Run Azores - October  7-9, 2022 

Like so many other events, Run Azores was a victim of the COVID pandemic in 2020 and 2021. We are delighted to be returning with this wonderful running challenge in 2022, albeit with a few modifications. The key change is that we have reduced the event from four to three days and it will now run over an extended weekend rather than mid-week to make it accessible to more local runners. 
The three days of racing will now start on Friday evening with the Ponta Delgada 5K, followed by the Serra Tronqueira 16K trail run on Saturday with the Challenge reaching its climax with the testing Volcano Half Marathon on Sunday.  The three days of racing add up to 42K and packaged together willl feel like one of the toughest marathons you've ever run. 

But  Run Azores is more than simply about the running. It's an excuse to discover, explore and experience these remarkable Atlantic islands at ground level in combination with a luxurious and island holiday.Run Azores 6jpg
