LOOKING FOR A CHALLENGE?
The running scene in Porto is tremendously active and eclectic, with many well-established and organized races throughout the year. Here's a short list with 8 of the most interesting ones, including Porto marathon (November), Porto half-marathon (September), a couple of 10ks and specially selected introductory videos of their previous editions.
We've even included an orienteering event and a 'one-of-a-kind-mad-two-stages-uphill-race' named Porto a Subir...!! Tap 'read more' to see the videos!

NOT A COMPETITIVE RUNNER?
There are many reasons why some people avoid races: some of us prefer a relaxed run, without the pressure of competition and the crowds. Some have a medal hanger that can't bear anymore bling or they're visiting Porto for work during the week. And then there are those who have discovered that running tours are one of the smartest, most time-effective ways to explore a city. For all of them, here in Porto, we try our best to provide running (and social) experiences that will go long in memories >>
PS: Standard tours range from 8 to 15kms. A bespoke tour is also possible: you can have a custom designed route with 10, 20 or a max. of 30kms or even a multi-day/multi-stage run, including the city and its periphery coastal areas!
