XXIX Volta a peu Xabia

Race Date: Sunday, 25/02/2018
Race Distance: 10 Km

Luckily the ‘Beast from the East’ hasn’t hit the Mediterranean yet. However, it was still a bit nippy as 1424 runners lined up for the first of the 2018 12-race Circuit Marina Alta series held between February and June on the Spanish Costa Blanca. Once underway, with a clear blue sky and 10 degrees, the conditions were just about perfect and most of the 10k course followed the picturesque Javea seafront. Great atmosphere with loud music, bands and all very well organised. Excellent value too: the whole series costs 35 euros or you can pay 5 euros for individual races, with a T-shirt (different for each event) thrown in.
