Wat je gaat doen

Are you ready to run? So do I! But the CoVid19 pandemic changed a fair bit of our lives. Please read carefully the whole description of this experience, to know what are the safety rules, what you should bring with you!

Do you run occasionally? Even when you are on holiday to stay in shape? How about a trying out something new, running in the forest listening to sound of nature and the river by your side! Tap into the world of trail running! This experience will be a soft trail run in the Serras do Porto mountains. Do not worry, you do not need any special gear nor skills for experience. If you run occasionally and have a normal level of fitness, you can do it and enjoy it for sure!

Day trip overview:

- We will meet in Porto than we drive to Valongo with my '80s minivan. This takes up to 15-25 minutes, depending on the traffic.

- We begin our run in the city park of Valongo. Our trail is a beginner level, 10km long loop, light run with 400 m of positive elevation. The pace will be gentle, the idea is not to do hardcore training, but an easy run with good company, to do some exercise during the holidays.

- After the run, we drink a good Portuguese coffee on the way back to Porto.

- I drop you off at pick up point in Porto.
Other things to note
There are some tricky parts on the route, with some stones on the path, but it is completely doable. Having an average fitness and good stability is enough to enjoy this experience. Please bring your face mask and hand sanitizer gel with you. If you don't have, I can provide it to you!

I have started mountain biking when I was 12 years old, and I am riding ever since (23 years now). I was racing during 8 years in MTB OX (Olympic Cross) and I have participated in the World Championship and European Championship in 2003, and several World Cups along the years.

I ride, run and do sports whenever I can. This passion for outdoors eventually led me to change my professional life. I created my own company called Wheel Nuts Cyclotouring and I organize personalized bicycle and walking tours in Portugal, focusing mainly on cycling and mountain biking from beginner to advanced level.

In my free time I explore the Portuguese outdoors. I live here for almost a decade now with my wife and my son, and we consider this awesome country our home now. I would love to share my knowledge and experiences with you!

Waar je naartoe gaat

The experience starts in Valongo and takes place mainly in the Serras do Porto mountains in the outskirts of the city of Porto.

We'll run along rivers, within a eucaliptus forest. We'll see a typical Portuguese village, with less than 10 habitants and houses build from stones.

We'll pass by gold mines from the II-III. century digged by the Romans.

Bottom line: A place rich in history, surrounded by unique beauty of landscapes.

Great trail running experience with András. Lots of nature with great views and some climbing, including a coffee and some pastry after the running. Absolutely recommended!

Andràs is a man with a passion, and it shows. He took us running a beautiful 10k trail in the Valongo, where we could break a sweat feeling completely safe, at our own pace. He shared with us his love for the place, through eucalyptus forests, a tiny village, across the river, above bottomless gold mines, and so much more. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a break away from the city, some good exercise and a well deserved fresh drink afterwards in great company. Ho, also : kick-ass van !
