Route 101 km from Ronda
In addition this year were announced changes in the route 101 km Ronda. The organization wanted to separate the runners and Mountain Bike riders, so the latter will start the test one hour before and go to Las Navetas. The runners will march towards the zone of the Cortijo de Melequetín and this year as a novelty they will not pass through Alcalá del Valle but from the Cortijo de La Manga they will descend towards Setenil de las Bodegas.c.
To these new changes is added a new part for all the participants of the 101 km of Ronda and is that after going up to the hermitage a complete turn will be given to the hill of Hacho to return to Montejaque. In this way this year the race is hardened reaching the 3000 meters of unevenness for the runners.
The route will continue through the famous municipalities of Ronda, Arriate, Alcalá del Valle, Setenil de las Bodegas, Montejaque and Benaoján.
This year the children’s race will have 1200 places with a 3 km route through Ronda crossing parts of the 101 km.
