Tenerife Bluetrail 2020, a test organized by the Cabildo de Tenerife through the public company Ideco, will open the registration period October 1, 2019 through the website www.tenerifebluetrail.com.
The race, which celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2020, offers participants five different modalities: the 103km Ultra; Trail, 71 kilometers; Marathon, 44; Average, which covers a distance of 20 kilometers, and the Bluetrail Challenge for people with disabilities, which includes three distances of 8, 3.7 and 1.2 kilometers, respectively.
One of the main novelties of this year will be the inclusion of a modality of relays in pairs in the Trail of 71 kilometers in male, female and mixed categories. The first runner will depart from Vilaflor and travel the corresponding distance to El Portillo, from where your relay will depart.
The 2,900 places offered to participate in the race, whose price ranges between 120 and 30 euros, are distributed as follows: 500 seats for the Ultra mode; 600 for the Trail; 800 seats for the Marathon; 900 for the Average and 100 for the Bluetrail Challenge. The first 200 athletes who formalize the registration will get a discount on the price that can reach up to 30 percent.
Tenerife Bluetrail 2020, which will be held June 6, 2020, is the highest mountain race in Spain and the second in Europe since the ultra modality of the test crosses the Teide National Park and ascends to 3,555 meters.
The Tenerife event will again have points awarded by the International Trail Running Association (ITRA) in all its modalities that are valid for the UTMB. Thus, the Ultra version (102 km) will have 5 points, while the Trail (71 km) 3 points, the Marathon (43 km) 2 points and the Average (20 km) 1 point.
Fred. Olsen Tenerife Bluetrail was recently promoted in the Salon of the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB), which was held at the end of August in Chamonix (France) as part of this race considered the most important in the world in its field.
The Tenerife test was present at the fair with its own stand, in which detailed information on the competition was offered: its modalities, routes or the registration period, among other issues.
Fred. Olsen Tenerife Bluetrail is sponsored by Tenerife Tourism, Promotur, Fred. Olsen Express and Hospiten, and with the collaboration of the companies Fonteide, Physiorelax and Isola Nuts that accompany.
