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…
