23-06-2011 (db/sb) - The Lanzarote Wine Run is a unique running event in the wine district of La Geria; Compete the marathon and sample the delicious local wines along the route in some of the planet’s most extraordinary scenery.


Course Description -
La Geria, located in the heart of Lanzarote between the towns of Mozaga and Yaiza, is the source of Malmsey, a robust sweet wine, known locally by the name of its grape, Malvasia. In the early 1700s, the valley was farmland, but in 1730 a six-year period of volcanic eruptions covered southern Lanzarote with thick layers of ash and lava. When farmers returned to their blackened fields, they quickly discovered a use for the tiny black cinders and developed a method of growing vines on volcanic slopes by surrounding each plant with picón (lava gravel) to trap the dew, and sheltering it with a zoco, a semicircle of stone walls. La Geria valley is today covered in a pattern of these round depressions and zocos, where visitors can sample and buy the wines from the local “bodegas”, and learn about their unusual history at a wine museum.

 

 

Course description – 21.1 K - The start will be at Los Dolores Church in Mancha Blanca (TBC). The run course will take the participants on different types of surfaces through the vineyards in the La Geria region. In this area the runners will be offered free samples of the wine produced by the local “bodegas”. The finish line will be in La Geria district between ‘La Geria’ and ‘Rubicon’ vineyards. (TBC) Time limit: 4 hours

Aid Station - There will be several aid stations supplying you with water and samples of the wine produced by the local “bodegas”.

 

 

Entry fee: €30 + €25 deposit for the timing chip. €10 for the Wine Walk.
