A exciting challenge of 80 kilometers
October 9. El Garañón – Arinaga
We will be leaving from Los Llanos de la Pez until reaching Ayacata and, from there, we will reach the neighbourhood of La Plata. At the crossroads of Cruz Grande, the change from the south to the east slope is easily identified. The runner will enter the forest track Pilancones until La Manzanilla to reach the town of Santiago de Tunte. After a stretch along the road, we will take the track of El Gallego to reach the reservoir of La Sorrueda, a fertile landscape of the south east of Gran Canaria that shelters a leafy palm grove in the foothills of the Fortaleza de Ansite. This is an emblematic settlement and pre-Hispanic sanctuary, continuing along the ravine to the Aldea Blanca. You only have to go through the last kilometres, filledwith low mountain vegetation, typical of the eastern slope of the island.You will be arriving at the town of Agüimes, where you can see the end of the route: the coast of this part of the island. This last section will be the descent to the mountain of Arinaga, where the event will end.
