The Foundation for Medicine & Science in Ultra-Endurance Sports, thanks to Penyagolosa Trails HG donation, offers CSP and MiM health bibs. This will help to finance investigations and studies linked with ultra resistance sports and encourage its dissemination. From today on it is possible to collaborate with this initiative.
For Penyagolosa Trails HG, athlete’s health is a priority. The organization goes to great lengths to guaranty the security and the runner’s medical monitoring. To that end, the organization carries out numerous communication and prevention actions in health care issues.

A pioneer project in national level with few international references that emerged with the aim of deepen in long distance races from the health point of view. The CSP has been a test bed to study the runner’s health improvements through psychological factors, training habits, or physical parameters, as well as the weight evolution, blood pressure, blood tests, etc.
Because investigation must be at the service of this discipline as a whole, Penyagolosa Trails HG supports the new “Foundation for Medicine & Science in Ultra-Endurance Sports“. This organism has a purpose obtain funding for global investigation projects linked to ultra resistance sports and promote the dissemination of the results achieved. The interest of a foundation to finance the investigation is to protect itself from any conflict of interest thanks to the independence created between the donors and the investigation projects.
