About Gran Canaria

Sky Gran Canaria, born in 2018 with the idea of linking the Southwest and Northwest of the island of Gran Canaria, and the challenge of doing it through a course that passes through the highest point of the island, the Pico de las Nieves, at 1,948 metres altitude, but also through the shortest course, because it offers the most spectacular views of the archipelago at all times.

While in its first edition the finish line was in the tourist town of Mogán, in the south of the island, from 2020 the finish line moved to Agaete, a small coastal town with a typically island charm. A suggestive  enclave surrounded by the highest cliff in Europe, Faneque, with an altitude of 1,008 metres above the Atlantic Ocean, known as the dragon’s tail.

The event will be held on October 13, 14 and 15, and will host the World Cup FINALISSIMA of the international circuit of the World Mountain Running Association (WMRA). Also, the TRAILSKY TAA50 will host the Ultra Trail Canary Islands Championship of the Athletics Federation. Itwill be threedaysofthepurest trail running, withthe male and female WORLD TOP in eachofthe disciplines
