We distribute a specific map of the sport that includes the area where the checkpoints are, and after a short briefing the participant sets off to discover the streets, gardens, nooks and crannies of the city.”
Alone or in a group, walking or running, everyone chooses the route they want, and how they want to do it. There is no age limit or number of entries. Registration is free but compulsory, includes insurance and map offer.
