Volunteers from Algaida, Campos, Felanitx, Inca, Lloret, Llubí, Llucmajor, Manacor, Montuïri, Muro, Porreres, Sa Pobla, Santa Eugènia, Santa Margalida, Santanyí, Selva, Ses Salines, Sineu, Sóller, Vilafranca and Santa Maria will support the participants throughout the route from their municipalities.

The DGEI and the 112 Emergency Service (SEIB112) recommend all participants wear the reflective waistcoat and the light that will be provided to avoid accidents throughout the march and also advise them to respect the indications of the organisation and the members of the security forces.

Advice on how to avoid injuries during the march:

One or two hours before walking, lightly massage your feet with a moisturising cream or petroleum jelly.
A few minutes before setting off, stretch your legs.
Wear thick, flexible-soled trainers.
Wear shorts and light, cool clothing.
Carry a fanny pack or small backpack (well attached to the waist or shoulder, avoiding uncomfortable movements for walking). In the backpack, you will carry 1 litre of water, 1 litre of isotonic drink, 1 pair of spare socks, 1 banana, 100 grams of dried fruit, glucose (tablets) and plasters.
Refill water at the refreshment areas, so that you drink approximately 5 litres of water during the entire route (1 litre every two hours of walking).
On arrival, it is advisable to stretch and keep your legs raised to 30 or 40 cm for two minutes.
