Are you ready for the trails? The Ultra Blue Island Azores Trail Run is on our doors. The biggest sports event of Faial attracts once more more than 600 competitors from all around the world. Five distances, the 118k Whalers Great Route, the 65k Ultra Blue Island, the 42k Coast to Coast, the 25k Ten Volcanoes and the 10k Family Trail are open for competition.
Cheer the Participants
If you are not racing, then go out and cheer the participants. It is always a great motivation when you are exhausted, turn around the corner and people are cheering on the way. Where to cheer? The runners not only run up on the Caldeira, there are numerous passages through the villages. Or why not go to one of the refreshment points or the finish line in Capelinhos. Check out the program and the route maps below to find your spot on the routes of the Ultra Blue Island.

An event covering 118 km of trails with hundreds of participants from all around the world would not be possible without volunteers. Join the team of the Azores Trail Run and sign up as volunteer. Follow the link in Facebook or click here to sign up.
