Transgrancanaria is one of the most internationally recognised sporting events on our islands. It is a mountain race, crossing the island of Gran Canaria, which has been celebrated since 2003. Another of the attractions is the date of celebration, in early March, a season in which enjoying the mild temperatures of the Canary Islands is impossible in other parts of Europe.
The next edition of Transgrancanaria will be held from March 4th to 8th. The topic of this edition is “Trail is Female”, to pay homage to the women participating. Not only are there more female participants each year, but their performance in international races is also improving, entering the top 10 of the ranking.
Through its years of history, Transgrancanaria has gone from 65 to 4,000 participants in its last edition, in March 2019. Also, it is one of the local trials with the most international runners, with 69 nationalities taking part last year.
