A vertiginous and challenging ascent with spectacular views.
Playa de Tazacorte
The Vertical Challenge of Transvulcania by UTMB® starts at the Playa del Puerto de Tazacorte (0 m.), and continues along the emblematic GR-131, in the opposite direction to the route of the Ultramarathon. In this section, the trail climbs up the cliff face of El Time to the Mirador de la Punta (250 m). There you will enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of Tazacorte and its coastline.
Athletes must carry the mandatory equipment at all times during the race. You should be prepared for random checks on the course. If you are missing any item you will receive a time penalty and may not be allowed to continue the race.
