Sky Gran Canaria

October 16

The natural environment Gran Canaria has to offer makes its description as “miniature continent” very fitting. The benignity of its climate, stroked by the trade winds, and lack of extreme temperatures, allows the practice of outdoor sports all year round.

BEYOND THE COAST_SKY TOUR GRAN CANARIA ® is a mountain race that counts with the main race, an 82 km ULTRATRAIL with almost 4,500 metres of positive elevation. In addition, it offers other races that adapt to the different profiles of the runners who will be able to choose a distance according to their capabilities.

BEYOND THE COAST_SKY TOUR GRAN CANARIA ® traverses Gran Canaria from southwest to northwest beginning in Arguineguín town (Playa del Pajar), and finishing in Agaete Town (Puerto de las Nieves). It will run through the highest point of the island – Pico de las Nieves, which rises 1,954 metres above sea level- and the biggest dams of the island, wandering through the municipalities of San Bartolomé de Tirajana, Mogán, Artenara, Tejeda, Vega de San Mateo, Guía y Agaete; the latter being the host for this event.

BEYOND THE COAST_SKY TOUR GRAN CANARIA ® is a race suitable for all types of runners. The gorgeous sceneries the island has to offer will allow your maximum enjoyment.

BEYOND THE COAST_SKY TOUR GRAN CANARIA ® is an event that scores for the Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB), an ITRA member and DUV member also.
