There is a long-distance route, comprising a total of 80 kilometers, which starts at the Vicente Carreno football field (Corralejo), continuing through Lajares, Tindaya and ending at the starting point. There will also be a short stage that has 50 kilometers and carries out the same route but goes to El Roque instead of Tindaya.
