II MOUNTAIN ECO MARATHON OF LA DONAIRA
The II edition of La Donaira Mountain Eco Marathon is a sports event that is committed on the conservation of the environment through sport. The race will take place on November 21, 2020.
What is new about this edition is that we will carry out in parallel a Trail of 19 km with a positive climb gradient of 900 meters and a Mini Children’s Marathon in Montecorto (Málaga), a town in Malaga that will host the start and finish line. And the Eco Marathon with 42 km will have a positive climb gradient of 2000 meters.
The Eco Marathon runs through La Donaira estate, La Dehesa Biodinámica and the municipal areas of Montecorto (Málaga) and El Gastor (Cádiz). And it is one of the few sports races that awards cash prizes:
1st Prize: 400 euros
2nd Prize: 200 euros
3rd Prize: 100 euros

How did the idea come about? Because of the strong concern for the future that we are going to leave for our children. With this premise of raising awareness about the importance of conserving our natural environment, we think that through sport, it would help to raise awareness of a global problem that affects all areas of our lives.
Why is it an Eco Marathon? We will try to reduce as much as possible the plastic and the impact on the environment, so most of the materials used on the route will be ecological.
