An island, three stages, an epic adventure. 

Epic Camí de Cavalls 360º is a mountain race in stages that goes around the island of Menorca. Teams of 2 people participate in it. It has 3 different modalities to choose from and we offer the possibility of overnight stay at the end of the stages.

Modalities

You can choose from three different modalities to participate in this race:

TRAILRUN EPIC 360º. The epic adventure of Camí de Cavalls 360º divided in three stages of race on foot (running) with an average of 52 km and a height difference of 925 m.

EXPERIENCE 360º. The experience of Camí de Cavalls 360º with 3 selected stages with an average of 34 km and a height difference of 665 m.

MOUNTAINBIKE EPIC 360º. Camí de Cavalls 360º in three stages of pure MTB through an exciting and technically demanding track.

Team participation

To participate you have to gather a team of two people, in tune with the values the Epic Camí de Cavalls 360º race promotes: collaboration and solidarity amongst participants, joining forces, sharing experience and, all in all, the coexistance during three days with a community of a group of different people with the same values and goals. Both members of each team have to complete together all the itinerary.

Classification and Minimum time

Winners of the event will be the ones who complete all three stages in a shorter time within each category (mixed, male and female) and modality, as long as there is a minimum of 5 teams in that category.

Regarding schedules and cut times, they will be shared in the following weeks. Anyway, they will allows the Experience 360º to be done on a walking pace, while TrailRun Epic 360º modality can only be completed running in some of the sections.

Route

The Epic Camí de Cavalls 360º avoids as much as possible urban and paved zones, aiming to offer the best route available. Anyway, in some cases the asphalt is inevitable to complete the track, and these sections will be done sharing them with the traffic.

The itinerary is based on GR 223 Camí de Cavalls, an ancestral path that goes around Menorca, following faitufully, during a lot of kilometres, the borders of the island. Along its 157 KM, it goes through a range of landscapes unique in the world, formed by a great number of natural areas, usually fragile and protected. Amongst them, the most important area is Albufera des Grau natural park and other natural protected areas: large unspoilt caves, streams, precipices, cliffs, woods and lands, framed with the typical Menorcan dry-stone walls.

Overnight stay at the end of the stage

Epic Camí de Cavalls 360º is designed to be done with overnight stay at the end of each stage, and we recommend participants to take this option. An ovenight stay free option will be offered, as well as other accommodation options.
