Eighth Island Challenge (Desafío Octava Isla) 2019


9th & 10th March 2019

Extreme sport and nature combine in La Graciosa for a spectacular sporting event set in this unique island whose environment and ecology inspire great scientific interest particularly for its geology and landscapes.

Race participants can enjoy competing in stunning surroundings which is home to a rich variety of endemic species.

The route takes them through golden sandy beaches, across dunes and along unpaved sand-covered streets, reaching the finishing line in the shade of the island’s low-rise buildings.

The outright winner of the Eighth Island Challenge (d8i) is the athlete who clocks the fastest time after two days of competing in two disciplines; a Cross-Triathlon and a Trail Run – most certainly a unique race which provides unforgettable moments.
