Aderire 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.

Punti salienti del corso

The departure of the MIUT race will be given at 00:00, in the center of Porto Moniz, traveling, in a first nocturnal phase, by winding footpaths and levadas on the North Coast, towards the plateau of Paúl da Serra – on the Western mountain massif. The first major ascent has a reference point in Fanal. The technical descent to Chão da Ribeira is next and, then, a new long ascent to Estanquinhos. São Vicente is the next passage, before the arrival at Encumeada, where the route enters the Central mountainous massif, but not before making an incursion to Curral das Freiras, before facing the mythical peaks, Ruivo and Areeiro. From there, the route is mostly downwards, with passages at Ribeiro Frio and Portela, after which the Funduras mountain offers endless single tracks towards the technical descent of the Degolada towards the the foothpath of Larano that will take participants to the levada of Caniçal, with a previous passage at Boca do Risco. The final phase, along a levada, will have the backdrop of the Machico valley, with the finish line at the Forum Machico.
