From the organization they feel very satisfied with the reception that the test has had, since it has "more than met" the expectations they had as it was a first edition. Regarding the test, it is necessary to highlight the difficulty it has, because it is a long and very demanding race, an aspect mainly linked to the climate of Monegros, although this factor can also be positive in order to attract participants, since many runners they are attracted to these adversities.

San Juan del Flumen has been the place chosen to host this test, due to the suitability it presented for all the tests of the competition, as Javier Solanas pointed out, who also thanked the support that the event had received from the people of the people, in the form of voluntary participation in the organization.

To ensure compliance with these rules, 14 judges will accompany the participants. The deployment to guarantee the safety of the event is also noteworthy: five canoes, a zodiac and a unit of Divers from the Civil Guard in the swamp and two ambulances on the rest of the route.
