Check Points

It's important that you plan your march well: you are 4 people walking for a maximum of 32 hours in the distance of 100 Kilometers and a maximum of 16 hours in the distance of 50 Kilometers, with rythms and breaks that you must agree well with your support team.

The Start point of the 100 Kilometers is on Saturdat at 9:00 am: the greenway will be open to the public.The time of greater affluence of Saturday is from 8:00am to 10:00 am. You should be cautious, patient and share the road with cyclists and walkers. The departure of the 50 Kilometers is from Celrà on Saturday at 12:00 am.

The route of the Trailwalker runs through natural areas that we must preserve and conserve. Do not throw garbage, use the selective collection containers located at the control points. Let's leave the route cleaner than we found it! Use the WC located at the control points.

All the marchers of the team must go through the controls together, including the Start. Participants who do not pass through any of the controls will be automatically disqualified.

The opening and closing times of the control points are calculated for a minimum total time of 9 hours and a maximum of 32 hours. The teams that do not reach a control point before its closure will not continue.

Provisioning

IMPORTANT! To avoid increasing plastic waste, we will not provide plastic cups for water, coffe or broth. Please, bring your glasses and vessels that you need.

The provisioning offered at the checkpoints is limited and donated by the companies that collaborate, so the nourishment of the marchers should be provided mainly by the support team, who has enough time to go and find what they need.

Even so, in all the control points you will find water and fruit for the 4 members of the team that walk or run. The support team will not be able to have the supplies reserved for the marchers, to ensure that the last teams do not lack especially from water and fruit, as well as the products that our sponsors give to the marketers.

While walking between checkpoints is important to keep in the backpack nutrition and hydration products. Currently there are many drinks developed to consume during exercise. Have low doses of carbohydrate and allow to maintain sugar levels in the blood. To ensure effectiveness of hydration level is equally important that contains minerals, this improving the intestinal absorption of sodium and water. Is advised to take every half hour 0,5l of water because it is advisable to drink before you get the sensation of thirst.

If we can eat any solid food is recommended every 30-60 minutes. It’s better to eat easily digestible foods like ice, candy, energy bars or fruit. The fruit can be fresh (preferably banana and orange) or dry (dates, raisins and figs). At this time we can afford the pleasure of eating chocolate (preferably black and Fair Trade).

Sanitary Service

We strengthen the health service with medical assistance, physiology and podiatry.

Prevention: we recommend a prueba médica deportiva before a great effort like the Trailwalker.
Emergency telephone number: on the back cover of the roadbook you will find the telephone number you can call if you need the medical equipment to travel to your equipment. We suggest you activate the gps so that the medical vehicle can locate you as soon as possible.

Ambulance in all the check points: 8 medical care teams in the controls of the route, health care vehicles and the 24h career doctor facilitated by the main sponsor of the event, DKV Seguros.

A team of physiotherapists made up of professors and student volunteers from the Faculty of Health Sciences Blanquerna, will be available to runners who request it in Girona and a team of nurses from Blanquerna will reinforce podiatric cures and other injuries in Cassà.

Other professionals from the Col·legi de Podòlegs de Catalunya will also attend the participants in Girona and Llagostera.
