The 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 these 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.
They are harsh mountains of singular beauty, where among the supplies run streams of crystal clear water, there are sweeping natural landscapes and villages of pure charm. Marão's Vertical KM and Senhora da Serra await you!
An adventure through towering mountains that defy your physical strength and where only the most vigorous will achieve victory.
This race, from Ansiões forward, shares the entire course with UTM Endurance.
It’s a very challenging race with two very tough initial climbs: up to Alto das Veias, followed by the Vertical KM of Marão and Sra. da Serra. On the path of more secrets, you’ll course through the heart of Marão. Don’t doubt the toughness of this challenge, as Marão will mark you as one of the hardest races you’ve dared to do.
Our personality remains intact. A short and challenging course.
