8th Island Challenge

The 8th island Challenge, Desafio 8ª Isla, takes place in November on the island of La Graciosa, The Canary Islands 8th island.

It’s basically two events in one – a triathlon, or a trail run, or both!


The triathlon event takes place on the first day and consists of an ocean swim, an 20KM MTB ride and a 5KM run.

Competitors can call it a day there, or stay over for the trail run event the next day.

Trail Run

There are three routes for the trail run, held on day two – 8KM, 20KM and 31KM.


Here’s a video of the 2019 event:


The event will be held this year on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st November.
