The Isla de La Palma Half-Marathon mountain race is less demanding than the Ultramarathon, as it covers the first 26.8km of the latter.
Starting in El Faro of Fuencaliente, and finishing in the El Refugio del Pilar picnic and camping site (El Paso), the Half-Marathon runs through the popular Ruta de los Volcanes (Volcanoe route) However, it is more demanding than it usually is as it is done from the opposite direction, and considerable slopes have to be negotiated over difficult volcanic terrain.
