The trail takes on gravel roads located in the upper part of the island, the La Mola area; then the runners go downhill to the Mitjorn beach via the "Stufador" trail and go back up via the "Roman" trail.

At the finish line, free pasta party for all the runners. 

It's HARDLY RECOMMENDED for all the runners to run with at least a 0.5 l. water bottle (hipbelt, camelbak or others): in case of high temperatures the three waterpoints could be unfit to offer the necessary rehydration.
