PT281+ Ultramarathon

de 21 a 25 de Julho de 2021, missing…

RACE NFO

The choice for the month of july is related to our inspirations. To be on pair with one of the most extreme races in the world, we need a very important external factor: the heat. In Badwater, the temperature reaches easily 60ºC, in the California Valley of Death. In BR135+, the air can have, at any moment, 95% moisture. In PT281+ Ultramarathon we’ll be in beetween both.

During july, in the places where the race happens, the thermometers pass, easily, 40ºC, other than being a suffocating and fiery dry heat. This is a factor that easily places PT281+ Ultramarathon in a extreme difficulty plateau.

ROUTE

The route is continuos, starting in Belmonte and passing in Penamacor, through Serra da Malcata, Monsanto and Penha Garcia, Idanha-a-Nova, Castelo Branco, Tejo Internacional, Vila Velha de Ródão, Portas de Ródão, Oleiros trought the Apalachian Trails, ending in Aldeia Ruiva beach in Proença-a-Nova.

The race is in semi self-sufficiency, meaning that, even tough the course is continuos and with a time limit, the participants will find along the course several Checkpoints, where they can rest and recover their strength.
