The dream of uniting the two shores of the Strait of Gibraltar, the illusion of telling the story of this historic, remote and unique place through a mountain race divided in different legs.
Experiencing how it was carried out was exciting, but the thought of living it again is even more so.
After three years, we will once again cross the 14k that links the Strait of Gibraltar, to live and get to know the southern shore, its colours, the hospitality of our Moroccan neighbours, and to run the half marathon of the Jbel Musa, the limestone mass that houses our Skyrace. 21K and 1,400mD+ await you on a technical route, without rest, pure mountain, in Belyounech, between Tangier and M’Diq.
We will continue, on the day of our return to European soil, with a beautiful and electric individual time trial through the streets, river and forests of Jimena de la Frontera, 6K and 260mD+ fun at sunset, to continue the adventure in the white village of Campo de Gibraltar.
At the halfway point of the event, the village of Estación de Gaucín awaits us, in the municipality of Cortes de la Frontera (Málaga), where the longest leg of the event awaits you, 25K and 1,000mD+ between the natural parks of Grazalema and Alcornocales, between stone and forest, with trails along the Guadiaro River, climbs and stretches along the traditional cork extraction routes, a traditional industry in the area.
nd a final day of heart-racing awaits us, with two legs on the last day. The first, in the morning, a beautiful half marathon through the Mediterranean forests of the Alcornocales de Algeciras Natural Park (Cádiz), enjoying its technical trails, its fast tracks and the breathtaking views of the Strait of Gibraltar. 21K and 1.100mD+ for this fourth leg in Cádiz.
And on the afternoon of the 1st of November, closing ceremony and grand finale in Gibraltar, with a short, beautiful and demanding leg of 5K and 500mD+ through the streets of the peculiar city of the Rock, the trails of the Upper Rock Natural Reserve, the Windsor Suspension Bridge and closing your Eurafrican participation at the highest point of the Rock: O’Hara’s Battery, with an incredible panoramic view of this beautiful and wild place that is the Strait, where you have moulded the intercontinental medal that you will receive in St Michael’s Cave, inside the mythical Mos Calpe.
Isn’t it an exciting trip? A week of living together with cultures and races to remember for a lifetime.
