Linked to the event from day one, his unmistakable voice and contagious enthusiasm have turned him into an icon of Plátano de Canarias Transvulcania. Journalist, speaker and sports trainer, José Antonio de Pablo "Depa" has recently been selected as team official for the Spanish national team competing in the IAU World Trail Championship to be held in Annecy (France) in late May. In this rather juicy interview he dissects, counsels and comments on the next edition of the event.

The North Face and Compressport, two leading brands of technical clothing, will participate in the Transvulcania Training Camp. Both will present their products and offer free goodies to the assistants.
It is a natural step in the relationship with our event, as they jointly sponsor Yeray Durán and Fernanda Maciel, the two leading teachers of the campus. The Camp will take place at the Teneguía Princess Hotel (Fuencaliente, La Palma), from the 1st to the 5th of April.
