We already have a date for the most brutal weekend that Finestrat can bring you! From November 15 to 17 the Costa Blanca Trails is held, a trail race in which you can choose how many kilometers to collect:

  • GTCB (101K): It begins with the ascent to the Puig Campana and ends with the Pico Aitana the maximum height of Alicante, but before that it completely runs through the Serrella with its impressive ridge through its main peaks, the Mallada del Llop, the Pico Serrella, Pla de la Casa and Recingle Alt.
  • UTCB (84K): The Puig Campana, Mallada del Llop and Aitana are its summits, three vertical kilometers within an ultra trail.
  • MCB (46K): The mountain marathon with an added plus, its summit; the Puig Campana. In addition, you will surround the impressive walls of the Ponoig and visit places as impressive as the Racó de les Tovaines, Port de l'Arch and the Goleró.
  • TPC (29K): Many runners asked for a route that the Puig Campana climbed but did not exceed in kilometers and here it is, the TPC is perfect for it.
  • MTF (20K): Walking or running, it doesn't matter. Puig Campana ring road with 20 km. and 1,000 meters of positive slope will take you through Coll del Pouet, Coll de Llamp and Coll de Sacarest.
