It is a point to point challange, all along the most astonishing places of the Tenerife island in the Canary Islands.
Swim starts at 5:00am in La Caleta, an old fisherman town in Southern Tenerife, 3.800m. to Playa Fañabe. Then a bike leg with 2 mountains passes and 5.000 meters of elevation gain with the most astonishing views you can imagine from all sides of the island, to the North, South, East and West. In clear days you can see the islands of La Gomera, el Hierro, La Palma and Gran Canaria on the horizon floating over the Atlantic Ocean. And the run, how can we describe it ? Athletes would have to be prepare to climb over the top of the Teide Volcano, over 3.700 meters above sea level.
The run starts at 2.200m at El Parador and heads up to the Volcano summit, to descend to the West to Pico Viejo Volcano.
We know. It is crazy. It is SOUTHMAN
