Transgrancanaria is one of the most famous trail running races in the world. I invite you to join me on this trail running training trip for advanced runners in Gran Canaria, for 1 or more days, to prepare yourself for this amazing race.

The competiton offers 6 different races, for different levels. This programme prepares you for the Marathon (42 km) and Starter (34 km)It is also a great way to discover the natural beauty of the island while improving your trail running techniques. 

The Transgrancanaria has been held on Gran Canaria, in the Canary Islands, since October 2003. Today it is one of the most important events on the trail running world calendar. The next Transgrancanaria race will be held on February 2019. 

For 1 or more days, we will go over an introduction to trail running, race training and sports nutrition. We will also go on detail and analize the different sections of the Transgrancanaria. It is possible to train on one or several stages of the race.

The Marathon has 1.200 meters of positive elevation, within 8 hours of time limit. It is the perfect race if you are a keen runner.  It is a competitive race, following descending trails most of the way. This competition will let you check your physical abilities, helping you decide if you are ready to jump to the next mountain running level. The 42 km route takes you along a spectacular part of the island.

The Starter is a 31 km race, with 750 meters of positive elevation, within a  10-hour time limit. It is suitable for those who enjoy mountain hiking and want to take their first steps into mountain running.
