In its website you can read…
The goal behind the creation of Haría Extreme was to run, and keep running.
Haría is a small town in the north of Lanzarote that dreamed to show its spectacular natural places to the most curious runners throughout their mountains.
We do not have large massifs but what we do have are majestic and thrilling cliffs, with technical and volcanic terrain, with wild coast, with lava and sea, heat and fire…
It is a great definition of what does this race mean. To the residents runners it is like a party, a race that goes through the area where they have been training. To the foreign runners this is a great opportunity to discover other face of Lanzarote
