OPINION OF THE COURSE PLANNER

The chosen terrain for the middle distance race gives two different areas. On one side there is a plateau where the speed of the race will be maximum and where the the loss of direction and parallel mistakes can make competitors lose a long time. On the other side there is a slope with many rock details and where the physical condition and the correct reading of the map will be decisive. There is an area due to fallen trees that can make the race difficult.

As is usual in the Costa Calida Trophy, the chasing start for the middle distance will add extra difficulty as well as a result of nervousness and a loss of concentration.

The courses are very demanding, as is usual in the Costa Calida, with many changes of direction and where it will be necessary to apply all the different skills. 

It is highly recommended to use some protection for legs and ankles.

Really hope you will enjoy!
