Panoramic route

Organised by Sierra Bermeja Trails and Casares Town Council, it is designed as a sporting event to enjoy nature and the landscape, with a panoramic route which starts and finishes in the square of Casares.

The race has a similar route to the last editions, full of great views and crossing beautiful areas of the municipality such as Sierra Crestellina, Monte del Duque and Arroyo Hondo.  There are three types of participation: two non-competitive races, the Pequetrail and the 14 kilometre “hiking” race, and the 21 kilometre competitive race.

Charity run

The event has a charitable nature, with €2 from each of the entries going to the Casares Memory School, which works with the elderly in the municipality.
