The Long Walk is the annual coast-to-coast charity hike across the beautiful, sub-tropical island of Gran Canaria. We raise funds for our local causes and charitable organisations on the island, helping those we can to overcome challenges. The event itself also provides unparalleled opportunities for team building, personal development and direct community action while negotiating a great sub-tropical wilderness in a safe and motivating environment.
This walk simply demonstrates that together we can all cross mountains, one step at a time.
Time left to The Long Walk 2018:
This year´s event is planned for September 28 – 30 2018. The entire route will take us from the Telde coast, over the highest peak and down to Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria where this initiative all began.
