Spartan Trail World Championship to award $65,000 at Transgrancanaria HG 2022

The Transgrancanaria HG will hand out 25,000 dollars in 2022 for the second consecutive year, while the circuit will hand out 40,000 dollars for the awards of the 2021 season.

The trophy ceremony of the race will be moved forward to Saturday afternoon, March 5th, when we will find out the winners of the 23rd edition of the race.

Once again this year we will have the excitement of seeing the participants cross the finish line of the Transgrancanaria HG, which this year celebrates its 20th anniversary, a reason why the organisers are planning to celebrate it in style. In the programme of events, that will be presented next week, it is worth mentioning the trophy ceremony, which this year will take place on Saturday, March 5th.

On Saturday afternoon, the prize-giving ceremony of the Transgrancanaria HG will take place in the Parque Sur of Maspalomas. In addition to the trophies of all the modalities, the Spartan Trail World Championship circuit will distribute, for the second consecutive year, 25 thousand dollars to the elite athletes who will occupy the Top 5 in the Classic 126k and Marathon 43k modalities of this edition. The fastest runners on the Trail Ultra circuit will win from $2,500 for the top finishers to $600 for the fifth-place finishers. And in the Trail Run category, prizes will range from $2,300 to $400.

On the other hand, the Spartan Trail World Championship has chosen Gran Canaria to host the awards ceremony of the 2021 edition of the circuit, which will take place on Thursday, March 3, at 10:30 am (Canary Islands time). The event, at which $40,000 will be handed out, takes place at the Vital Suites Hotel in the south of the island of Gran Canaria, close to the sublime natural area of the Maspalomas Dunes.

“One way to support and encourage the professionalisation of elite athletes is to incorporate cash prizes for the runners. Winning a race like the Transgrancanaria is a very important milestone in an athlete’s career, and with this incentive that comes thanks to the Spartan Trail World Championship we give an added value to our event”, explains Carlos Torrent, director of the Transgrancanaria.

In the end-of-season awards of the STWC, 40,000 dollars will be distributed to those elite athletes who have shown the best performance during the past year. The amounts to be distributed range from $3,500 for the top finishers to $800 for the fifth-place finishers. Among the winners are Aurelien Dunand-Pallaz, Antonio Martínez, Ben Kimtai or Jonathan Albon, while in the female category, Azara García de los Salmones, Elisa Desco or Ida Nilsson, among others, stand out.

Transgrancanaria is an event organized by Arista Eventos, with SportHG as the main sponsor, and with the institutional sponsorship of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria – through the Tourism and Sports boards –, Promotur Canary Islands, Maspalomas Costa Canaria and the Town Hall of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The companies Fred. Olsen Express, Amlsport, Expomeloneras and RS Sonocom continue as official sponsors of the race, and this year 226 ERS and the Vital Suites Hotel have also joined the Transgrancanaria family.
