This weekend, Gran Canaria is once again hosting one of the toughest mountain trail contests on the annual circuit and will host some of the best riders in the world. This 20th anniversary is an important step that places it among the pioneers and the oldest in the world. The event will not include, in March, the 360º challenge, which now becomes independent and will take place from November 24 to 28, 2022. This Transgrancanaria event will focus on its most common distances: the Classic, Advanced, Marathon, Starter, Promo and Children’s Contest. Nearly 4,000 participants from 60 nationalities will race this weekend and some will meet for the first event of the Spartan Trail World Championship circuit in its Ultra Trail through the mountains of Gran Canaria.
“The Parque Sur de Maspalomas will be the finish line for all distances, so with the exception of a busy weekend in this area as well as some restrictions. There will also be street closures at various points of passage, for example in Tejeda”
