The Transgrancanaria HG 2019 will be held from February 20 to 24. To understand the international impact of Transgrancanaria, runners from up to 62 different countries, of which 2892 are men and 960 women, will venture into the island of Gran Canaria.
Once again, Transgrancanaria 128 km, the most desired race, is crowned as the race with the largest number of participants with a total number of 901, followed by the Marathon with 879 registrations, which surpasses the figures of last year’s event (829). The Advanced comes in third place with 834 participants; the Starter race with 670; the Promo race with 424 runners; the 360º category with 86 participants: a number that indicates how more and more adventurers are aiming to complete this challenge; the Family Trans with 91 participants, of which 74 are adults and 12 young runners.

The Transgrancanaria once again shows that Gran Canaria will once again be the world’s focus for trail lovers. The European Sports Island will host in the coming weeks one of the most important trail races in this discipline. Such is the scope and impact of this event, that some participants will fly from countries such as Kuwait, Nepal or Japan, without forgetting the honoured participation of France and Germany, which lead the total number of runners. It should be noted that the Transgrancanaria is a scoring event for the Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc.
