The curtain had not yet come down on the seventh Compressport Trail Menorca Camí de Cavalls but the organising committee were already thinking about repeating the event in 2019.
No one wanted to miss the closing ceremony and the presentation of the awards, held in Ciutadella’s Canal Salat function room. 1,500 participants, their supporters and members of the organising committee wished each other an emotional "see you soon".
The finish line was closed very early on Sunday morning, as planned, once the last runners had arrived. In the more than 40 hours of race activity, there were no major incidents among the competitors. All minor injuries and accidents were dealt with promptly and professionally by members of the emergency teams.
The midday ceremony began with an emotional tribute to José Márquez, a runner who had signed up for the race but who died before he was able to participate in it.
The award ceremony itself then took place. Sponsors’ representatives were in attendance including: Jordi Solé (Compressport); Elena Sánchez (Caixabank); Isidro Cobas (Coca-Cola); and Laura Anglada, Marta Marquès and José López (Ciutadella town councillors). Five races comprised the 2018 Compressport Trail Menorca Camí de Cavalls. The top three athletes in each event were cheered by the large audience as they walked (as best they could) to their podium. The loudest ovations were reserved for the joint winners of the men’s 185 km race, Antoine Guillon and Pere Lluís Garau, and the winner of the women’s race, Tina Ameller.
The ceremony came to a close with a video summary of the race edited in record time by the producer covering the event.
