First-ever solidarity walk in Orotava Valley set for May 

The first solidarity walk of the Orotava Valley will be celebrated in May.

The Club Sombra del Teide, on the occasion of its third anniversary, and in collaboration with La Orotava council, has organised a unique activity to celebrate.

The event will take place on Saturday, May 13th. There will be three parallel routes on foot – with a maximum of 50 walkers federated in each one of them – that will start in different points but they will coincide in the final point, in the Plaza de la Constitución where there will be a celebration party.

The participants will be offered Canary food, drink and fruit. After the meal, various objects and gifts that have been donated by different companies expressly for this event will be raffled.

The organisation wanted to take advantage of this initiative to be supportive, so that participants and residents in general can go along to the Plaza de la Constitución (also known as Plaza del Kiosco) and donate non-perishable food to families with needs.

The only requirement to participate in the route is to be over 18 years of age and to be federated in any mountain club, as it is not permissible for one day insurance. The club will be putting on a bus service for the transfer from La Orotava to each place of beginning of walk.

The first route is 15km and will last about six hours. The second one leaves from Santa Úrsula and is about 8.9km and, taking four hours. The third route is over a 13km route and will take approximately five hours.
