Lurbel Challenge Aitana will take place on the 28th of November and it will have a new trail race of 120K with 7.200m of elevation gain
The date for the Lurbel Challenge Aitana has been set for 2015. The “even more difficult” of the events promoted by the company, with start and finish in the town of Finestrat (Alicante), will take place on the 28th of November.
The novelty of this edition is the new and amazing modality of 120K and 7.200 metres of elevation gain. Besides arriving to the peaks of Puig Campana, with 1.410 metres and the Aitana mountain range, with 1.557 metres, the route of this race goes across the Guadalest Valley to reach the most important peaks of the Serrella mountain range: the Mallada del Llop of 1.360m, the Pla de la Casa with 1.379m and the Recingle Alt or Serrella Peak of 1.359m.
40K and 80K
Two more modalities will complete this event. One race of 40K and 2.600 meters of elevation gain and another one of 80K and 4.500 metres of elevation gain. Both of them have the same format of the 2014 edition.
The 40K race does not change regarding the circuit of the first edition. However, the 80K race will be based in the circuit of the 85K of 2014, but without reaching neither the Ponotx nor the Orxeta Mountain Range, but going through the town of Benifato.
