The course requires a medium technical level. This means that if you control your skates and you are in good shape, you will enjoy. Otherwise, we recommend you to keep on skating so that you can participate next year.

Yes, the bus will pick up all skaters dropping out. We do still not know how much time the Foral Policy will grant us for skaters, but In case it is too short for you, you will be able to improve next time. From Berriro Ere we encourage you to take part in the course, regardless how much distance you are able to skate in your first time because you will enjoy so much of this open route with a fantastic landscape as you go over.
