Registrations opening soon.

This category will start at 07:30h on 10th June 2023 in the Basílica de Candelaria Square to complete a stretch of 44 km until reaching the finish line in Puerto de la Cruz.

Starting from the square of the Patron Saint of the Canary Islands is already an attraction that only runners in this category can experience, and they will also be given the opportunity to make an offering to the Virgin before the race begins.

The first refreshment point will be at the Los Barranquillos football pitch (Barranco Hondo), from where the runners will start their ascent up to the El Picacho viewpoint to Las Lagunetas and Santa Úrsula and then descend along the beaches of Ancón, Los Patos and El Bollullo. The finish line will be in Reyes Católicos Square in Puerto de la Cruz.

Is it magic?

Those who know the Tenerife Bluetrail well say that it is a “magic” race.

This is surely because it crosses the Teide National Park, declared a World Heritage Site. Few other events in the world give you the chance to start from the coast, run between rock formations and volcanic peaks, climb among the jagged rocks of lava flows, take a break while contemplating the island in its entirety from the summit of Teide and then descend steeply through pine and laurel forests to the coastal paths on the north coast.

Maybe it’s magic too because of that strange mixture of sea, sky, clouds and volcano you encounter during the race. Setting off from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, climbing to an altitude of 3,555 metres and finishing at the seaside once again in one of Spain’s most important tourist cities is, to say the least, surprising for any runner. Mimicking the ‘sea of clouds’, that natural effect created by the trade winds that create the illusion of a calm, fluffy sea of clouds seen from the mountain top, can be a unique experience for those who have been lucky enough to see it.

The organisers have set a quota of 800 athletes for the marathon mode, which is also supported by the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB), the world’s most prestigious event in this speciality. After the race, the runners will receive a UTMB index for their performance in the corresponding distance category.
