The Moonlight walks, an initiative of the Municipality of Lagoa, returned during the months of July and August and brought together more than 3 thousand people. 

Every Wednesday, there were many who practiced physical activity, improving their health, well-being and quality of life.

The six stages, which corresponded to about 60 kilometers traveled and included the passage through all the parishes of the municipality, included two courses, five kilometers for marches and ten kilometers for races.

In these walks, «participants, coming not only from Lagoa, but also from neighboring municipalities and visitors on vacation, had the opportunity to know, walk or run, the streets of the parishes of the municipality», highlights the Câmara de Lagoa in a note.

«The Municipality of Lagoa continues to successfully promote activities that promote physical exercise for all and that contradict statistics, which indicate that the number of Portuguese over 15 years old “rarely” or “never practice” exercise or sport. Moonlight walks are one of the events that are part of the municipality's sports development strategy, which falls under the 1st Axis “Sports for All”», continues the municipality.
