Zitoway presents its calendar for 2020
**** BREAKING NEWS: This calendar is strongly in danger because of the international Coronavirus emergency. Stay tuned for changes. Hopefully not many.

Zitoway is an Italian Trail Running organization that has been operating for 20 years in the international market, especially in Africa, Spain and Italy itself.
His specialty is stage tests that combine a vacation part with a sports part.

Different races are part of their calendar and we can divide them into two main groups, the desert ones, 100km in 4 stages and the most fun in sea areas, which are usually 60km in 4 or 5 days.

Below we present the 2020 calendar of this veteran organization.

The FIRST APPOINTMENT is very relaxed and close to home, the Formentera to Run between May 31 and June 7 offers the possibility of running 5 days on the island most spectacular of the Balearic Islands.
Different options Accommodation options, a scooter to move around and 5 perfectly balanced stages are what make up the proposed travel package for this great week and for those who cannot escape all week to enjoy the race, the Zitoway offers the Formentera Trail 21.1 , the last stage of the previous one that can be run independently .

This race is already a classic before the summer and it is normal to complete all the places with what you have to decide in advance if you want to attend.

The year continues and we move on to after the summer with the return to the calendar of a historical race, the 100km del Sahara .
After a difficult period for all international events in Arab countries, finally, little by little you can return to enjoying the desert in capital letters, and with the hashtag #backtosahara, the 100km returns to the beloved desert.

With a slightly more intense program than the original, the 100km of the Sahara consists of a trip to the world of the desert, a suggestive journey through southern Tunisia following a old route of the salt caravans between Douz and Ksar Ghilane with mobile camps set up by the organization that will allow us to experience the desert in all its maximum intensity.

As a commemoration of the 20th birthday of the race, the stages will be 4 of 25km each, as the first edition to end in the Ksar Ghilane oasis where the festival will be held f final with awards ceremony.

The 2020 edition will be held from October 4 to 11 and to celebrate the birthday, a new edition of the 100km No Stop from the Ksar Ghilane oasis to Douz and will also offer the possibility to the most extreme adventurers to run both races under the name of Grand Slam , thus completing 200km.

As there is always a lime and a sand race, the next race on the calendar returns to the sea, this time to the Canary Islands with a Majorera version of the Formentera race, the Fuerteventura to Run .

This race, the youngest on the calendar, has only 4 editions and from October 26 to November 2 it will celebrate the 6th.

Located in the north of the Canary Island, the race covers 4 stages, the towns of Corralejo, Tindaya and Lajares to finish joining forces with the International Half Marathon of the Dunes of Fuerteventura Organized by a local team for ten editions and which will be run by all those registered for Fuerteventura to Run.

As a finishing touch to the calendar and to always end with a big bang, in this case, the 100km of Namib Desert Just finished its 2018 edition is worthy of being called a bombshell.

This race is the perfect combination of luxury and toughness, the sports part is extreme with a complicated terrain with a sandy bottom and high temperatures that make the stages a tough test although they are combined with the stay at the Sossusvlei Lodge one of the hotels with the most quality awards in all of Namibia and where runners can calmly call their wounds and be more than ready for the next day.

Desert, canyons, wide horizons, spectacular sunsets and of course huge dunes will be part of our day to day, along with a multitude of non-dangerous animals that h They will delight everyone and will be the subject of lively conversations at the lodge dinner, famous for the quality of its buffet.

The 2019 edition will be from December 7 to 12.
