This resignation at the last minute has been about to mean the cancellation of the Spanish Championship, but finally Águilas decided to organize it, although not on the initially scheduled dates, which is going to cause some damage, since now it will coincide with other tests in different points of Spain. In addition to the elite competition there were classifications in age groups.
