The greatest challenge in our history. To make of Eurafrica an Ultra Trail event, including the awaited fourth stage, with which we close a week of authentic Intercontinental Trail running.
With this Ultra120, we surpassed for the first time the 100 kilometers in our event, with a proposal undoubtedly improved, thanks to the incorporation of the stage in the province of Malaga to the already known three stages in Cadiz, Gibraltar and Morocco.
This Ultra modality is formed by all the stages of the event: Musa 21K +1.500m (Morocco), Aurum 43K +2.000m (Málaga), Quercus 50K +2.400m (Cádiz) and #VisitGibraltarVertical 5K +450m. In total 120 Kilometres, with +6.350m of elevation gain.
A combination of routes that has as its starting point the spectacular African stage, our beloved and feared Jbel Musa, at the foot of Belyounech, will welcome us with its rock blocks and very technical trails next to the sea, with a very powerful starting point for Eurafrica19.
We will continue with the great novelty of the Malaga stage, an elegant and fun mountain marathon with impressive landscapes between the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park and the first foothills of the Alcornocales Natural Park, in the framework of the Guadiaro River Valley (from which we take the name -aurum is gold in Latin-), leaving Benaoján and ending in El Colmenar (Cortes de la Frontera).
We will continue with the already veteran and well-known Quercus 50K, based in Algeciras. A great race, very complete and varied, with sectors with zones to run fast of forest track, up to very technical areas, in paths of closed forest, with the humidity always present.
Eurafrica19 will be closed for the first time in Gibraltar, in the spectacular setting of Mediterranean Steps, with a proposed new route and celebrating the closure of our event in the mythical Cave of St Michael, a place to remember.
To participate in the Intercontinental Ultra 120 requires experience in technical mountain tests and long duration, and a good state of form, to meet the distances and cutting times with guarantees.
