Every runner who know the world of the trail running has this date highlighted in his competition calendar. In this race the beauty and the hardness of the island is reflected in every corner.

How did the race come up?

The race took place the first time in 2003, when David Déniz and Fernando González  decided the idea of cross the island like a competition. The first edition took place in October and crossed the island from west to east, starting from the port of Agaete and arriving at the Arinaga beach. The longest modality was 64 km and 78 brave runners faced this hard and experimental race.

In 2008 the race was gaining followers and importance, so riders like Marco Olmo decided to participate in it. Many national and international runners began to take an interest in participating, and the number of participants has been increasing year after year. The things has changed a lot and now the race has around 3,000 runners of more than 70 nationalities and has become a reference worldwide. It is also a tourist attraction for the island of Gran Canaria, due to running in February with spring temperatures can not be done at this time of year in many places in Europe and America.
