Will you take on the challenge:  a five-leg nature trail crossing Lanzarote from north to south, in aid of Living With Parkinson’s

Get those trainers out of the wardrobe and join us for our next great fundraising challenge: a five-leg nature trail (GR-131) crossing Lanzarote from north to south – taking in its people, traditions and walking amongst dormant volcanoes.  The route spans a total of 77km, but don’t panic! Our challenge is to walk the route over five consecutive weekends in March 2024 to raise funds for Living With Parkinson’s.

How can you get involved?

We invite those interested to join us on one or more (or all!) of the five “legs”… maybe the leg closest to your home? Entry fee is 25€ which includes a promotional T-shirt. In addition you may wish to raise further funds by encouraging friends and family to sponsor your efforts. We are promoting early to give entrants time to dust off their good walking shoes and get in a little training ! When we have an idea on numbers, shared transport to the start / finish points can be arranged.

What is the route?

  • Sunday 3 March – ÓRZOLA > HARIA    14km (approx. 3hrs)
  • Sunday 10 March – HARIA > TEGUISE    13km (approx 2.5hrs)
  • Sunday 17 March – TEGUISE > SAN BARTOLOME    9.5km (approx 2hrs)
  • Sunday 24 March – SAN BARTOLOME > YAIZA    23km (approx 5hrs)
  • Sunday 31 March – YAIZA > PLAYA BLANCA    17.5km (approx 3.5hrs)

What if I’m not up to it?

Don’t worry! You can still support the challenge by making a donation to support those walking the route.

To register interest or ask for more information, contact the charity by email at hello@livingwithparkinsons.es

 Closing date for entries will be  the 10th of February, 2024.
