CHANGES TO THE GALATZÓ HALF CIRCUIT FOR 2023
From the 2023 edition of the race we will have a NEW and SPECTACULAR route. The objective is that the participants of the HALF will also face a SUMMIT, in this case, “Sa Mola de s’Esclop.”
The direction of the route has been reversed in comparison to previous editions and improvements have been made to the itinerary. Participants will walk the ancestral path of “Pas des Cosi” uphill, whereas previously they did it downhill. This change will also help to reduce erosion in the area.
The modifications made to the GALATZÓ HALF route serve to make it more attractive, more challenging and technical, with an emblematic summit and also somewhat more demanding.
Ascent: 1133 m (positive elevation gain) approx. (aproximado)
Descent: 1133 (negative elevation gain) approx.
Accumulated: 2266 m (aprox.)

The GALATZÓ HALF is a trail race designed for the enjoyment of mountain lovers who practice half-distances. It’s also ideal for those trail-running rookies looking for their first experience in a long distance. The course runs 100% on mountain trails and it starts and ends at Sa Vinya Square, in Es Capdellà. The course of the half marathon goes through some of the trails that connect the amazing Finca Pública de Galatzó.
