For the Runners
Everyday, there is the option to take part in a morning run around the lagoon. The run is led by the Green Team and is a great opportunity to meet other guests. This run follows the traditional 8 am Morning Gymnastics (think warm up) and combining the both is a great way to start the new day with a boost at Club La Santa.
Throughout the week there are several running activities and events on offer; all hosted by the expert Green Team. These include: a running technique session, interval training at the track, 8 km Hill Run, and Off Road runs, as well as various informal races, ranging from 5k all the way up to half marathon. Participation in everything is free of charge and gives you the chance to meet other running enthusiasts. The off road runs in particular also give you an excellent opportunity to take in the beauty of Club La Santa and the surrounding area.
The routes are available for you if you want to head out and try them on your own. There are also lots of options available involving trails or on the safe quiet roads, and the Green Team are always on hand to offer any route advice or assistance you may require.
For the Cyclists
Consistent, dry weather is a given almost all year round. Rainy days are a rarity, and it will certainly never snow, as it can on other islands, such as Mallorca, over winter. It can get a little warm in the peak summer months, but if you get out early and finish around early afternoon, you should be fine, and can enjoy an easy recovery swim when you get back. Of course, whenever you go to Lanzarote, you have to be prepared for the wind, it’s famous for it. You can expect some winds most days (speeds of 10mph or 16kph are typical).Try to plan your routes, so you don’t have to deal with a headwind for the whole time (unless of course, you want the extra challenge). If you do, ensure you can share the work as part of a group.
The road surfaces, across the entire island, are excellent. The tarmac offers just the right amount of grip, without feeling heavy, and traffic is super quiet. On many rides, you can count the number of cars that pass you on a couple of hands. The island’s terrain offers plenty of variety; there are climbs to be sought out, especially on the volcanic side of the island; but the majority is flat and undulating, which is great for keeping groups together.
The volcanic landscape is unique and dramatic, especially through Timanfaya National Park. A day on a bike probably offers one of the best ways to appreciate the incredible landscape; the entire island has been designated a UNESCO biosphere reserve.
Finally, if you really want to challenge yourself, you can take on the complete Club La Santa IRONMAN Lanzarote bike route. At 112 miles and over 8000 ft it certainly makes for a decent day out.
