Entries open for Anaga Solidarity Trail 

The Anaga Solidarity Trail has opened the registration period for its seventh edition.

This non-competitive mountain race, organised by the Santa Cruz Sustainable Foundation, will be held on December 23th over 14 kilometres.

The event consists of the ascent and descent to the Pico del Inglés from Valleseco.

Councillor for the environment, Carlos Correa, explained that the race “takes place through an environment without equal in Santa Cruz, along 14 kilometres and with 1,011 metres of positive height gain and 1,016 metres of negative height, an average gradient of 11, 5% in the increases and 11.9% in the areas of descent, although there are some points where these values reach even 50%”.

Councillor for Sports, Verónica Meseguer, said that this race “promotes sports of a popular nature, saying goodbye to the year in Santa Cruz through the practise of sport both by federated athletes and those who are not. It is not about competing but about sharing, about enjoying together for a solidary purpose”.

The test will start at 9am from the facilities of the Island Sports Centre Tenerife (Cidemat) in Valleseco and to participate it will be essential to donate a toy before taking the exit.

The money raised with the donations in this year’s edition will be allocated to the Parkinson’s Association.
