A friend of mine, Pere, is hosting the “FART” Ultra Marathon, yes that’s right F.A.R.T, Formentera All Round Trail, March 3rd 2012. This is its inaugural year and the course looks awesome! It is a 72K course that follows the coastline of the island. If you have not been to Formentera, it is amazingly beautiful, turquoise waters, beautiful beaches, great food, friendly people, and the history of the island is incredible! Website
Check out these photos . . . Doesn’t it look like a cool course?
It is not known for it mountains, but it is not flat. It is perfect.
Look at these waters . . . .
On the island, you will find five defense towers that were built in the XVIII century to protect the island against pirates and you run around at least one of the towers.
