Yes, we made a mistake. The distance between the aid stations of El Reventón and Pico de la Cruz was greater that we said it was on our information panels (around 4.5 Km longer).

Plátano de Canarias Transvulcania will aim to increase the sustainable use of roads and vehicles in 2015, turning buses into the favored method of transportation. The new policies will bring, among other changes, the closure of the western side of the LP-301 road (from El Paso). Visitors wishing to reach Refugio del Pilar must either use the free shuttle buses departing La Caldera National Park Visitor's Centre or drive up the eastern section of the said road from San Isidro. A new bus service to follow the race on selected spots will also be available for the first time ever.
