TITAN EFFECT

With 17 years old, Pablo Antuña is facing the Gaes Titan Desert by Garmin for the first time, being the youngest competitor at the race. With him, other 611 participants are facing the challenge, but one of them is very special. Benigno Redruello, who at his 70 years old, passes him with a 53 years difference.  What does the race represent for each one of them? Different concerns in a race with no limits.

The Gaes Titan Desert by Garmin race countdown begins. How do you face this edition being the youngest and the most veteran of the race?

P.A.- It´s going to be my debut at the Titan, but also my first time facing a challenge with this characteristic. I am very excited, but I´m taking this race with a lot of patience.

B.R.- Illusion and hope are the words that best describe how I´m feeling the days before the race. I will take the start with a lot of respect due to its hardness.

Experience facing youth. What do you believe will benefit you and what might prejudice you with your ages?

P.A.- I believe my young age will benefit me regarding the recuperation between stages. I think it is going to be easier and faster for me to recuperate. What I believe is my biggest threat is my lack of experience.

B.R.- At my 71 years old, experience, knowledge, and calmness are my best allies. On the other hand, I´m conscience that age doesn´t forgive, but I´m fighting against it.

Why did you choose a challenge such as the Gaes Titan Desert by Garmin? What are you most passionate about this great challenge?

P.A.- I chose to face this challenge because last year I followed the race to see my father´s evolution in companion with some others. It was such a nice experience, that I wanted to experience it again as a participant. What I feel most passionate about is to face this race with by father who is also participating this year. 

B.R.- Because it is unique. This is going to be my fourth Titan after competing in 2013, 2014 and 2015´s editions.

Which is your main goal for the next Gaes Titan Desert by Gramin edition?

P.A.- To give my all. Giving my 100%, and of course, trying to finish it with my team, the Titanlux. 

B.R.- To finish, to finish and to finish.
