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 is at 9.00: the route will be open to the public. 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 cleanest route of how we find it! Use the WC located at the control points.

All the equipment will have to go through all the controls (the 4 marchers at the same time) including the output, after the backpack control. Participants who do not pass through any of the controls will be automatically disqualified. You can calculate your schedules with the route calculator.

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

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.

We have ambulances in all the check points: medical care teams in the controls of the route, health care vehicles and the 24h career doctor facilitated by Civil Protection.

A team of physiotherapists made up of professors and student volunteers from the Complutense University of Madrid will be available to runners who request it.

Podiatrists of AEPODE will also attend the participants.
