While the rest of Europe freezes this January Gran Canaria will see typical temperatures of around 20 degrees. The race is one of the best value for money events in Europe and attracts several thousand runners each year.
The race starts and finishes in Calle Venegas. It is a fast course which takes in lots of scenic areas including Las Canteros beach and Vegueto, the historic old town.
My wife and i are keen runners and we simply would not miss this run, it is a fast flat course (absolutely no hills whatsoever ) and the scenic route is breathtaking. The organisers cater for all abilities from the elite to the 3hr joggers. Race pack collection is easy and hassle free also the after race area is full of food and drink with a carnival atmosphere, ,, not to be missed , glorious sunshine as well . JUST DO IT !
