Program changes

This event takes place outdoors; therefore, it is subject to weather conditions, the environment, transportation, or even accidents that may occur, among other circumstances. The organisation has the full right to make changes or modifications to the planned event programme or even cancel the event due to any causes or events of force majeure.

Weather

Although in general the weather in Gran Canaria is quite mild, you should take into account the location of the trails and the temperatures of the days before, in order to wear the right clothes.
