The Mountain Festival, with which the Valencian sports brand Lurbel will celebrate its 25th Anniversary, will take place next week in Yeste (Albacete, Spain). Registrations are still open here until this Sunday.
This is why, apart from the competitive modalities of trail running, sprint trail/trekking route and cycling, that will take place on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd of April, we are also finalizing a few key parallel activities in order to turn this event into an authentic mountain festival with recreational-sports nature.
This special edition, the perfect occasion for Lurbel to celebrate its 25th Anniversary, will show participants different points of view and landscapes of Calar del Mundo. Moreover, we have organized the routes accessible to different types of runners and hikers, to open this event to all kinds of public.
There are different activities organized during this sporting event, such as the typical Ruta de la tapa ("Tapas Tour"), offered by a series of bars and restaurants with typical food at affordable prices; and the race for kids which will take place in the old area of the town. All of this will be accompanied by the Runner's Fair, that will be located at the Plaza del Convento in Yeste. This will be the central point of the event from Friday 21st until Sunday 23rd of April.
There will be an information point where you can ask about the different activities and the times when they take place, and also about the different points during the race where one can see and support participants.
The most important modality is 45K, with a positive elevation gain of 3000 meters approximately. The modality 25K has a positive elevation gain of 1400 meters. For those who is begin in "trail running", there is a Sprint Trail modality of 10,7K that can also be covered as Trekking modality.
A perfect runner's bag
Such a special event of anniversary requires a special runner's bag, with a PVPR around double the price of the registration fee. Trail running modalities and trekking route will take place on Saturday 22nd. The main product for runners of 25K and 45K will be the sock Bmax Desafio, considered one of the best socks for trail running thanks to its protection even in the most demanding challenges, a total guarantee of protection against blisters.
They will also receive their own and exclusive "Desafio T-shirt", personalized with the logo of the Desafio Lurbel. This t-shirt has been developed with antibacterial ionic silver mesh and with a weaving system characterized by its two-way elasticity. Perfect features to provide total adaptability.
This is the first time that Desafío Lurbel Mountain Festival Aniversario has a cycling modality. And it will be one of the hardest races at a national level. A modality of 70K with 3000 meters of positive elevation gain and 7 mountain passes across the route. All the participants in this modality will be given a maillot of the Cycling collection of Lurbel, developed with charcoal bamboo fibres, which optimizes the antibacterial action, and quick drying features.
