Announcement About 2023 World Masters Mountain Running Championship
The 20th World Masters Mountain Running Championships in Telfes is fast approaching (3rd to 5th September) and today we're very happy to announce the venue for the 2023 World Masters. Read on to find out!
The 2023 World Masters Mountain Running Championships will take place on the island of Madeira! As most runners will already know, it's an incredible destination for mountain running, which we look forward to experiencing. Here's a statement from the race director, Nélio Parreira:
“We are very happy to receive this event on our island, in the municipality of Porto Moniz, where other international Mountain Running events have already taken place. And we can’t wait to welcome athletes from the four corners of the earth to participate in this event, that we hope will be an all-round success.
The athletes will be challenged over a course that comprises many types of paths, going from dirt roads, to single tracks along the forest (that provide shade for the athletes), with passes by meadows, and even a short pass by one of the world famous madeiran levadas (small water channels, famous for its hikes), and will finish in the famous and scenic Laurel forest of Fanal, with its weird shaped trees, that attract photographers from all over the world.”
We look forward to bringing you more details in the coming months. Find out about this year's World Masters Mountain Running Championships here (and information regarding Covid-19 if you are travelling there).
