Über Madeira Island Ultra Trail

Imagine an island planted in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, 900 km from mainland Portugal and about 600 km off the coast of Morocco. An island where the mountain sometimes kisses the clear blue sea, an island where there are whispering waterfalls, trails, pathways and almost 1500 km of levadas (irrigation channels), a cultural heritage built with the Herculean effort of successive generations who never resigned themselves to embrace the word insulation, an island where there is still a preserved endemic Laurissilva forest, World Natural Heritage by UNESCO, for all of us.

This island exists and has a name: Madeira.

Madeira is a land of unique beauty and countless charms and challenges, no doubt. But experiencing in loco and actively all the dazzle or, at least, the most spectacular scenery on this island is only the privilege of very few.

MIUT® – Madeira Island Ultra Trail will provide an exciting challenge, across the island, from sea-to-sea, in the Northwest-Southeast direction, starting in Porto Moniz, at sea level, with passages by the highest points of the island, then again to sea level, in Machico. A journey that will transport the participants imagination to other times in which the soul of Madeira was not overcome by the vicissitudes of the orography of the island.

Madeira Island Ultra Trail Wissenswertes

It all started in 2008, in what was also the first trail running event ever organized in Madeira. But the truth is, since 2004, there was already a group of members of the Clube de Montanha do Funchal who, every year, had the habit of attempting to cross the island in less than 24 hours. Some of those elements are still today the basis of the executive team of MIUT®.
