In Transvulcania you will find a route as hard as spectacular. The well-known Ruta del Bastón will give you the sensation of flying over the National Park of La Caldera de Taburiente, leaving the incredible sea of clouds under your feet during the climb to Roque de los Muchachos.

 

All this while you are competing with the best ultra trail runners of the world. So, are you ready? Choose between Half Marathon, Marathon, Ultra Marathon or KM Vertical and prepare yourself to enjoy a wonderful sight…but also get ready for this amazing challenge.

 

 

As a Ultramarathon, Transvulcanica has been part of the Skyrunner World Series since 2012. In fact, it is the race that opens the season of The International Skyrunning Federation (ISF).

 

Transvulcania is also included in the Skyrunner National Series and it scores in both Ultra Series (Ultramarathon) and Vertical (Vertical Km.) modalities.

 

In 2014, the Vertical Kilometer of Transvulcania became an official race of the Vertical Series, organized also by the ISF.
