FINESTRAT is preparing to welcome more than 700 runners participating in the ‘Costa Blanca Trails’ next month.

The event, made up of two ultra-marathons of 102 kilometres and 65 kilometres, a regular marathon of 40 kilometres and a hike of 18 kilometres, takes place on Saturday November 11 and participants will cover the main summits of the Marina Baixa:

Puig Campana – the most emblematic peak of Finestrat and the second highest mountain in the province at 1,410 metres.

Sierra Aitana – the highest mountain in the province at 1,557 metres.

Mallada del Llop – in la Serrella reaching 1,360 metres

Mayor of Finestrat Juan Francisco Perez thanked the Diputacion de Alicante and the Coast Blanca Tourism Board “for their involvement in this event, with which we continue to promote Finestrat and its surrounding areas.”

He estimates that the event will attract around 2,000 spectators and confirmed that over 400 volunteers will work together with the emergency services to ensure the safety and security of all involved.

Runners from the Denmark, Norway, Russia and the UK have registered, as well as runners from 20 Spanish provinces.

Entries are still open until November 4 via www.mychip.es.
