The 2015 PLATANO DE CANARIAS TRANSVULCANIA keeps on growing. For this reason, we keep on improving the Training Camp, which in its second year will once again feature renowned professionals in the international world of trail running.
This camp will be held at the Princess Hotel in Fuencaliente (the official hotel of the race) during Holy Week 2015, from Wednesday April 1st to Sunday April 5th. We will take advantage of this holiday week to enjoy the incomparable setting of the island of La Palma, not just the trail running enthusiasts themselves, but also their families and friends. The Princess Hotel in Fuencaliente will offer special prices for companions who want to enjoy a 4 day vacation, with full board, so they can spend a few days relaxing in one of the best hotels on our island.
Two of the best current professional runners will lead the Camp, the American Yeray Durán (winner of TRANSVULCANIA 12) and Brazilian Fernanda Maciel (from the team THE NORTH FACE International), who will share their experiences, both professional and personal, in this world which continues to gain followers. These few days will hold a full schedule of activities: physical training, of course, plus lectures and round tables with professional runners, sports doctors, physiotherapists, personal trainers and nutritionists of great prestige, and a few surprises which we have prepared.
