Greenways Marathon is a popular race that runs through old railway lines rehabilitated on roads. The organization plans to carry out three races by 2020, with the one in Girona giving the starting gun on March 1 . The other two races will be held in Ojos Negros on March 29 and in Plazaola on September 13.

It is an online race with the start at different points and the same finish point. Thus, the four distances offered by the organization run through the old Greenways of the Carrilet in Girona, starting in Girona and ending in Platja d'Aro, depending on the distance of the race: the 42K route begins in Girona , the 30K route It starts in Cassà de la Selva , the 21K one in Llagostera and the 10K one in the Pavelló d'Esports in Santa Cristina d'Aro . They all end at the Palau d'Esports i Congressos (Pl. Europa, Platja d'Aro) . The route is, for the most part, a track on a smooth surface of land and suitable for all audiences . As it is a smooth terrain and for nothing technical you can use your asphalt shoes. Also, you can run fast. The route is closed to traffic, except for organization vehicles.

Travel

The Carrilet Greenway route is an 80% compact dirt track (track without stones, there are no trails) combined with asphalt, so mixed sports are recommended, and it runs in the middle of nature, passing through rural areas characteristic of the area, going from the mountain to the sea.

A route closed to traffic, with the exception of the organization's vehicles, not more than 4 meters wide and completely safe for all participants.

The marking: unlike other tests and in order to unify the mileage of the four distances, the kilometer points will indicate the distance remaining until arrival (p. Ex. 20 KM MISSING). All the kilometer points will be marked and will serve for any distance in which you participate.

The tour begins in Girona and ends in the municipality of Platja d'Aro, specifically, in the Palau d'Esports i Congressos, passing through the municipalities of Quart, Llambilles, Cassà de la Selva, Llagostera, Santa Cristina d'Aro and Castell d'Aro. A tour that will envelop you and leave you breathless!
