Statement Transgrancanaria HG

Dear Transgrancanaria runners,

We are in the final countdown working in the last details for our next adventure 🙂 It will be a really special edition, with many new features, but it will be really important to celebrate such an important event which will mean that outdoor sports and the current health situation can live together safely.

We want to send you an update about the current situation in Gran Canaria as we understand that you may have certain doubts and questions about this 2021 edition.

As you may have seen during the last months, the Canary Islands have the best numbers in Spain regarding Covid-19 positive cases in terms of cumulative incidence. The measures taken by the Government of the Canary Islands have been quite effective and the pandemic has not striked as hard as in other regions of Spain and many other countries.

However, as a preventive measure, the Government of the Canary Islands has recently elevated the Alert level to a Phase 3 (red light) until January 31st, with new restrictions which impact several sectors, amongst them ours. Nevertheless, the forecast is optimistic about reducing back the Alert level to Phase 2 (yellow light). In this case, we will be able to organize the race as scheduled with the new health protocols that our company has already tested in 5 races during the past months.

These will be our next steps:

On February 1st we will send a new statement with the information of the new Alert situation in Gran Canaria

  • Should the Alert is reduced to a Phase 2, Transgrancanaria will be held as scheduled and we will send an email to every runner with the health protocol that must be followed during the event.
  • Should the Alert remain in Phase 3, the organization will hold until the next update set by the Government of the Canary Islands to make a final decision about the race’s celebration. If the Alert gets back to Phase 2 before the race of the week, the event will be held as scheduled under the new health protocols.

The organization has constant conversations with the local authorities and we are looking forward to an event which is very important for Gran Canaria and the Canary Islands, as it is a really relevant week to boost the economic resources of the island, now more important than ever.

We understand the uncertainty of those runners who dream to be finishers of Transgrancanaria since a long time ago and who are now in the final stretch of their preparation. We share the same feeling, but we remain optimistic and look forward to the race. We believe that trail running, as it is happening with many other sports despite the alert conditions, must stay alive with the necessary health protocols.

We send you our warmest regards and we will stay in touch with you during the following weeks.
