A legend of 185KM
Download the track here. (kmz for google earth)
Can you imagine waking up, preparing your backpack, putting on your trainers and running 185 km around the Island of Menorca, with a cumulative elevation gain of 3,500 metres? This is the what awaits you in the Trail Menorca Camí de Cavalls, one of the longest Trail races in Europe and one of the most attractive challenges you can face today.
This race will not leave anyone feeling indifferent. Anyone who decides to sign up, train and, of course, set off from the starting point in Ciutadella, immediately secures their status as a #LEGEND.
Due to the curfew situation, we have had to divide the test into two stages. The first will start at 6 am on Friday from the Camino de sa Farola car park. You will have 17 hours to finish it and arrive at the Maó maritime station. All those who think that they do not arrive at the cut-off time will be able to retire to the Es Grau refreshment station, where a bus will pick you up.
The second stage will start at 6am on Saturday in Es Castell and you will also have 5pm to complete the journey to Ciutadella. The transfer bus will leave at 4:45. Those who leave the race in Es Grau the day before will be able to start, but will no longer be able to obtain the general classification.
In the same way as the day before, those who do not arrive at Cape Artrutx on time may abandon the test.
Throughout the tour there will be a bus service to pick up all those who decide to withdraw at a refreshment station
What lies ahead? A course that hugs the coastline and involves 185 km of beaches, rocky terrain, road, track…and suffering. The island of Menorca is not flat by any stretch of the imagination. Camí de Cavalls will severely punish anyone who underestimates it. You will encounter some breathtakingly beautiful places but, on the flip side, you will also tackle a number of stretches which will take a severe toll on your legs.
Binimetl·là, Cavalleria, Favàritx, S’Hort des Lleó, the Natural Park of s’Albufera des Grau, the majestic port of Mahon, the captivating fishing village of Binibeca and the beaches of Binigaus, Mitjana, Macarella, Es Talaier and Son Saura are just some of the delights that you will discover as you painstakingly make your way through the course, grow more and more enamoured of this island (if you didn’t already hold the island in the highest esteem) and secure your status as a #LEGEND.
