Race Location Overview:

The Teide National Park is the most visited National Park in Europe, with nearly four million tourists each year coming to witness one of the greatest geological spectacles on our planet.

Tens of thousands of intrepid visitors reach the peak of Mount Teide. Most do so using the cable car which commences at a car-park located at 2365 metres near Canadas del Teide.

However, the most daring try to complete the ascent and descent of the volcano in one assault, starting at zero metres from the beach at Playa del Socorro (Los Realejos), up to the peak of Mount Teide and back down to the beach at Playa del Socorro.

In order to comply with authority race consents, competitors are required to reach the peak of Mount Teide no later than 8.00am. For this reason the race start time is midnight which gives competitors 8 hours to achieve this. Outside this time the final section of Mount Teide will be closed. Competitors who miss this cut-off time can still continue back to the beach and will be recorded on the results list with finishing times and positions, although they will be noted as not completing the 0-4-0 Extreme Challenge.

If you prefer the challenge of just the climb and not the decent, then enter 0-4 Extreme which concludes at the top of Tiede.


The Gran Hotel Turquesa is the official 0-4-0 hotel and is included within the package cost. Click HERE for more information.
