LOOKING FOR A CHALLENGE?
Almost back to normal: the running scene in Porto is tremendously active and eclectic, with many well-established and organized races throughout the year - and registrations are now open!
Here's a short list with the most interesting ones, including Porto's marathon (November), Porto half-marathon (September), a couple of shorter races (10 & 15k) 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...!!

NOT A COMPETITIVE RUNNER YOURSELF?
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 any more bling. Some visit Porto for work in weekdays and can't stay for the weekend events.
And then...there's also those who have discovered that running tours are one of the smartest, most time-effective ways to explore a city!
For all runners listed above we try our best to provide running (and social) experiences here in Porto that will go long in memories >>
PS: Standard tours range from 8 to 15kms. A group/corporate 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!
