The concept of ULTRA MADEIRA is simple... Cross the Island, quickly unifying both ends west and east, with mandatory passage at the mountain massifs, a challenge for anyone how love the sport.The start of the race will be at the most western point of Madeira, at Ponta do Pargo Lighthouse (290m) - Local heritage site - His light will guide the athletes to the long way up until the Forest Park of Fonte do Bispo (10,3km) where the first checkpoint is located, at the beggining of the Paul da Serra plateau.Then runners will follow in alternate ground between roads, singletracks and dirt roads, along the plateau. The next checkpoint its on the other end of the plateau, at the Bica da Cana shelter house (28km).

Along this trail its possible to look at caves dug by hand, used in thepast for protection in case of bad weather (in the past this trail was used on a daily basis to connect the north to the south (São Vicente to Funchal).After the Pico Ruivo checkpoint (47,41km), we follow along the PR1 towards the 3rd highest peak of Madeira, Pico do Areeiro (1818m), one of the most challenge trail in the island and one of the most used by thevisitors, with the mix of grounds that we find, from tunnels, "via ferrata" steps, rock steps, viewpoints, floating trails, endless climbs... well, a coecktail of views and emotions that runners will keep in their minds forever!After getting to Pico Areeiro checkpoint (51,8km), we get to the eastern mountain massif, mostly downhill part, passing by the "Poço da Neve", where in the past ice was keeped, and then carried by mens to Funchal, to use in the hospital and hotels, the crossing the Casa do Areeiro shelter, Chão da lagoa, and then the next checkpoint, Poiso (58,6km)We took again the way down, with views to the north of Madeira (Porto da Cruz and Santana) and quickly get to the next checkpoint, Portela (67,4km), before getting some beautiful dirt roads and singletracks towards to Casa das Funduras shelter (73km), the second to last checkpoint, where its possible to birdwatch along the magic forest surrounding at the Funduras forest.Taking, again, another downhill section that will take us to the Levada do Caniçal (water channel for irrigation), with breathtaking views to Machico valley.

Valley Harvest Marathon
Welcome to the annual Valley Harvest Marathon that will be held in the month of October in Wolfville, NS Canada. This event gets better every year. The organizers are doing a fantastic job and really know how to please the runners. The shirt and medal are very nice and if you are fortunate enough to place in an age group, the prizes will be great. The course is quite scenic with farmland and Minas Basin views. There will a few short up hills, but there some nice gradual downhill sections as well. There will be plenty of aid stations and the course will be very well marshalled. There won't be a lot of spectators on the course, partly due to good traffic control to minimize cars on the route. The crowd support is fantastic when you finish on the track at the Acadia University Stadium. A grandstand full of spectators and a professional announcer make for a memorable finishing experience.
