The next edition already has more registered than the participants who took the game in the last edition of 2023
Transvulcania begins to regain its shine. Proof of this is that in just over two months since the opening of registrations, the race of La Palma Island has already exceeded 2,000 registered people, coming from the five continents, among its four competitive modalities, surpassing, with less than five months until its celebration, the participants who took part in its last edition in May 2023.
The objective of bringing the event closer to the popular runner and making room for the local people is having results, and the queen race of the island aims to return to the highest level at which it was in previous editions, attracting the best trail runners to the island on the international scene, but without leaving aside the popular runners from the Canary Islands and from Palma, who are the ones who have made the event grow, edition after edition, with their loyalty.
The fourteenth edition is approaching and recovers its usual routes, the classic “Ruta del bastón” from El Faro de Fuencaliente to the finish line in Los Llanos de Aridane; the Marathon from the El Pilar Refuge to the Puerto de Tazacorte; the Half Marathon, from the Fuencaliente Lighthouse to the El Pilar, as well as its explosive Vertical Kilometer, which also recovers its original route from the Port of Tazacorte to the finish line of the Forest Tower of El Time. All in order to bring the race closer to the people of La Palma and recover the routes that made the race internationally known.
Also note that as of January 1, 2024, registration prices will increase until places are filled, specifically the Ultramarathon will cost 90 euros for residents and 110 for non-residents; the Marathon, 60 and 80; the Average, 55 and 75; the Junior Media, 20 and 30, and the Vertical Kilometer, again, will retain the 30 euros fee regardless of where the runner is based.
The president of the Cabildo of La Palma, Sergio Rodríguez, highlights that the commitment of the insular Institution is to return the race to the true protagonists, who are the participants and the local people of the Island. “They are the ones who set up a race unique in the world, and theirs is the future so Transvulcania be once again be recognized as unique,” highlights the president.
