Register now for the Open MTB Gran Canaria

Plenty of MTB action for women in Las Palmas

Online registration has now opened for the Marathon MTB Open Gran Canaria, which takes place on March 8 2008. The event coincides with International Women's Day and women of all ages will be able to participate in the full marathon or ride a shorter distance. For each ridden kilometre a donation will be made in aid of the 'Association Contra Cancer de Mama', the association against breast cancer.

Other female-specific highlights include a 'boy dance group', tailor-made pre-marathon programme for women, and a small conference about the 'daily challenges for women in sport'.

Participants can choose between the 38km long half-marathon from Parque Maspalomas to the Ayaguares dam or a 90km long route which takes in the breathtaking views of Gran Canaria's landscape.
