The joy of participating in the 'Rose of the North'      

On the night of November 30 to December 1, 2019 the "Rosa del Nord" Walk and Race was celebrated, in memory of people persecuted by the Catalan Pyrenees mountains seeking freedom during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39 and the second World War 1942-45.

In particular, we take a memory of an expedition in which St. Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer was visiting, who entered Andorra on the night of December 1 to 2, 1937.

La Rosa del Nord corresponds approximately to the last stage of this expedition: 22 km of course and 1,600 meters of positive accumulated difference, that goes from the Bellestar Agrarian School to Sant Julià de Lòria.

La Rosa del Nord consists of two modes: La Caminada (with about 20 participants) and La Raza (with about 80 participants). The race is for couples with three modalities: male, female and mixed.

The organization was run by Gerard Riart and Maria Segarra, from the Andorran company VSL Sports, and by Toni Cucurull, from the Association of Friends of the Camí de Pallerols de Rialb a Andorra. For the success of the celebration, more than 25 volunteers participated.

   Comment Realment son gent magnífica, que segueixen les mateixes petjades no sense dificultat, esforç, fred i obscuritat.
Els felicito, amb el desig que ells també trobin la llum que Sant Josemaría va trobar aquella terrible nit a Pallerols.
