The Transvulcania Ultramarathon takes place on beautiful La Palma, in the Canary Islands. Along with the flagship 74K distance (which includes a stout 27,500 or so feet of elevation change), there’s a marathon, half-marathon, vertical K and kids’ race.
Transvulcania regularly attracts top international competitors, as well as a few thousand other runners, and surely the scenery is part of what makes it so popular. This 40-second video previews the course in a montage of mountain climbs, clifftop runs and stunning ocean views.
