Sign up for night run, as well as a sea swim

AS the sun goes down and the surfers dry their boards, 600 runners will be limbering up for this year’s Trail Nocturno run around El Medano.

The event begins at 9pm on Saturday, 14th July, and those interested must sign up a week earlier, on 7th July.

Everyone will run the same 12km distance, starting and finishing at the Plaza El Medano, by the seafront.

Each runner will be given a light to strap to his or her head, and a chip to record the time. These night events are extremely popular around Tenerife, and, at this time of year, the cool conditions are a welcome contrast after the daily sunshine.

To sign up, and pay the 18-euro inscription fee, go to the website

But if running doesn’t float your boat, try swimming. The 23rd annual Travesia A Nado, from Playa del Arena to Puerto Santiago, takes place a week earlier, on Saturday, 7th July. But you need to book your place by 2nd July.

There are plenty of different categories for the 960m swim, from one bay to the neighbouring one, around the headland, and it’s just 10 euros to take part.

Sign up at or call at the Pancracio Socas Garcia sports complex, just off the promenade in Playa del Arena, or call 922 868 108.
