COMPETITION


To win the Costa Calida Trophy, you must run 2 races (long + middle).

 

TERRAIN

The competition area for long and middle distance is located at the North-Eastern part of Sierra Espuña, and between the municipalities of Alhama de Murcia and Pliego.

At an altitude between 450 and 600 meters above sea level, the moderate slopes will be decisive in the selection of routes.The rock details are mostly boulders and cliffs.

The vegetation is typical mediterranean forest, made up of pines, alternating with areas where the forest is clean, and other areas with thicker vegetation that can slow the running pace. The undergrowth is made up of Rosemary, Esparto and Spanish Kermes Oak.

 

BIB NUMBER

The official CC2018 bib number is compulsory.

Each club must collect their team´s bid number at the information event centers.

 

ANTI-DOPING

Doping is strictly forbidden, and the organisers of CC2018 are dedicated to supporting the anti-doping authorities in their work.

 

SPORTIDENT

We use the Sportident system. Please bring your own. If you don´t have one you can rent one at the competition area.

It's compulsory to download sportident even if you retire.
