“We’re on a mission to inspire more people to get outside and experience the thrill of trail running and not many events encapsulate this and bring the ultra-running community together more than Transvulcania. This incredible event represents the ultimate test of endurance and determination, and we are excited to partner with TRV to make it even more spectacular for the ultra-running community.” said Carla Murphy, SVP/Global General Manager, adidas TERREX.

Sergio Rodríguez, President of Cabildo de La Palma said, “By adding a partner such as adidas TERREX, we know that the race will recover the essence of what makes it so special and different to any other trail race. We look forward to a successful partnership with adidas TERREX and are excited to have such an established brand on board – one that understands the importance of the event to the local community and trail runners alike.”

As part of the multi-year partnership, adidas TERREX will become the title sponsor of the event. Participants and volunteers from the local running community who help to bring TRV to life will receive branded adidas TERREX apparel.
