After the announcement of the race entries periods and discounts, the event would like to introduce the track’s modifications which will affect every race in Transgrancanaria. Working together wih the Sports Board of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, the race will try to improve the race experience for the runners according to their feedback and to the needs of the different towns involved.
