Half Marathon Transvulcania

Half Marathon Transvulcania

  • 09:00 - 14:00

The Transvulcania Half Marathon is a less demanding mountain race than the Ultramarathon, since it only covers the last 21.93 km of the Ultra.

Starting from the top of the island at the Roque de Los Muchachos to the finish line located in Los Llanos de Aridane, the Half Marathon runs along part of the Caldera rim, at an altitude of almost 2,400 metres and descends very steeply almost to sea level in  just 16.95 kilometres, so technique is very important for this part of the race and the descent requires good physical fitness.

 

The short version of Transvulcania has a cumulative elevation gain of 405 metres,  a cumulative elevation loss of 2,427 metres, and a total elevation change of 2,832 meters in a length of 21.93 kilometres. All this, along the rim of La Caldera de Taburiente and descending to the beautiful panoramic view of the port and beach of Tazacorte, always with the imposing mass of Pico Bejenado covered with pine forests as a backdrop.
