Transvulcania is a long distance race, considered the hardest mountain-ultramarathon in the Canary Islands and one of the most important in the world. The race takes place on the island of La Palma and departs in nighttime from Fuencaliente's Lighthouse at sea level to ascend running until the 2,5km in the highest point. On the start time when everybody is together you can see this beautiful and unique human light's snake.
Location: Fuencaliente, La Palma
