Transgrancanaria 2023, which will be held from 22-26th of February, has reached the barrier of 500 participants in the first 48 hours of the the registration period. The Marathon is the race with the highest amount of race entries sold, with over 200 runners, a 40% of the total registered.

The international field is already granted for the most emblematic trail running race in the Canary Islands. 24 different nationalities are represented after 48 hours, with a special mention to the Polish runners – a 6,5% of the total amount of runners -, the British with a 6% and the French with a 5%.

The runners in Transgrancanaria 2023 will come from allover the world. Participants from Chile, Canada, Peru or Paraguay have already entered in the next edition and will be in Gran Canaria next February, as well as a great sample from the Scandinavian region: Finland, Norway and Sweeden. 68% of the race entries sold have been bought from runners coming out of the Canary Islands.

The most popular race within the event is the Marathon, which has already sold out more than 200 bibs. This race will have significant changes, as it will be held on Friday, 24th February. The start line will be located at Tejeda, where the runners will begin the famous climb to Roque Nublo and the descent to Maspalomas. A total of 45 kilometers with over 1.850 meters of positive elevation and 3.000 meters of drop.

The discount period will be available until the 10th of November in every race. Besides, those who want to register in the Classic and Advanced races, have the chance to pay their race entry in installments.

The new agenda of the event is as follows: El Gigante Vertical Kilometre will kick off on Wednesday with a demanding 5.3 kilometre climb between El Valle de Agaete and Tamadaba. The following day, the two short races will be held in Tejeda: the Promo, of 12 kilometres, will start from Artenara and the Starter, of 24, from Tunte. The summit town will also be the protagonist on Friday when next year it will become the starting point for the runners of the Marathon, who will have to face 45 kilometres until they cross the finish line in the Parque Sur de Maspalomas. On the same day, at midnight, the Classic runners will run the 126 kilometres between Las Canteras and Maspalomas. The last of the starts will take place on Saturday from Agaete, which six years later will once again host a Transgrancanaria race with the Advanced modality, which next year will increase its distance to 80 kilometres.
