Über WHALERS' GREAT ROUTE ULTRA-TRAIL® by Azores Trail RUN®

***This event has been POSTPONED until OCT 30 because of the COVID-19 pandemic***

The Whalers’ Great Route Ultra-Trail® is an amazing course situated in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, in the Azores, Portugal, on the island of Faial. With 118K and 5000m of positive slop, this challenging ultra-trail captures nature at its best!

The expansive view to the ocean, the majestic volcanic craters that formed this island and the historical passages of the ancient whalers tell the story of this land and its people.

From the natural blue of the ocean to the vastness of green from its forests and fields, the black sands of the last volcanic eruption that grew this island, to the pallet of colours man reflected on their homes are just some of the splendours you will experience on this journey.

You will be left with a feeling of having travelled from the earth to the moon and back. You will be mentally stimulated, physically exhausted and personally rewarded only yearning to repeat this amazing course that is the Whalers’ Great Route.

Whalers' Great Route is part of Discovery Races by Ultra-Trail World Tour.
