Domande Frequenti

Can someone collect my race pack for me?

keyboard_arrow_down

Yes, if necessary.

How do I get to the race location?

keyboard_arrow_down

Located by the A-92 motorway, Loja is just 35 minutes from Granada airport and 55 min from Malaga airport. For more information on arrivals and departures, go to the Travel page.

Can I change the distance after I purchase a ticket?

keyboard_arrow_down

A runner who drops out of a stage may continue running on a later day with the Race Organization’s approval but would no longer be classified for the overall race in the General Classification Results. A dropped-out runner may still qualify for the podium on an individual stage but will not be considered for the overall race results.

What is the cancelation/refund policy for this event?

keyboard_arrow_down

€350 is non-refundable and non-transferable. In the event of a competitor cancelling due to medically supported injury / illness or pregnancy, he / she can pass the remaining balance of entry fee†( less the deposit )†to another person or be reimbursed a % of the amount paid. Before 31 May 2025: 100% reimbursement (less a €100 fee and non-refundable deposit). 100% of payment (including deposit) transferred to AAUT 2026 (€200 fee). If only the deposit was paid, it can be transferred to AAUT 2026. From 31 May 2025 (28 days before the event): No refund or transfer options are available.

Are competitors required to finish each stage within a set time limit?

keyboard_arrow_down

There will be a time limit on each stage based on a 5.5-6.5km/h minimum average speed requirement. The checkpoint closing times will be posted the evening before the following day’s stage. If a runner does not reach a CP by the CP closing time, he/she will be picked up and driven to the stage finish. The Race Doctor and Race Director’s decision is based on the personal safety of the runner and support team and their word is final.

Do I need to know how to read a map and a compass?

keyboard_arrow_down

No. The course is well-marked with bright pink ribbons and marking paint. Road junctions are heavily marked to prevent runner error. The runner must review and read the Official Race Road Book provided at registration. It is important that every runner depends on her/his own navigation abilities by following the official race markings and not simply follow other runners or GPX files.

Can we buy fresh food at the villages and camps where we are staying?

keyboard_arrow_down

The race hotel is 1 km from a large supermarket. Stage 1 is in walking distance of a few restaurants and grocery stores. Stage 2 ends in Játar where a restaurant offers a special menu for runners to purchase. There is no grocery store. The Stage 3 campsite is remote. The organization prepares a paella meal on location. Stage 4 is in a campsite and will offer a pasta meal. Stage 5 ends back at the hotel for the Gala Dinner.
