The Tranvulcania by UTMB® Roque Promesas is a race which covers part of the last 28 km of the Ultra.

From the top of the island, on the Roque de Los Muchachos, in what is one of the highest starts of a race of this distance, to the finish line in Los Llanos de Aridane. The Roque Promesas runs along part of the edge of the Caldera and descends very steeply almost to sea level in just 28 kilometres, so technique is of particular importance, as well as fitness.

The short version of Tranvulcania by UTMB® has a positive difference in altitude of 840 metres and a negative difference in altitude of 2,932 metres over a length of 28 kilometres. All of this, bordering La Caldera de Taburiente and descending to contemplate the beautiful panoramic view of the port and the beach of Tazacorte, always with the imposing Pico Bejenado covered in pine trees as a backdrop.
