France and Spain are the two favourites with the highest number of registered runners.
The Maspalomas Lighthouse, an emblematic place will hold the finish line of the next edition of the race
As it has already been advanced by the press, the organization was considering to move the finish line to Faro de Maspalomas and this week it has been confirmed. “It will be a leap in quality for the race for the spectacle that surrounds the Maspalomas Lighthouse, which is located in the touristic center of Gran Canaria”, according to Transgrancanaria´s CEO, Fernando González.
In 2014 the finish line was also taken to the Faro in an edition in which winners Ryan Sandes and Nuria Picas were winners.It was a big success of affluence and atmosphere, given that the Maspalomas Lighthouse is an emblematic place of the island – located a few meters from the sea, and it is the perfect scenario to complete the adventure that is for the runners of Transgrancanaria.
The finish line arch will be located in the Maspalomas Lighthouse area and all other race services will be catered from Expomelonera
s Convention Center. The organization will offer a free shuttle service for runners between the finish line in Faro Maspalomas and Expomeloneras Convention Centre.
