The WAA Ultra 360º The Challenge Gran Canaria opens registrations this Wednesday, March 15th. The 250-kilometre self-sufficiency mountain race will once again welcome the world’s best ultra-distance athletes, who will discover the incredible landscapes of Gran Canaria, between the 15th and 19th of November. Only the first 100 adventurers to sign up will be able to enjoy this unique race, which is now in its eighth edition.
Arista Eventos, the race organiser, is already outlining the route, which will run through almost every village on the island. The circuit, which will remain secret until ten days before the race is held, will have no signage, so participants will have to use a GPS device or maps provided before the start of the race to find their way around.
The self-sufficient competition will once again offer monetary prizes for both men and women. Registrations, limited to the first one hundred runners to sign up, will be available on the website www.360thecallenge.com from next Wednesday, 15 March, at 12.00 a.m. Canarian residents will be able to take advantage of a 30% off the price and the possibility to pay in instalments will be offered once again.
The WAA 360º The Challenge Gran Canaria is organised by Arista Eventos and sponsored by Cabildo de Gran Canaria with Turismo Gran Canaria and Instituto Insular de Deportes, Gobierno de Canarias with Promotur – Turismo de Islas Canarias, Ayuntamiento de Tejeda, Gobierno de Canarias, WAA Ultra and Fred Olsen Express, as well as the support of Pro Vital, Gofio La Piña and 226ERS.
