Some of the best runners on the planet will have the opportunity to wear the bib of the Transgrancanaria HG for the first time in its 21st edition. Every year, the island receives a wide elite field of world trail running. This year, illustrious runners will debut in the event that will undoubtedly raise the prestige of the event.

The presence of the athlete from the Balearic Islands, Tofol Castanyer, has been celebrated by everyone. Castanyer is considered one of the best long-distance athletes in history.  In his second race of the season, he will debut in the Transgrancanaria to test himself at age 47 in the distance of 65 kilometres of the Advanced. The Team Salomon runner stands out because of his spectacular record, which includes a second place in the UTMB or a victory in the CCC.

The 128-kilometer Classic will welcome for the first time some of the most outstanding trail runners on an international level. The powerful women’s category will be formed by the already confirmed debuts of Mimmi Kotka and Audrey Tanguy, as well as the 2016 Western States champion Kaci Lickteig, coming from the United States. In addition, the event will have the presence of the champions of the recent Hong Kong 100 Ultramarathon and current leaders of the Ultra-Trail World Tour, Peiquan You and Fuzhao Xiang.

In the Transgrancanaria Marathon we will also experience the debut a great number of elite athletes.
