The event will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year as one of the pioneer trail running races in the world
This Thursday, at midday, the registration has begun with an initial discount period
The great day has arrived. The path to the 20th anniversary of Transgrancanaria begins today with the registration opening for the 2022 edition. The island’s legend keeps growing with a race that has placed its name between the world’s majors. Transgrancanaria, a dream that started two decades ago, maintains a great desire to offer an event that can be enjoyed for many months: from the moment that you decide to participate to the one that you cross the finish line in Maspalomas.
The midday of this Thursday, May 20th, the registration period for the race that will be held from the 4th to the 6th of March 2022, has started. As usual, the organization offers an initial discount period, which will last until November. As it has already been announced, the 360º challenge will not be included in the schedule, as it will have an independent date the last weekend of November. Therefore, Transgrancanaria will host its traditional races: Classic, Advanced, Marathon, Starter, Promo and Kids.
Once again, Transgrancanaria wants to have a gesture with the local runners, those who have trusted in the event since 2003. Thus, the organization will apply a 20% discount to the runners who certify their Canarian residency. Besides, with the intention of hosting an inclusive race, the runners with disabilities and their guides will have a 50% discount in the Transcapacidad category.
The race will repeat the 2021 course, hoping that the sanitary conditions permit a normal race with a party spirit. If the terms are positive, the finish line will return to the Maspalomas Lighthouse. Therefore, the Classic race will begin in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on Friday night, with Las Canteras beach as the starting point of the weekend. The action will resume on Saturday from Artenara with the Advanced (65 km), El Garañón with the Marathon (42 km), Tunte with the Starter (30 km) and Ayagaures with the Promo, Youth & Family Trans (17 km).
During the registration form, the runners will have the possibility of hiring some extra services that will complement their participation in Transgrancanaria HG 2022. As a new feature, a Training Camp will be held from the 28th to the 30th of January, hosted in El Garañón with a weekend full of guided trainings, conferences, sharing moments with other runners and the chance to run the Fenix Trail race, that has a course which shares many important sections with Transgrancanaria.
Besides, the runners may acquire during the registration period a special ‘20 years’ hoodie, a luggage service for their bags, the shuttle to the start of the race, the meals for the weekend in Expomeloneras, an extra souvenir bib or a GPS device, which will allow the people to follow the exact position of the runners from home.
The path to the 20 years of Transgrancanaria starts today. The full information can be found in the official website, www.transgrancanaria.net. 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, RS Sonocom and WAA continue as official sponsors.
