On Sunday, November 20, the 2nd edition of Corriols de l'Àvia will take place in Lloret de Mar, a cycling event for leisure and tourist-cultural purposes organized by the Penya Ciclista Lloret and supported by the Catalan Cycling Federation (FCC). The sports event will have two distances, one of 26 kilometers and another of 35 kilometers, which can be done both on mountain bikes and on electric mountain bikes.
The participants of the race will be able to choose between two routes:
- Short distance: 26 kilometers (positive elevation gain of 700/800 meters)
- Long distance: 35 kilometers (positive elevation gain of 1,000/1,100 meters)
Along the route there will be several liquid and solid aid stations, located at the points marked on the race route meter. The itinerary will run along roads and greenways and can be carried out under possible adverse weather conditions. The route will be marked and signposted for the sports event, so the use of GPS is not necessary.
Registration for the Corriols de l'Àvia is open and will end on Sunday, November 13 at 11:59 p.m. or when the available quota of places is reached, which is 500 participants.
The price is €18 for federated participants of the Catalan Cycling Federation (FCC) or the Royal Spanish Cycling Federation (RFEC), and €21 for non-federated participants (who will have to fill out the one-day license that includes the insurance provided by the organization).
The minimum age to participate in the event is 10 years. Minors will have to carry a written authorization from their father, mother or legal guardian when they are allowed to participate.
There is no possibility of pre-registration and payment when picking up the number, so only previously paid registrations will be accepted. Registrations are strictly personal and non-transferable. In case of not being able to participate, the registration fee will not be refunded.
The numbers collection will take place the day before the race, between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. (place pending confirmation), or the same day of the race, between 7:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. at the starting point.
The departure will take place at 9 am at the Water World water park in Lloret de Mar, although the organization reserves the right to make any changes to these times. The race will end in the same place, specifically in the car park.
During the event, the participants will have to comply with the schedules proposed by the organization at the different crossing points. The closing of the first aid station, the point where the two routes deviate, will take place at 12 noon and the closing of the control at the last point will be at 13:00, 4 hours after the start of the event.
The participant who exceeds these times must compulsorily abandon the event in the different cuts of passage or will be excluded from the event.
At the end of the race, the organizers will make available to the participants a Kärcher to clean the bicycles, courtesy of Water World. Prizes will also be awarded for the different categories.
