THE COURSE Stage 1: 10km loop cliff run The race begins with a stunning cliff edge run, with the clear blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean way below. The terrain is rugged and undulating with some modest scrambles which will be a taste of what is to come later on the volcanic mountain stage

Bike transition at the Sands Beach resort Stage 2: 48km road cycle Competitors collect their bicycles and set off on the open road from the Sands Beach resort. The route is along open roads, great surface, and passes through a remote and rugged part of the island. Along the way the route will pass through some local villages and sights include the Jardin de Cactus at the 20km marker. At the town of Arrieta competitors will turn inland from the coast and begin a long 4km slow and relentless climb. This climb with its hairpin turns mirrors those mountain stages you will have seen in the Tour De France. The climb is to 670M above sea level and at the summit competitors will be rewarded with spectacular views back down the valley. Legs will have an opportunity to recover during an enjoyable descent. As the route heads back to Costa Teguise then the daunting volcanic mountain Montana Corona looms into view. 3

Stage 3: 4km Montana Corona volcanic mountain scramble Competitors enter the bike transition area before beginning the rough trail run to the eastern side of the mountain. From here there is a gruelling ascent onto a knife edge ridge and a run to the summit at 235M. On descent from the mountain, competitors enter a gorge and have a dry river bed run where a surprise!!! Challenge has to be overcome before returning to the bike transition zone

Stage 4: 2km road cycle On leaving the bike transition area, competitors are immediately faced with “heartbreak hill” a short but severe climb must be negotiated before the final spin into Sands Beach Resort

Stage 5: Stand Up Paddle (SUP) We have introduced Stand Up Paddle (SUP) the World’s fastest growing surf sport into this years event. Jumping on your board “Hawaii style” competitors paddle a triangular course in the bay and will hope to catch a surf wave to being them back to Sands Beach Resort for a final sprint run to the finish line in the resort
