"This year we again have an enrolment record and we are very satisfied with it, because it means that the race has been consolidated. La Baifo Extreme is a motivating and dynamic event, satisfying for us not only because it was born and raised in the municipality of La Oliva, but because each year has a solidarity purpose, "said the Councillor for Sports, Gleiber Carreño, noting that this time a part of the registration goes to the association Alejandro Da Silva, who works for childhood leukaemia.

Of the 400 adult participants, "more than half are from outside the island, which demonstrates the acceptance that the race has in just four years, and the potential that this municipality has in the organization of sport tourism Events", valued the mayor of La Oliva, Isaí Blanco.

Jonay Marín stressed that "from the Al Máximo Sports Club we are very happy. The registration quota has been completed two weeks before the test, and we have 330 participants in the standard race, one hundred girls and boys in the Baifito Extreme, and 70 enrolled in the Elite category, including OCR Masters champions, the Spanish league of obstacle courses ".

On the evolution of the event, Marín said that the Baifo Extreme "began as a participatory and fun race", but that he has listened to the demands of the participants to become increasingly demanding. "This year the finisher medal will already have value in itself."
