How to get to the Start

TRAIN + SHUTTLE: Renfe and EuskoTren - Special ticket (*)

For the purchase of the ticket to get to the starting line, you need to know the line and station you want to use since there are two different train operators, Euskotren and Renfe, so there are two different tickets.

(*) Warning:Any ordinary train ticket that takes you to the start, purchased at any station in Gipuzkoa, will be valid to board the shuttle bus, upon presentation of your race bib number. Therefore, it is not necessary to come to San Sebastián to buy the special ticket. Example: Price of the ordinary ticket for the Zarautz-Ficoba route costs approximately €2.75 and will be valid to board the shuttle bus.
