Half Marathon TRAIL – Km 21.1
The course stretches partially on flat dust roads in the upper part of the area ( La Mola) and partially on downhill trails leading to Mitjorn beach and then climbing up back to La Mola, following the historical Camino Romano.
The first 6 km are flat; after the first wateer point is downhill to reach the 2nd water point; from here a single track clamb up to reach km 14. The last 6 km are flat, on asphalt in the last 700 meters before the La Mola lighthouse.
Difficulties are mainly due to the terrain – pretty jagged and demanding in some sections – and to the 420 meters climb. A map of the race course is shown by the start line.
Besides the final refreshment point, water points at 6th, 11th and 17th km are set; the course will be marked as described at the pre-start briefing. By the start line a parking for cars and scooters will be set. A guarded spot where to leave sport bags also will be set. Time limit 3 hours.

Formentera TRAIL – Km 10.0
Is the new entry for this edition, a competitive 10 km that entirely stretches in the upper part of Pilar de la Mola featuring an easy and almost flat course, pretty fast.
A single refreshment point at half distance will be set.
There is neither downhill along the Stufador trail nor climb on Camino Romano single track: the whole itinerary stretches in the upper parto of La Mola.
