Transgrancanaria HG launches the Vertical Kilometer ‘El Gigante’ in its 2022 edition

A new race joins the Transgrancanaria programme on the 20th anniversary of the event

The vertical kilometer will be held in the municipality of Agaete on the afternoon of Thursday, 3rd March.

Some of the great news of the Transgrancanaria HG 2022 are being revealed. The event, which is already sold out for its five traditional races, is launching a new event: the Vertical Kilometer ‘El Gigante’. This will be the start of the competition, as it will take place on the afternoon of Thursday, 3 March, and will have limited bibs, as the time trial system will be used with individual starts.

With ‘El Gigante’, the Transgrancanaria returns to one of the emblematic municipalities of its twenty years of life, Agaete, and to one of the most spectacular areas of the island, the Tamadaba massif. The start of this new modality will take place in the San Pedro area, and the finish line will be in the recreational area of Tamadaba. The race will have dizzying numbers: more than 1,100 meters of accumulated positive height gain in just 5.5 kilometers, an impressive climb that will demand the maximum from the participants while they enjoy privileged views of Gran Canaria.

The collaboration of the municipality of Agaete has been key for ‘El Gigante’ to become a reality in 2022. For many years, Puerto de las Nieves was the starting point of the Transgrancanaria, and now it will host this Vertical Kilometer.

Registration for the El Gigante will open on Monday, January 3rd, through the official website of the event: Runners already registered in another Transgrancanaria race will have a discount when reserving their number for this new race, which will start at 16:00 on Thursday. More details and the rest of the news that will be introduced in this special edition of the 20 years of the Transgrancanaria will be announced in the coming weeks.
