The way that the herreños have to conserve the legacy that has been transmitted to them is reflected in every kilometer of the 42 of this distance of the Meridian Marathon . All the effort made by the ancestors who carved slopes and cliffs to find impossible steps, are today paths through which to discover a journey that takes the participant to magical territories such as the Mencáfete Reserve , a prehistoric forest in which while traveling through it it is understood how a landscape of thousands of years of existence was originally. The ancient sounds of Sabinosa push runners to the Cres highlands, where the door is opened to the fantasy created by the stoic silhouettes of centuries-old Sabine women during an unforgettable career stretch. Heartbeats of herreña history will be the impulse to get from the Sanctuary of Los Reyes to the top of the slopes of the Julan, where the sensation of flying over the great blue of the Sea of Las Calmas will arise. From there, volcanic cones watch the participant advance based on primitive rhythms along the ridge that leads him to the highest peak of this distant island. Malpaso points to Two Sisters to show the point at which to start the dizzying descent that is heading towards the heat of El Hierro that will flood the goal of a journey through time that will always be remembered.
