With the competition level surpassing all the previous 24 editions, The North Face Transgrancanaria is back with a bang to open the season of big races in Europe. New developments have been taking place over the last few months, including the return of prestigious sponsor The North Face, as well as the inclusion of the race in the World Trail Majors series. This will be the third race in the series following the Hong Kong 100 and the Black Canyon Ultras. The World Trail Majors series is causing a stir amongst the press and trail/ultra running fans all over the world. This is the pre-race of Transgrancanaria 2024.
Black Canyon Ultras 2024 did not disappoint for its eleventh edition. Challenging, fast and very competitive, the second race in the World Trail Majors series proved to be a firework display from the start. From a delayed start caused by snow at the highest points to the arid desert landscape, we were able to see a good bit of Arizona thanks to the amazing live footage use of drone cameras. The victories of Hayden Hawks and Rachel Drake have confirmed them as two of the best North American runners of the present time.

Since going public on 13th of November 2023, many races made contact with an interest to joining the series and conversations started. We can now announce the 10th race in the series: Grand Raid des Pyrenees joins World Trail Majors!
