A slightly different version of the 84km route, starting and finishing at Bagà, was used for a race in 2010-2012.  The male and female course records, set in 2012, are Kilian Jornet (8h42m23s) and Nuria Picas (10h34m38s).  Races of different distances have been held in other years (now known as Ultra Pirineu):  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_Pirineu  There is also a non-competitive event "Open Cavalls del Vent" (https://www.cavallsdelvent.com/en/eventos/open-84/) doing the route.
