Entries open for seventh edition of Pinolere Trail
The seventh edition of the Pinolere Trail, a mountain race organised by the Orotava-Clator Athletics Club and sponsored by the City Council of La Orotava, with the collaboration of the Cabildo de Tenerife, is launched with its usual flavour and with three distances: 42, 27 and 11 kilometres. This veteran trail test will be held on April 26th, 2020.
The Pinolere Museum and Ethnographic Park will be, once again, the nerve centre of a sporting event which will attract up to 1,000 people. The queen mode will be the 42-kilometre race, which runs between Pinolere, Cruz del Dornajito, Ramón El Caminero Recreation Area and near Limón Mountain. This demanding mountain marathon, which reaches almost a height of 2,000 metres, was born in 2018, receiving the blessing of the most demand-ing runners due to the hardness of its route and its spectacular landscapes.
The intermediate modality, with 27 kilometres of travel from Pinolere, passes through the Cruz del Dornajito and the Camino de Chasna. This category has been disputed 2014, passing over the Protected Landscape of La Resbala, an important natural centre of Tenerife, and faces the hard climb of the Barranco del Infierno, located a few kilometres away from the finish line.
And finally, the little sister will be the test of 11 kilometres, which runs through Pinolere and the Casa del Agua.. All modalities cross several paths belonging to PR-TF 35, GR 131, part of the Camino de Can-delaria and several forest tracks.
Registrations are now open and will remain so until April 3rd, 2020 on the official website of the test: www.pin-oleretrail.com.
The Orotava test promotes an activity in nature that generates an outstanding socio-economic development in the rural areas. This environmental respect tran-slates into the achievement of a more sustainable sports event in each edition, despite the fact that each year it attracts hundreds of runners on the island and many other points of the regional and peninsular geography. Another funda-mental pillar for the organi-sation is the maintenance of some traditional paths. Without the conservation that is done on the occasion of the development of the race, many of them would be buried by vegetation.
