The march and mountain race "XI Gegant de Pedra", organized by the Club d'Atletisme d'Ondara and the Department of Sports of the City Council of Ondara, was held by the Sierra de Segària.
The winners in the long race in this edition were Ben Mounsey, in masculine, and Aida Pérez, in feminine. The test proceeded normally, since the dense fog that accompanied from early in the morning did not affect at any time the visibility on the mountain.
A total of 571 people finished the eleventh edition of this event (188 walkers of 14,5 km, 192 runners of 14,5 kilometers, and 191 runners of 21 kilometers). The registration was a total of 640 people (higher than last year).
The dominator in the long distance was Ben Mounsey, from Caldey Valley, who finished the test in a time of 1: 52.37, second place went to Nasio Cardona, from CA Llebeig Xàbia, with a mark of 1: 59.49, and the third place went to Frank De la Cruz, from Entrena Benissa, with a record of 2.02.02.

The trophy delivery took place in the Municipal Shelter area, where the Mayor of Ondara, José Ramiro, and the Councilor for Sports of Ondara, Mar Chesa, were responsible for delivering the awards, along with representatives of the Athletics Club of Ondara and the hostel.
The Councilor for Sports thanked the participants for their assistance and the collaborators for their contribution to the test. He also congratulated the Ondara Athletics Club for its magnificent organization. It should be remembered that from the Ondara Athletics Club, as already reported in the presentation of the event, it is valued that this edition of this year 2020 is the last of Gegant de Pedra, given the complicated organization that it entails.
