2012 Transvulcania Ultramarathon Live Coverage

TransvulcaniaThis Saturday at 6 am local time (WET/GMT+1; 1 am EDT in the States) on the volcanic island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, the Transvulcania ultramarthon (83 km/51.5 miles) gets underway with one of, if not the most stacked trail ultramarathon fields in history. Bryon Powell of iRunFar will livecast the event as best he can on iRunFar’s Twitter feed, and will try to enlist additional international journalists to aid a join coverage effort collected below. Back home in the States, Meghan Hicks will moderate  and add to the discussion in the live coverage of this post, so feel free to jump in.

Tell your friends. Join the discussion. Enjoy.

Here are a couple resources to help you follow the race:

If you enjoy iRunFar’s live coverage from Spain or all-night moderation Stateside, please considering making a donation. Just $5 will get me a glass of “recovery” rioja in Spain, while $10 will get Meghan a pound of decent coffee here in the US to keep her awake for Zegama. A larger donation would help support our travel to cover other races near and far.

    Was that the famous Bryon Powell I saw in photos of the "easy run"? Looks like you were right behind Kilian (and you were sporting the Sense I believe)…

    So, who was huffing and puffing? Who had the worst jet-lag? Give us a little intel. It's not too late for us to adjust our picks!


    Seriously, thanks for being there and covering this. And thanks to Meghan for moderating at what are, let's face it, ridiculous hours of the night/morning.
