Road to Behobia

Prepare for the B/SS

We have created a "Road to Behobia" to support you in your way to the Virtual BSS and the Behobia - San Sebastián race.

Three races - 5km, 10km and 15km, to which you can register for free, and which will take place in september 11, september 25 and october 16 respectively, although each person can complete the different distances whenever they want.

A draw will be held for each "Road to Behobia" distance the day after each race among all the people who complete the distance within the deadline. They will be raffled:

  • 1 bib number for the Behobia - San Sebastián 2022.
  • 1 bib number for the 2022 Virtual BSS.
  • 1 books "La meta está en Itaca" (Álber Vázquez).

  • KM 4
    After passing Arretxe Height at km 3.4 the road slopes gently downwards, leaving Irun behind.
  • KM 5
    You continue downwards; a good opportunity to catch your breath before the ascent to Gaintxurizketa.
