TERRAIN:

Formed by typical mediterranean forest, it's mainly characterized by four water sources that cross the area and form a canalised river. The vegetation around the riverbank makes crossing it difficult and forces competitors to be very focused in choosing the right route.

 

The map is scattered by centenary holm oaks, some of them older than 400 years, as well as pine trees and centenary olive trees. There are also many archaeological remains that will delight the competitors.

 

We have combined the route choice together with fast sections which need good concentration and the fast pace typical of a Sprint race.
