The registered participants of Transvulcania 2017 will enjoy free return tickets to travel to compete in La Palma from any place inside the Canary Islands during the weekend in which the event takes place. This is possible thanks to the agreement between Naviera Armas and the Organization of the race.
This way, the transport company will repeat for the second consecutive year as the main sponsor of Transvulcania, which will be renamed as Transvulcania Naviera Armas 2017.
The presentation event of this sponsorship agreement was attended by the President of the La Palma Island Council, Anselmo Pestana; the Sports Counsellor of the Island, Ascensión Rodríguez, and the Naviera Armas representative Héctor Rojas.
Anselmo Pestana thanked the transport company for renewing its trust in this sporting event, which is “so positive for the dissemination and promotion of the natural spaces, forest areas and the highest peaks of the island.” In the same way, he wished good luck to all the runners that will travel to La Palma from all over the world.
Ascensión Rodríguez remembered that this edition will be historic for Transvulcania for several reasons, but especially “for being the first time that new places are set up for modalities like the Ultra or the Marathon, due to the high demand that we had after announcing 100% of occupation in those distances.”
Héctor Rojas underlined the compromise of the Company with the race and with all the registered athletes, “whom we aim to facilitate their trip to La Palma, so they only have to focus on meeting their Transvulcania challenge.”
The 2017 edition is the one with the higher number of participants in the Transvulcania history. For this reason, in anticipation of the high number of runners that will travel to La Palma and due to the success of this initiative in the last year, Naviera Armas will offer again a special connection from Tenerife during the Transvulcania weekend in order to cover this demand.
In this manner, a ship with special hours will depart from Tenerife the day before the race, returning the day after the event.
The details of the offer will be known within the next weeks and it will be applicable to all the Transvulcania participants confirmed in any modality (Ultramarathon, Marathon, Half Marathon and Vertical Kilometer).
Free ticket for the people from La Palma
The runners from La Palma that are taking the start in Transvulcania will be provided with a free return ticket to any Canary Islands destination within six months after the launching date of the campaign.
The ticket exchanging period will be available to all participants between March 15th and May 15th through the exclusive space of Transvulcania on the website of Naviera Armas. Besides, you can solve any question by calling the user assistance center on 902 456 500.
Finally, it must be emphasised that all those accompanying the participants of Transvulcania Naviera Armas 2017 will enjoy a 10% discount on their tickets, regardless of the island in which they start their trip nor the number of people travelling with them.
