HOW TO GET HERE
The Marcha starts in Valencia Marina in the Port of Valencia, next to Veles e Vents, and runs through striking scenery in eastern Spain.
The most demanding route, over 190km, will take participants up l’Oronet, Alto de Segart and Chrivilla and then back down the other side of the first before returning to the city. The 105km route includes the first two passes. The 76km route will also climb up to the first.
