Toni Melis Tous and the Calvian Cristina Prats Vidal have won the 2021 edition of the Galatzó Trail in the 43-km race (GALATZÓ LEGEND) and are therefore the new Balearic champions of 'Curses per muntanya en línia 2021'. Damià Pons and Amanda Martín have won the Galatzó Half (23 km).

The GALATZÓ TRAIL 2021 had 2 distances, Galatzó Legend, a 43-km mountain marathon and a valid test for the FBME Balearic Mountain Racing Championship and the Galatzó Half, a 23-km mountain half marathon.

The international mountain race in Calvià was held this Sunday morning at the Galatzó Public Estate. The competition, refereed by the Federació Balear de Muntanya i Escalada (FBME), had on this occasion more than 600 participants, undoubtedly a great figure, taking into account the circumstances in which it is held on this occasion. Out of the total number of people registered, almost 17% were international athletes.

The weather finally respected for most of the race, and it was not  an obstacle for the more than 600 people registered  to enjoy a great mountain race at the Galatzó Public Estate.

 

GALATZÓ LEGEND
More than 200 people registered in this spectacular and demanding race. The objective is to run 43 km on a one hundred percent mountain terrain, with a positive ascent of 2.325 m and a total of 4.650 m of accumulated altitude. The challenge started at 8.30 a.m. from Plaça Sa Vinya in Es Capdellà, the gateway to one of the most emblematic places of the Serra de Tramuntana, the Galatzó Public Estate, the area where most of the the race took place.

The first mountainous obstacle to overcome in the morning was the most demanding, the emblematic Puig de Galatzó (1.027 metres). Once the first summit was crowned, the most technical part of the race, runners began a steep descent to face the second important ascent of the day, which would take them to the top of Sa Mola de s'Esclop (927 metres). From there, the tour continued towards the houses of the Galatzó public estate. A few kilometres from the public estate was the last demanding ascent, Ses Planes. Once the ascent was completed, the descent began towards the starting point and also the finish line, located in Plaça de Sa Vinya in the pretty village of Es Capdellà.
