Don’t step on my Bluetrail shoes…

ENDURANCE races just keep getting tougher in Tenerife, and they don’t get much tougher than this!

This weekend sees the third edition of the Bluetrail, and 2,400 runners, from 38 countries, can’t wait to test themselves against nature, on a series of routes.

The daddy of them all is the 102km Ultra, starting from Playa Fañabe at 11.30 tonight (Friday), up through Adeje, and Ifonche, and on to the 3,555m-high Mount Teide National Park.

The race ends in Puerto de la Cruz, the official finishing line for all the races.

The other routes take place tomorrow (Saturday), with the Trail, a gruelling 67km challenge, starting from Vilaflor at 6am.

Then there’s the 43km Marathon, which begins in La Orotava at 9am, and the 20km Media, setting out at 8am from Los Realejos.

All that action will need a lot of organising, which is why 300 volunteers have been recruited to patrol the routes. And there is also a series of shuttle buses on hand, to round up wayward runners.
