The Marathon of the Tucas joins the shelters of Estós and Ángel Orús through tracks and trails that surround the famous Tucas de Ixeia (2 837 m), within the framework of a superb Pyrenees. Beginning in the town of Benasque, the route ascends through the GR 11 to the Estós refuge, from which it continues to visit the spectacular ibis of Batisielles, cross the Plana hill (2 708 m) and reach the next point of control, located in the refuge of Ángel Orús. From here, you descend through the valley of Eriste / the Ball de Grist, before the imposing waterfall of the Espigantosa, to return to Benasque through the towns of Eriste, Anciles and Cerler.
