The Gimeno Group company, expert in the management of the integral water cycle, has reinforced its commitment to Penyagolosa Trails, uninterrupted since 2017.
Penyagolosa Trails, to be held between October 15 and 17, 2021, is one of the most emblematic sports events in the province of Castellón, with a national and international outreach. It counts with 22 editions of the 60 km Marató i Mitja (MiM) and 9 editions of the 110 km Castelló – Penyagolosa (CSP) race. Since 2017 it has been supported by FACSA as a Premium partner.
Promoting sports and their values of respect, effort, and tolerance are fundamental pillars of FACSA’s social policy. The support that FACSA provide to various sports initiatives, to the construction of a Sports City in Castellón, and to the creation of CF Fomento Castellón are all proof of it.
Besides, the agreement between Penyagolosa Trails and FACSA also has a sustainable aspect through the actions of FOBESA, which is also a company of Grupo Gimeno. FOBESA will make the selective separation of waste during the Penyagolosa Trails races possible, with the installation of special bins made of cardboard throughout the route. This initiative will favour the correct separation of all waste into different parts, such as light packaging or paper and cardboard, among others, to subsequently facilitate their correct management.
It is worth noting that in 2017 Penyagolosa Trails was certified by the UNE-EN ISO 20121:2013 standard, regarding sustainable systems of event management, and became the first international trail event with this recognition, which made possible the adoption of a series of measures and good practices that are still in place today.
