium. A big success for the TwoNav & Merrell Trail Team!
TwoNav is dedicated to offering a range of GPS products featuring the ultimate technologies for all athletes, whatever their sport might be. The brand’s firm commitment to trail running is expressed through its light yet powerful Ultra model, though the strong response to this little GPS has spurred our R&D team to begin work on the development of a GPS specifically for trail running.
