Puerto de la Cruz, a multicultural city with a great diversity of attractions and shows for all tastes. Among them, the people who love overcome every day with sports and take their physical to the extreme in endurance races like Infinity Xtreme 2017, which will take place in Puerto de la Cruz this year with its eighth edition.
What is the Infinity Xtreme
Infinity Xtreme is a race in which participants will have to try to get the best possible time by overcoming tough tests in the course, with obstacles that will test their endurance, agility and ability to overcome any difficulties they encounter along the way.
A course that not only tests the physique of the participants, but also their psychological ability to overcome the harshness of the test.
Infinity Xtreme celebrates its eighth birthday this year 2017, consolidating itself as a test that every year attracts more canarian, national and international athletes, which want to proof themselves in this hard race of obstacles.
The race has a length of 5 or 10 kilometers, which although a priori may seem few for those who are accustomed to running often, but the obstacles that the participants will encounter do make it extremely complex.
Participants will have to move on some parts of the route crawling on muddy ground, and with barbed wire overhead, enter full water tanks, climbing ropes, moving on hanging path bars, jump on sliding slides, overcome obstacles filled with dirt throughout the course and on a surface totally muddy in most places of the course.
Course of the InfinityXtreme 2017
The circuit will consist of 5 kilometers, to which the participants, depending on the modality in which they are registered, must do one or two rounds in total.
The race will have its starting line and finish line in an esplanade of land next to the Avenue Blas Perez and Gonzalez, and will enter in the immediate measures of Playa Jardin, along its promenade and return to the obstacle zone.
Playa Jardín will be one of the emblematic places which the participants will have to pass in Infinity Xtreme 2017
The 5-kilometer test, called the Infinity Xtreme Sprint 2017, will be a test that will combine speed with agility and endurance, with a one-lap.
The test of 10 kilometers and therefore consisting of two laps, is the InfinityXtreme Radical, where the resistance of the participants, without a doubt, should be one of their strengths to finish the race in the best positions.
Puerto de la Cruz is counting on the sport
Throughout the year, Puerto de la Cruz hosts a large number of sports competitions of this nature, some of which have already achieved great international recognition.
Undoubtedly the most famous of them all is the Bluetrail Tenerife, whose goal is in Puerto de la Cruz. Here participate professional and semi-professional racers from all over the world. A test that, although different from the InfinityXtreme, undoubtedly gains in hardness. It is an Ultra Marathon of 97 kilometers in length that begins in the South of the island and ends in the North, in Puerto de la Cruz, after ascending and descending the Teide, the highest mountain in Spain.
For those who like to walk instead of running, the Tenerife Walking Festival is an event that attracts more national and international trekkers every year. They enjoy along with professional guides the special activities during the duration of the event, as well as the multiple trails that one can enjoy in Puerto de la Cruz and in the Valley of La Orotava.
Also for the more purists of the running, takes place in Puerto de la Cruz the Half Night Marathon that travels emblematic places of the city as the Peñón del Fraile, the Sculpture of the Fisherwoman and Playa Jardín.
In addition, in case you did not know, Puerto de la Cruz has a wide variety of places where tourists and Tinerfeños continually enjoy sports and running outdoors. Some of these places are the Taoro Park, the maritime complex of Playa Jardín, to run along the pleasant sea breeze or the promenade of Lake Martiánez.
