The Transvulcania 2020 itself offers four competitive distances, the Ultra Marathon, the Marathon, the Half Marathon and the Vertical Kilometre. These registrations can be made through the website of the test www.tra-nsvulcania.com.
Transvulcania will once again be one of the star races of the Migu Run Skyrunner World Series calendar and will be directly linked to the natural landscape through which it passes, especially by some of the most spec-tacular and emblematic volcanoes in the Canary Islands.
Minister of Sports of La Palma Cabildo, Ascensión Rodríguez said it was a unique test in the world and would attract the best athletes of the moment.
The test will continue to maintain the same parti-cipation criteria as in previous editions. To run the ultra marathon distance, it will be necessary to prove the completion of a marathon distance test during the previous 18 months or, at least, 40 kilometres of distance.
Meanwhile, to run the marathon it will be necessary to prove that during the previous 18 months the registered athlete finished a test of at least 20 kilometres. For the rest of the distances these requirements are not mandatory.
