Starting before dawn at the Fuencaliente lighthouses on the ocean front, the course follows in part the “Gran Recorrido” trail GR 131, ascending over the black slippery volcanic sand, through Los Canarios to El Pilar. From here, the race opens out to climb along the crest outlining the skyline to the highest point on the island, the Roque de los Muchachos,at 2,421m. From here, a steep descent to Tazacorte beach is followed by a last climb alomg a canyon and through banana plantations to the finish line in Los Llanos de Aridane where the runners are welcomed by thousands of enthusiastic spectators. Transvulcania is considered one of the toughest trail running races in the world, with 74.33 km and 4,350m of positive climb and 4,057m downhill.
