In 2017 we will celebrate the XXI Mayor Camilo Sánchez Gran Canaria Half-Marathon.

This is a race that takes place in the municipality of Santa Lucía on the island of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands.

The Canary Islands, wich belong to Spain and fully integrated in the European Union, are located in the blue and refreshing waters on the Atlantic Ocean, some 4º from the tropic of Cancer. The Canary Islands display all of the magic of an archipiélago that is unique throughhout the world for its diversity and subtropical richness; there is an entire universo to be enjoyed in a spring-like climate that lasts twelve months of the year. Gran Canaria is a meeting point with Europe where never ending spring.

 

 

The XI edition of this event, that combines the distances of 5, 10’5 and 21 km in a  3 days program with activities for all ages, will be celebrated on November 26th. It is an event that was born in 2001 and maintains a solidarity spirit in memorial of the deceased mayor of the municipality of Santa Lucía, Camilo Sánchez.

Thanks to the climate of Gran Canaria it is possible to take place a race of these characteristics at the end of November. This fact, together with the accommodation offer with possibilities of 2 and 4 stars hotels has made possible the rising of the number of participatings arriving from other islands and Spanish communities, as well as runners from the United Kingdom, Germany, Holland and Italy, among others.

From its beginnings this race wanted to be a reference in athletics of the island of Gran Canaria and it is getting it. But it also wants to be attractive to those who start running or who usually practice other modalities.

For all this, we want to invite you to it because we believe it is a great offer for a sporting holiday destination for the whole family.
