Hero Trail of Adeje pays its respects to the environment
The Hero Trail of Adeje, one of the toughest events in its category, has already become one of the most powerful sport events in the municipality with more than 300 people taking part.
Councillor for sports and tourism, Adolfo Alonso Ferrera said: “We have been promoting sport in all its dimensions, either through municipal schools or through large-scale events, whether regional, national or even international. Our intention is to continue in this line of work, taking advantage of the wide range of public and private facilities, as well as the climate and our own natural resources, to further link sports with tourism.”
The second edition of the Hero Trail took place recently with Germán González and Marta Miglioli winning the distance of 22 kilometre and being joined on the podium by Luz Martín and Rubén Amador. In the distance of 12 kilometres, Carlos Jesús Hernández and Grillet Marion won, as well as Iván Álvarez and Javier Padrón in the couples category.
The test, with its departure and arrival at the Plaza España de Adeje, passed through some of the most unique natural sites in the municipality such as Boca del Paso. With it, the calendar of mountain races in Tenerife was opened in 2020 with a record of registered people. The Hero Trail is organised by the Canaryrun club and Adeje council, with the collaboration of Spanish newspaper Diario de Avisos.
The fastest runner in the long distance was Germán González (02:22:38), Román Sánchez (02:22:57) and Fabrizio Fascendini (02:25:23). In the women’s category, the fastest was Marta Miglioli (03:02:25), followed by Silvia Luis Estévez (03:11:09), and Lola Izquierdo (03:21:27).
In pairs the classification was with Luz Martín and Rubén Amador (03:02:49) in the 22km and 12km, Iván Álvarez and Javier Padrón (01:41:40). Finally, Humberto López and Nine Domínguez won in the mixed category (02:01:59).
In order to minimise the consumption of plastic, the organisation of the Hero Trail eliminated the single-use vessels at the points of provisioning and invited all the participants to replenish liquid in their own bottles. Also, with the aim of reducing the pollution footprint, this year the use of plastic beacons was minimised.
