This is one of those ideas that has triumphed because it has just the right ingredients to make it a success. It has taken the stunning environment of La Graciosa, added a sprinkling of various categories to suit different levels and it’s topped off with a spectacular sports atmosphere. For these reasons, the Eighth Island Challenge appeals to amateurs and professional athletes alike and, for many, it marks the start of the competitive sports season.

It basically consists of two races; a cross triathlon and a trail run (with three distance options), which are held on consecutive days. You can choose to do just one of them, or both. The person who achieves the best classification in both the triathlon and trail run will be the winner of Desafío Octava Isla.
