Naviera Armas, a leading shipping company in the Canary Islands, will be the main sponsor of Transvulcania. The event’s official name will become “Transvulcania Naviera Armas 2016” and every single participant in any of its races will get a free return ticket to sail to La Palma. An additional connection from Tenerife during the big weekend and complimentary free tickets to the rest of the Canaries for those runners who already live on La Palma are also part of the sponsorship deal.
The offer, whose details will be known in the coming weeks, will apply to those participants with a confirmed entry in any category (Ultramarathon, Marathon, Half Marathon and Vertical Kilometer), regardless of their nationality and place of residence.
It doesn’t even matter from which of the Canary Islands are they departing from, nor the number of their travel companions. In fact, every single person travelling with a registered runner will also benefit from a discount.
Additionally, Naviera Armas will reinforce the service, adding a supplementary ferry connection from Tenerife one day before the race and returning one day after. This will be the first instance of a service long in demand.
