As people tell us every year, your heart rate will begin to get faster as the start date approaches. Some put it down to nerves, others to emotion…We call it Camí de Cavalls. Its 100 km race format involves a night-time start from Mahon, in the direction of Ciutadella, with one of the most star-filled night skies that you will ever remember.
The starting line of this course is the majestic port of Mahon, the second largest natural port in Europe, where runners can get off to a fast start before they promptly enter the Natural Park of s’Albufera des Grau, the most important natural space on the island, where the environment demands our utmost respect. Sa Mesquida, Es Grau, Favaritx lighthouse, s’Hort des Lleó, Addaia, S’Arenal des Castell…with every stride you take, you will discover new places from dawn to dusk.
At Playas de Fornells, you will find a refreshment point where you can freshen up before you tackle the most demanding stretch of the course: if you are a pace-setter, you will pass through Cavalleria and Binimetl·là as dawn brakes, before reaching Ets Alocs, where your quadriceps will feel the strain of the steepest incline.
Cala Pilar, Algaiarens, Cala Morell and the Punta Nati lighthouse will be the last reference points before you reach Ciutadella and tackle the final stretch of an adventure the ends in the impressive and well-maintained finisher zone.
