Transvulcania somos tod@s
One of the most special events of Transvulcania is the race for the disabled.
Around 150 people belonging to various associations of disabled people from La Palma run through the streets of Los Llanos de Aridane under the slogan "Transvulcania somos todos@s" (Transvulcania we are all) to finish crossing the finish line that the runners of the other races will cross shortly after.
Transvulcania somos todos@s not only integrates, but also shows society that we are all important, giving people with intellectual disabilities the value and prominence they deserve.
"It is becoming more and more common for mountain races to take into account runners with some kind of disability. Sometimes parallel races are organised especially for them. In others, they are integrated as another athlete", say the Padisbalta Association.
The aim of the Asociación Padisbalta is to promote, encourage and develop the capacity of people with disabilities and their families and their integration into society.
