The organizers are well-honed, for this 8th edition they have still put the accent on the welcome, the friendliness. For the participants, the level of the difficulty of the zones is divided into several categories: yellow (the easiest), green (moderately difficult), blue (difficult) and the red level (very difficult) for the participants who have a very high level.
The cross (inter-zone) is 35 km with 20 zones, divided into 2 categories to avoid waiting at the entrances of the zones. These are in the mountains around Sant Feliu de Guíxols. Some areas dominate the sea, the panorama is fantastic, and the final areas are located on the edge of the Mediterranean, about ten meters from the sea, which is really exclusive in southern Europe.
