The Champions (The Baize & Barbacoa Jungle Land) – The Long Walk 2021 Faro de Maspalomas – Gáldar, over the highest peak on Gran Canaria… #WeCrossMountains
The Champions want to raise money for local causes on Gran Canaria. They want to raise as much as possible by walking all three days coast-to-coast across the island. Epic! Their target is 1000€, can you help them get there?
This year Kern is being sponsored by The Baize, Snooker & Pool club
This year Simon is being sponsored by Barbacoa Jungle land
Please support The Champions epic adventure through the most beautiful sub-tropical wilderness in the world. They are walking 3-days, coast-to-coast across the highest point on Gran Canaria, to show the world that no matter what this year has to throw at us, this island sticks together and keeps on going, sticking our best foot forward, to cross mountains. #WeCrossMountains
Come cheer them on, as we leave Faro de Maspalomas on Oct 1 at 8am
The Champions are an outstanding performance duo that have become one of the most beloved acts to play the venues of the south of Gran Canaria.
Occasionally accompanied by their two bright, young, beautiful boys, they embody a soulful mix of Rock’n’Roll, swing time and crooner classics, with an eclectic cherry pie and bubble gum aesthetic, and send love out into the world dressed in sharp suits, angled trilbies, open shirt and undone black tie matched to stylish hairdos, tea-length, pencil and wiggle and the smooth rockabilly sounds of the 50s and 60s
The Long Walk – Gran Canaria aims to show that no matter the size of the challenge ahead of us, by working together, one step at a time, we can all cross mountains. #WeCrossMountains
We raise funds and awareness to assist families, groups and individuals on Gran Canaria facing potentially terminal illnesses, like Canarian Breast Cancer Association ACCM (Asociación Canaria de Cáncer de Mama y Ginecológico), environmental organisations helping to protect our island, such as Fundación FORESTA, and those dealing directly with poverty in our community, such as https://TheFoodProject.es Proyecto Vecinal de Alimentos de Mogán Nabohjelpen among others.
The Long Walk 2021 will start Day 1 by the famous Faro de Maspalomas lighthouse, and head north along The Pilgrims’ Way, the only officially recognised stretch of the Camino de Santiago (Ruta Jacobea) outside of mainland Europe. We will travel from the Dunes of Maspalomas, up through the Fataga valley to Tunte, where we will stay the night, and on Day 2 complete our ascent with a traditional toast at the highest summit on the island following a small detour from the trail, up to Pico de Las Nieves. Walking across Las Cumbres (The Summits) stopping another night at Cruz de Tejeda. Day 3 will begin with a visit to The Long Walk Woodland Reserve, before our descent, through the northern mountain pine forests, into the ancient pre-hispanic island capital, the royal city of Gáldar, and end on the north coast around sunset.
