Back to Maspalomas Lighthouse and changes in the Marathon
Looking ahead to the next edition, the organization is still considering the possibility of moving the finish line to the spectacular site of Faro de Maspalomas (Maspalomas Lighthouse), as it was already done in 2014. The idea behind this is to make it as spectacular and epic possible for the runners to really enjoy theit entry in the finish line.
´Trail is female´ – a new theme for Transgrancanaria 2020
The new motto ´Trail Is Female´ will pay tribute to women and their role in trail running. Not only the participation of women in this discipline has increased, but so has their performance. More and more women are among the top 10 in international rankings. Numbers speak for themeselves – the 2019´s edition marked a record in participation with 25% of women, which means nearly 1,000 female runners who challenged themselves and faced the mountains and cliffs of Gran Canaria.
