Race entries for Transgrancanaria HG 2022 will open on May 20

The event will be held from March 4th to March 6th on an island that will host the 23rd edition of Transgrancanaria

Transgrancanaria HG is already setting its sights on 2022. The remarkable ‘Invictus’ edition is now behind us, where the event was successfully held with exhaustive health measures that allowed the race to go ahead with nearly two thousand runners. Today, with more than eleven months to go, the organization is already working on a new adventure with the aim that the conditions will allow the returning of a party-spirit event to the island.

Transgrancanaria is already scheduled for next year. On the weekend of March 4th to March 6th, the event will celebrate its 23rd edition, a benchmark that places it among the pioneers and longest-running events in the world. The event will not include the 360º challenge, which will take place in November. This way, Transgrancanaria will focus on its most common distances: Classic, Advanced, Marathon, Starter, Promo and Kids.

The following date to highlight on the calendar is the registration opening. On Thursday, May 20th, the period for the race entries will open through the official website of the race. As in past years, the organization will provide an initial discount on registration fees, as well as discounts for canarian residents.

Last edition of the Transgrancanaria HG was a turning point for the event: fewer participants, allowing a better care for the runner and less overcrowding on the trails; and health measures that improved the safety of all the people involved in the event. The organization wants to continue in this action line, so registration will be limited to a lower number than previous editions.

Despite the decrease in the number of competitors, the impact of Transgrancanaria is still growing. The broadcasting of a live-streaming during the race was followed all over the world, with more than 70,000 viewers during the 16 hours of live coverage. In addition, the inclusion of the event in official calendars such as the Spartan Trail World Championship or the RFEA guarantees that Gran Canaria will be the main focus of media attention for trail running.

Over next weeks, the organization will provide more information about possible new features for the 2022 edition, which registration will be open from May 20th.
