CHOOSE YOUR CATEGORY

There is no doubt that Formentera has the perfect atmosphere to dispute a race. Natural landscapes, incredible sea views and a lot of peace and tranquility. That’s why this competition is perfect for anyone who wants to rediscover or discover for the first time the most beautiful corners of this amazing island.

The first and most important thing is considering your level of preparation. Depending on your physical performance and your stamina it will be more advisable to sign up for one course or another. Keep in mind that the only thing that will happen during the competition is you in direct contact with nature, the most wonderful places on Formentera and the orographic difficulties of the land.

Because of running all the time by the sea, you will find constant changes in the terrain. And you must bear this in mind when selecting which race you want to take part in. It is not the same to run for a couple of hours along a route that combines mountain areas, asphalt and rocky areas, as to endure these earthly changes for more than ten hours.

No one knows your endurance better than you. And because everyone runs at a different pace, there are a variety of racing options so you can choose the one that suits you best.

FORMENTERA ALL ROUND TRAIL

The Formentera All Round Trail is a 74 km race that stretches along the entire coastline of the island. The runner who decides to take part in this route will make a complete tour of Formentera. Since it has the starting point and the finish line in the Port of La Savina itself. In addition, this race is divided into several categories:

  • Absolute (male and female)
  • U-23 (male and female)
  • Senior (male and female)
  • Veterans 40 (male and female)
  • Veterans 50 (Male and Female)

The race is scheduled to take place within 13 hours. These are hours and hours running along the entire coastline of Formentera, which will take your physical and mental endurance to the extreme. Although the route does not have a significant unevenness, you will find constant changes of terrain.

In addition, the orography of the island, the weather and running by the sea, make this test even harder. In fact, even the use of poles is allowed, but only with a rubber tip. That’s why you have to be well prepared to carry out this challenge.

It is a very rewarding experience, as you will have the opportunity to watch the sunset from Formentera and enjoy a good walk at night, but it is only suitable for the best prepared runners. And you, are you ready?

HALF ROUND FORMENTERA TRAIL

Simultaneously with the Formentera All Round Trail, the Half Round Formentera Trail will be held. It is a little more than 40 km along the coast of the island, with the same finish line, the port of La Savina, but with a different starting point, Es Arenals. In addition, there are also different categories to join in this race:

  • Absolute (male and female)
  • U-23 (male and female)
  • Senior (male and female)
  • Veterans (male and female)
  • Veterans 50 (Male and Female)

Although they are 30 km less than the full race, it is planned that this route will be carried out at most in just over nine hours. This is due, as we mentioned before, to the difficulties of the terrain.

TROS DE FART

And finally, there is also the option of participating in the Tros de Fart. A 21 km race, which starts in Es Caló, but where the route will take you to the same finish line as the port of La Savina. In this case, there are only two categories to register for.

  • Absolute (male and female)

They are less than five hours of race, perfect to keep contact with the orography of the island, live the experience and enjoy every kilometer of the route.

OTHER INFORMATION TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT FORMENTERA ALL ROUND TRAIL

You can only participate in one of the races if you are over 18 years old. In addition, it is very important to comply with all the regulations imposed by the organization of the event. One of these rules, if not the most important, is that “participants must respect the environment in which the trail is conducted and keep the environment clean.

In other words, don’t throw your food containers around. You will be tired, you will run out of water and you will not want to carry it in your hand all the time. But for that there will be containers all along the route where you can throw the garbage. Take care of the environment. Formentera is a very beautiful island, but we all have to keep it clean.

In fact, if the organization finds someone throwing a bottle, a piece of paper or any kind of rubbish on the ground, it will disqualify the runner immediately.

For the correct reading of the times, the participants must carry the MyLaps chip in their slipper during the entire route. In this way, the entire race will be tracked electronically.

In addition, it must be kept in mind that this is a major test. And, as we said before, it is recommended that if you participate you are in good physical shape.

IT’S TIME TO GET READY
