Entries open for Lanzarote’s annual wine run 

The registration period to participate in the eleventh edition of the Wine Run Lanzarote, to be held on Sunday, June 16th, will remain open until Monday, June 10th.

Those interested in participating can formalise through the link http://www.lanzarotewinerun.com/en/inscriptions/ their request to participate in any of the three modalities: the long race of 23 kilometres, short race and walk (both of 12 kilometres) for which there are already more than 650 registered in total.
The ‘Lanzarote Wine Run & Traditional Cuisine Festival’ is organised by the Cabildo de Lanzarote, Regulating Council of the Denomination of Origin Wines of Lanzarote, Yaiza City Council and Club La Santa.
As a prelude, on the afternoon of Saturday, June 15th at the Plaza de Uga, there will be a Traditional Cooking Festival, in which throughout the weekend you can taste excellent local food and wine products.
Once again, the event will have a strong solidarity character by allocating part of the collection obtained by the inscriptions and sale of drinks to the project ‘Save La Geria’. Through this initiative, the Cabildo of Lanzarote promotes the economic, cultural, environmental and touristic sustainability of the land-scape of La Geria, through the enhancement of vineyard cultivation, the promotion of wine tourism and hiking and the recovery of traditional trails and degraded spaces, among other actions.
In this sense, it is worth noting the work of Grevislan, special employment centre of the Association of People with Disabilities of Lanzarote (Adislan) that promotes the labour and social insertion of people with disabilities and that for years has been carrying out recovery tasks.
