Another honour for seventh edition of Pinolere Trail 

The seventh edition of the Pinolere Trail will host on April 26th, 2020 the Canary Trail Championship, which will be held over a distance of 27 kilometres.

In this way, the mountain race organised by the Orotava-Clator Athletics Club and sponsored by La Orotava council, with the collaboration of the Cabildo de Tenerife, will crown the best trail runners in the archipelago.
The Canarian Athletics Federation has chosen the Pinolere Trail to be the organising event of the regional trail event in 2020, thus recognising the intermediate modality of the north island race, which has been held since 2014.
The Canary Trail Championship will start from the Pinolere Museum and Ethnographic Park and will pass through the Dornajito Cross and the Chasna Road. Competitors will also step on the Protected Landscape of La Resbala, an important natural centre of Tenerife, and will face again the hard climb of the Barranco del Infierno, located a few kilometres away from the finish line. Areas of Laurisilva, pine, cultivation, forest tracks and historical trails will be some of the scenarios that the most prominent athletes on the regional scene will encounter.
This seventh Pinolere event will include a new route for the 42-kilometre queen test and a profile of greater difficulty. The organisation has been working on the ground for months to offer an itinerary that ascends to the faults of Montaña Limón through little-known paths, guaranteeing participants a positive slope of 2,820 metres. On the website of the test (www.pinoleretrail.com) you can now consult, and download, the new marathon route.
In addition, there is the 11-kilometre test, which runs through Pinolere and the Casa del Agua.. All modalities cross several paths belonging to PR-TF 35, GR 131, part of the Candelaria Road and several forest tracks.
Registrations will be maintained until April 3rd, 2020 on the official website of the test: www.pinolere-trail.com.
