Transgrancanaria 360º info and characteristics:
- Transgrancanaria 360º is an individual, self-sufficiency challenge.
- It is intended to be completed before the time limit the organization will state.
- Participation in this challenge will be strictly individual.
- Participants must dominate some necessary techniques to be accepted in the race: orientation, capability of supporting drastic changes of weather conditions, ability to assist other runners in case of emergency, tolerance to fatigue and lack of sleep and food.
- The course will not be marked. The runners must follow the track that the organization will handle before the race.
- The challenge will be completed in self-sufficiency. Runners must plan their own resting periods and feeding hours. Along the course, they will have basecamps where they will be fed and have the chance to rest.
- Runners can purchase food and beverage in any other stores they have along the course.
- External assistance will only be allowed in the basecamps. Any external assistance the runners receive during the track will be punished.
