The mayor declared that it is about a test highly appreciated by the participants, having the coastal corridor as a setting, the great sustainable infrastructure that has been executed to unite the more than 20 kilometers of Estepona coastline, which have allowed the city to be structured from the sea and enjoy enclaves that were inaccessible and now offer privileged views from the city.
Likewise, the municipal manager highlighted the success of this test in its first edition, in which the quota of participants was completed. For this reason, according to the mayor, this competition is becoming a “an appointment highly desired by athletes due to the singularity of the environment and its complexity, since the route is a challenge due to the difficulty presented by the different soils that make it up, since they cross concrete surfaces, compacted earth, walkways and wooden bridges”.
The test will have a maximum of 700 participants and will run for a total of 21,097 kilometers. It will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the categories called are Junior, Promise, Senior, Veterans from 35 to 70 years old and Absolute Local, in addition a category has been opened for people with functional diversity as long as they prove a minimum disability of 33 percent. Large amounts of prizes will be distributed.
The registration period has been established from February 20 to April 26, at 2:00 p.m., through the website www.dorsalchip.es. The prices are 15 euros for the first 200 registered, 20 euros until April 9 and 25 euros from April 10 to 26 at 2:00 p.m., or until the registered quota is covered.
