Will the route be signposted?
The route of the stages of the race is arrowed. Even so, the use of GPS is mandatory. It is mandatory to follow the track provided by the organization and go through the CP (Control Points) and EH (Hydration Stations).
How many km are the stages?
The four stages of the race have an average distance of about 85 km each, and there may be a stage of 70 km and others of up to 100 km maximum.
When will I know the route?
The tracks of the stages will be sent on November 30th, 2022. The location of the CP and EH will be known the night before each stage.
How will the checkpoints be placed and how many will there be?
In the Titan Desert the refreshment points are called ‘hydration stations’.
On each stage there will be three Hydration Stations, two of them with cold drinks. Hydration stations will not be more than 40 kilometres apart.
They will have water, and two will have isotonic drinks.
The step controls are placed depending on the route of each stage. Although with variations depending on the layout, there will be no more than 3 per stage and their exact coordinates will be announced the day before.
How many aid stations are there?
In the Titan Desert, the aid stations are called HYDRATION STATIONS.
In each stage there are a total of 3 Hydration Stations.
They depend a lot on the route and the characteristics of the stage. But the organization of the Titan Desert plans not to exceed 30 km without Hydration Stations.
They are marked with the initials EH followed by a number (eg EH1, EH2, EH3…).
In addition, prior to departure, each participant receives 1.5 liters of water to fill their bottles and hydration packs.
What is in the Hydration Stations?
Two organization people and room temperature bottled water.
What happens if I abandon a stage or reach the finish line outside the established maximum time?
Participants who drop out in any of the stages or arrive outside the established maximum time will be left out of the general classification. They will be picked up (runner and bicycle) by the sweeper vehicle and transferred to the end of the stage. They will be able to start in the later stages, but their times will not be counted in the general classification. In case of a second abandonment, they will not be able to retake the start of any stage.
