PT281+ Ultramarathon

July 21 to 25th2022, days until…

RACE INFO

The month of July was chosen because of our inspirations. To be at the level of one of the most extreme races in the world, we need a very important external factor: heat. In the Badwater the heat easily reaches 60º in the Californian Death Valley. At BR135+ the temperatures can at any time have a humidity percentage in the air of 95%. In the PT 281+ Ultramarathon Portugal we will be in between the two.

During the month of July, in the places where the race will take place, the thermometers easily exceed 40º, besides being a dry, suffocating, burning heat. This is a factor that easily puts the PT 281+ Ultramarathon Portugal in a level of extreme difficulty.

COURSE

The route starts in Belmonte and passes through Penamacor, the Serra de Malcata, Monsanto and Penha Garcia, Idanha-a-Nova, Castelo Branco, Tejo Internacional, Vila Velha de Ródão, Portas de Ródão, Oleiros and the Appalachian Trails, ending at the fluvial beach of Aldeia Ruiva in Proença-a-Nova.

It is done in a semi self-sufficient regime, that is, despite being a continuous course, with a time limit for completion, the participants will find along the way several Control Posts, where they can rest and replenish their strength.
