The Transgrancanaria is one of the most famous competitions in the world calendar of Trail running. The route crosses the island of Gran Canaria through the most beautiful mountain and coast landscapes. The itinerary makes a circle around the island along 262km, has a total elevation gain of 11.000 metres, and the harshness of the race has made it worth of being a classificatory event for the Ultra Trail de Mont Blanc. From 2003 more than 3.700 athletes from 66 different countries have participated in this great reference for the trail running at international level. Some of them as important as Emelie Forsberg, Zigor Iturrieta, Lizzy Hawker, Sebastien Chaigneau, Ryan Sandes, Pay Capell, Monica Aguilera…
Palm groves, mountains, gullies, summits, beaches, forests, volcanic formations… We have divided the race in two halves that can be done separated or combine them together. This trip will go from the north to the south and will allow us not only to wear out our shoe soles in good part of the settings of the race, but to also combine it with visits to natural sites and must see tourist attractions, like Maspalomas, Puerto de las Nieves, Caldera de los Marteles, Teror and Playa del Inglés. And, of course, we will have time to relax at the beach and to enjoy the unique and delicious local gastronomy…do you fancy it?
It is important to carry a light backpack, so it is recommended to carry just the essential clothes and equipment. If you do not have all the equipment you can rent it, please consult us.
