What is Gorbeia Suzien?

Gorbeia suzien is an initiative created by a group of people who love nature and trail running. We all have put together our efforts and created Suzien Mendi Kluba in order to make our dream true.
Why Gorbeia and its surroundings? Because we are aware of the astonishing and outstanding landscape of where we live and we would like to share it with you.

The Gorbeia Natural Park is located in the South East of Biscay (Basque Country). The Gorbeia Mountain (1,481 m) is the highest point of this beautiful area and it became the border between Araba and Biscay.

Our race starts in the town Zeanuri and finishes there, after the course leads you toward some summits. Taking into account the area, Zeanuri is the 3rd biggest town in Biscay; however, the population is not very high, about 1,300 inhabitants. The day of the race breaks the monotony and gets full of joy, so there is no lack of festive ambiance.

About Us

Gorbeia Suzien is a way to the two main passions of a group of friends: sports and mountain. Our main goal is to show our valley’s treasure from a humble point of view and respecting our natural environment. Gorbeia Suzien is more than just a race.

The town of Zeanuri


Zeanuri is a small town located in the hillsides of the Gorbeia Mountain. In spite of being one of the largest towns in Biscay, it has only 1,300 inhabitants. As we are not that many people, we all know each other and we are very participative in all the different activities that take place in our town. And that’s not all; the whole town is always ready to help in everything they can.

The race Gorbeia Suzien is a great example of that. It would be impossible to organize a race like this one without the participation and the assistance of the people of Zeanuri. Aside from all the help we have been receiving during the previous months, during the weekend of the race there are more than 150 volunteers in the town and in the mountain, ready to lend a hand to the participants and to make this race special.

Besides taking all what has been said into account, we would like to add that the day of the race Zeanuri is a complete festival where visitants and locals have fun together in a great atmosphere while having in mind the idea of enjoying the mountains and sports.
