Why??

Good question! The news is incomplete indeed.

The reason as stated by the military authorities:
''to commemorate the Ano Santo and combine the efforts of peregrination with military training''.

Over and out,

Oh Sil (belatedly) - I think we saw them march by. I've forgotten where we were - just after Boente maybe... it was a strange but impressive juxtaposition with the camino.

(I tried to upload a pic but it's too large :( )

Santiago "Pilgrimage" and the military....rings a bell...

Ferdinand and Isabella would approve....

One nice thing is that as they will run day and night, they will not deprive less competitive pilgrims of a bed. And that's very good.
