Registrations for the Vertical Kilometer are now open

20150112 Bernard DematteisThe registrations for Transvulcania’s Vertical Kilometer are open as of today. The race, part of the Skyrunning National Series, will take place on the 7th of May and follows exactly the same track as in 2014. It starts at the black volcanic beach of Tazacorte (0 m) and climbs up to Torre del Time (1,160 m). It is a bird eye’s view from the stunning wall of El Time, the northern boundary of Caldera de Taburiente National Park.


In 2014, the absolute winner was the Italian Bernard Dematteis, just a tiny bit ahead of his brother Martin and the ever outstanding Kilian Jornet (triple winner of the ISF World Series). They all managed to stop the watch below 50 minutes. In women’s, the top athlete was again Italian: Elisa Desco, closely followed by the Spanish Laura Orgué (eventual winner of the international title) and Azara García de los Salmones.

The first elite runners are already confirming for 2015. The current Spanish champion (FEDME), Jessed Hernández, has already secured his place, while the aforementioned Azara will raise the standard again in the women’s race.


There are only 200 places available.
