The Compressport UTM - Ultra Trail of Marão comes to provide a truly adventurous challenge provided by walking through the most fearsome mountains and the most wild ridges of this mountain range, sometimes by snow or by rock, limited by the Tâmega (west), Corgo (east) and Douro (south) rivers. Rails filled with history that transport us to the imaginary of other times and make us realize just how bad this mountains are to its people. People of sacrifice and simplicity. So never give in to difficulties. Dream. Accept the challenge. Believe. And reach for Tâmega's preciousness.
Everything unfolds around the marvelous view of the Marão (the entrance to a Wonderful Kingdom) and its foothills: Alvão, Aboboreira, Matos and Meia Via. They are aggressive mountains of singular beauty, where streams of crystalline water beautifully flow, you'll also find wondrous natural landscapes and villages of pure charm.
This race will share part of the course and emotions with the longest route; from Covelo do Monte to the Aboboreira mountain range you will seek other paths, that will make you discover more secrets.
Our personality stays intact. A short and challenging course. Secular rails, rural villages, magic woods and all the charm that the mountain range of the Aboboreira has to give us.
