Mountain race much anticipated in Guia de Isora
The Mountain Race of Guía de Isora – Ascent to Tágara on Sunday, March 17th at 9am will open the calendar of major sporting events to be held in 2019 in Guía de Isora.
According to sports coun-cillor, José Fernando Rivero “this is the test we organise – in this case in collaboration with the Sports Club Tágara Trail – Tenerife Corre – in which more athletes participate, exceeding this year the 500-mark”. In this sense, he points out that “despite the tough nature of the race, we continue to fill the places and we owe that mainly to the great work of the members of the Tágara Trail and to the volunteers, who will be in charge of the five supply points distributed to along the way.”
Héctor González, president of the Tágara Trail club said: “We are very satisfied to have exceeded again the 500 places, a figure we consider the limit to meet our objectives of quality, safety, treatment to the runner and other services we offer.”
