The Place

The eighth edition of the UTCB will start and finish at the El Bosque Convention Center (ref “Restaurante El Bosque” in front of URB. El Pinar). There will be a parking area within the facilities, so we recommend you to park in an appropriate place away from the event area, not obstructing the exit and entrance of runners. The starting point is 15 minutes from the Plaza de Armas. The easiest way to get there is by cab or in your own vehicle. (In the case of coming with your own vehicle, please respect the parking place assigned by the organization).

WEATHER

The race will take place from July 29th to July 2nd, usually these days dawn with a temperature that fluctuates between 6-10° degrees between 5:00 and 7:00 A.M. For the 50km runners, a windbreaker is mandatory, so they will be able to use it in case the temperature is lower and it is a cold morning. The probability of rain for these June days is low but we cannot rule out a rainy day or a muddy terrain in case it rained the day before. Daytime temperatures until 2:00 – 4:00 P.M. fluctuate between 18-23C° during this time. We could reach temperatures near 25° C in parts of the route.
