New record attendance at the Lanzarote International Running Challenge

Runners from all over the world gathered in Lanzarote between the 26th and 29th of November to participate in the Lanzarote International Running Challenge.

The 29th edition of the competition broke a record attendance with more than 400 participants registered for all four races. The podium was dominated by athletes Kasper Laumann Hartlev (DEN) and Pauline Curley (IRL) who obtained top spots in all the competitions. It is also worth mentioning the presence of the Olympic athlete from Lanzarote, José Carlos Hernández, who won second place in the 10k competition.

The event had excellent weather during the four days, which allowed everyone to enjoy the festive atmosphere of the competition, especially the children who participated for the first time in their own race, The Kids Challenge, a race that is expected to be repeated in the next year’s edition of the event.
