This race starts right in the center of the beautiful town of Baião, located between the Aboboreira and Castelo de Matos mountain ranges. Two magnificent mountains that together house the largest open-air megalithic museum in Portugal.
Baião is a land that surprises those who visit it. A land of mysticism and magic. And a destination of reference in sustainable tourism.
From here you will ascend to the plateau of the Aboboreira mountain range, walking along trails with magnificent landscapes, and then descend to Aldeia Velha. You will run through centuries-old trails, a verdant forest and the beautiful Goiva waterfalls.
It’s an excellent opportunity for those looking for a very short distance, but keeping the identity of the Marão mountain range.
Let yourself be enchanted!
