The hero of the last Transvulcania, Thibaut Garrivier, returns to La Palma

“Transvulcania was my first international victory so I will remember it all my life, especially its finish line”

Nor will I forget the incredible finish line with the public cheering for you.” The French also keep good memories of La Palma, stating that “the island is really beautiful and ideal also to spend time before and after the race.”

The runner of the Hoka One One team, which after winning the Transvulcania Ultramarathon made second in the mythical CCC and third in TNF Endurance Challenge California 50 Mile, returns to the island to fight for the Vertical Kilometer and Half Marathon, although he promises to “return to the Ultramarathon modality of Transvulcania in subsequent editions because the organization and the race are fantastic ”.
