As every year, Transvulcania gathers some of the best athletes of our sport from all around the world. Tim Freriks and Ida Nilsson put on master-class performances to win the 2017 Transvulcania Ultramarathon. The race resembles more of a roller derby meets Spanish fiesta, with crowds cheering you on at every turn and someone constantly on your tail. It is thrilling and exhausting at the same time.
It is a 74km skyrace with 4350m of climb, following the GR131 trail on la Palma and connecting up with the GR130. Being a skyrace, there is a good portion of the race that runs above 2000m, offering incredible views of the island and even nearby Tenerife.
