The first edition of the proof of trail running “Trilhos Salgados – Lagoa” will challenge athletes from the Algarve and Alentejo to walk the paths of the Promontório and the 7 Suspended Valleys – and not only – on the 26th of January.

In terms of entertainment, there will be an 11-kilometer walk between Benagil and Porches.

The race will take place on the trails of the Promontories and the 7 Suspended Valleys, «which will be complemented by other trails and single tracks more interior and also challenging for competitive athletes».
