The natural environment Gran Canaria has to offer makes its description as “miniature continent” very fitting. The benignity of its climate, stroked by the trade winds, and lack of extreme temperatures, allows the practice of outdoor sports all year round.
SKY GRAN CANARIA ® 2018 is a mountain race that counts with the main race, a 72 km ULTRATRAIL with almost 5,500 metres of positive elevation. In addition, it offers other races that adapt to the different profiles of the runners who will be able to choose a distance according to their capabilities.
SKY GRAN CANARIA ® 2018 traverses Gran Canaria from northwest to southwest beginning in the town of Agaete and finishing in Playa de Mogán. It will run through the highest point of the island – Pico de las Nieves, which rises 1,954 metres above sea level- and the biggest dams of the island, wandering through the municipalities of Agaete, San Bartolomé de Tirajana, Artenara, Tejeda, Vega de San Mateo and Mogán; the latter being the host for this event.
SKY GRAN CANARIA ® 2018 is a race suitable for all types of runners. The gorgeous sceneries the island has to offer will allow your maximum enjoyment.
