Rise to the challenge of annual Running Trail
San Juan de la Rambla has opened registration for the fifth edition of its Running Trail.
The route of nine kilometres is of variable intensity with a circuit that crosses the entire municipality, making the event an unmissable event in the sports calendar of the region.
The race is on Sunday, June 23rd and encompasses a wide variety of landscapes which has become one of its hall-marks.
The departure point is the plaza Rosario Oramas in the heart of the historic centre where the starting gun will be sounded at 10am.
Following the road, the participants will head for Las Aguas where they will find the first asphalt descent. Once there, the first stretch of mountain begins, taking the Rambla de los Caballos trail, which will take participants to the picturesque neighbour-hood of La Rambla.
Without time to regain strength, the runners must face one of the most feared points of the 9 kilometres, the ascent ramp to the recreational park of Barranco Ruiz, which, by its almost vertical disposition, offers a tremendous cha-llenge of strength and re-sistance. Once in the park, the task continues to increase when facing the rising path of the ravine.
Once this section of moun-tain is completed, runners will arrive at the plaza Los Rodríguez, in La Vera, where they will return to the asphalt to descend quickly through the recently paved calle Mazapé until the last stretch of mountain along the Risco trail. that challenges the participants, but this time in descent.
Along the path, they will arrive at Avenida de La Libertad, returning to the historic quarter and closing the circular circuit again at the plaza Rosario Oramas for the finish line.
The collection of numbers will be available from 8.30am on the same day of the race, dividing the athletes into junior, general and veteran categories. Registration, at the price of 10 euros, can be formalised both in the municipal offices or on the website of the council www.sanjuandelarambla.es. The deadline is open until Saturday, June 22nd.
The V Running Trail Villa of San Juan de la Rambla is developed within the sche-dule of patron festivities in honour of San Juan Bautista and is organised by the sports department in collaboration with the San Juan 2019 Festival Commission.
