EURAFRICA TRAIL

THE GOOD WALKER LEAVES NO TRACES...

Uniting The Continents

Eurafrica Trail was born, in October 2014, with a single idea: to create the first mountain race between two continents in the world, in the Strait of Gibraltar. It was a dream as beautiful as it was ambitious, and after much planning, research and many adventures along the way, we managed to achieve the first Intercontinental edition of our race in November 2016.

 

There, at the final party in the Kasbah of Chefchaouen, we became aware of what our idea really meant: Eurafrica is our opportunity to make history, generate memories, unite different cultures through sport, show respect for nature and increase the awareness and knowledge of our natural and social heritage.

As a result, Eurafrica Trail is not (just) a race, it is a complete experience that creates personal stories in a unique place in the world: the Eurafrica Territory.

Contribute to the landscape and landscaping of the Territory

An event such as ours cannot pass through the place where it lives and breathes without some form of impact. We understand Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility as an obligation for all companies of our generation. We are obliged and excited to bring about a change for the better of the Eurafrica Territory.


Contribute to the landscape and landscaping of the Territory

An event such as ours cannot pass "on tiptoe" through the place where it lives and develops. We understand Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility as an obligation for all companies of our generation. We are obliged and excited to bring about a change for the better of the Territory.


Think, Say, Do. We are responsible for the role that we play in our environment.

Eurafrica Trail is an event that very much respects the environment and the society in which it is developed. From the beginning of our project, we understood how vital it was to make the growth of the event a natural and sustainable process, which would not mean endangering the conservation of the wonderful place where the races takes place (Biosphere Reserve).

Likewise, we have always understood that Eurafrica can be a vehicle to unite the societies that host the event (on both continents).

With this philosophy in mind, we have developed a set of social and environmental actions that bring us closer to our objective of creating an eco-friendly and sustainable event. Some examples are

EURAFRICA FOREST

 

Once we became pioneers in the application of FEDME’s good practice guide, we set ourselves the goal of offsetting the ecological footprint from our event.

Eurafrica, like any event of its scale, generates a considerable CO2 footprint. This, despite the best efforts of the event organizers to adopt eco-friendly measures such as efficiency in travel or not printing commercial or administrative paperwork.

With the hope of reducing our impact on the Eurafrica territory and the ultimate goal of eliminating any damage or negative impact to our natural environment we enjoy during the week´s events, we created, together with the Department of the Environment of the Andalusian Government and the management of the Los Alcornocales Natural Park, the “Bosque Eurafrica” Project. As a result we have become the first Trail Running race in Spain to carry out an Ecological Footprint compensation programme. An innovative and exciting internal project for the whole community of Campo de Gibraltar, which we would like to replicate on the Moroccan and Gibraltarian shores

KNOWS THE TERRITORY

 

Our aim is to ensure that schoolchildren in the Territory of Eurafrica know, love and respect the enormous cultural and environmental heritage that surrounds them. For this in 2020, we will select some educational centres in the region of Campo de Gibraltar, to develop a programme of talks and activities that will increase the awareness of the Intercontinental Biosphere Reserve of the Mediterranean, that is, the Territory of Eurafrica.

SECOND CHANCE

 

After the first edition of the Intercontinental Eurafrica Trail, several runners and participating clubs volunteered to hand over their sportswear in good condition (textile and footwear) to the runners on the Moroccan side. In 2017, the colleagues of SOS CardioSport, our medical team of cardioprotection in race, led an initiative that collected shoes in good condition during the months prior to Eurafrica Trail, with which they got dozens of shoes to facilitate the sporting life of our most disadvantaged neighbors on the southern shore of the Territory. We have decided to keep the fuse burning, and to coordinate from the organization of the event, a Plan so that the runners (participating in Eurafrica or not) who wish to participate, can give their sports equipment to help the runners of the Moroccan Rif to enjoy the sport in their mountains.

COMMITMENTS

  • Coherence

    Thinking, saying and doing the same—this is a principle that gives us the peace of mind and assuredness to give our best and solve problems

  • Zero Printing

    As of the first edition, we have reduced printing on paper to a minimum. We don’t have a poster, cards or folders.

  • Responsibility and Safety

    Eurafrica is held under the proviso that under no circumstances shall our assets—the participants, volunteers and the environment—be put in danger.

  • Aid for runners and volunteers

    We have taken part in sports events from both perspectives (runners and volunteers). We attempt to assist both these groups and provide them with a service that we would like to be given ourselves.

  • Conservation

    What we don’t know, cannot be loved; and what is not loved cannot be protected. One pillar of the Eurafrica Trail is to disseminate our natural heritage: the Intercontinental Biosphere Reserve of the Mediterranean..
