Entry From €740 EUR

A wonderful holiday made of sea, sport and nature in the last paradise of the Mediterranean sea, Formentera, in the Balear Islands. (Spain)

The program is thorough and combines an incredible Trail Race with a week of holidays on an fantastic island.

Except the first day, all other stages are in the morning so you can enjoy the rest of the day at the beach or exploring.
5 stages in 5 days, 10, 13, 9, 10, 21 km to be run along the beautiful trails and small dust roads of Formentera.

Each stage is in a different part of the island so this way you can discover most of it, much better than a regular tourist.

The total distance is 63 km with a full rest day on Friday before the final stage, the half Marathon. For those that can not take the all week can still join the fun as the half marathon can be run separately. You can find more information in the wesite: Formentera Trail

You can find different options for accomodation HERE.

Enjoy a week or a weekend of holiday with running and relaxation...

Joined Zitoway for Formentera in 2016. Got hooked. Will be there in 2017 with friends. Features the greatest trails you can imagine, Tough but extremely beautiful. Atmosphere among runners is competitive but very friendly. Zitoway is famous for top-of-class organisation. Highly recommended.

Ran this event in 2016 and have to return in 2017, loved it so much. The perfect training week, in the quiet and peaceful Balearic, combining finest trail running with a relaxed holiday on Spanish beaches. Organisation is great, trails are awesome and clearly flagged. Two thumbs up!

I went last year and really enjoyed it, not only the wonderful site of Formentera but the superwell organised event by Zitoway. I had the chance to previously go to 100Km Sahara, unfortunately cancelled due to the terrorist threat, I highly recommend their races.
