This event, organized by AARAM – Madeira Athletics Association in partnership with AMRAM – Madeira’s Municipalities Association, goes around the island in about 167 km (100 miles) allowing to discover Madeira in a singular race. This is an ultra endurance non-stop race with absolute respect for nature and the environment.

The race goes mostly along the coast and along roads ranging from asphalt, dirt roads to trails. The route gives the possibility to discover the amazing “Caminho Real nr. 23”, a pre-republican road that goes around the Island. Its first section was built in 1867 and although modern roads have rendered it obsolete is now explored on delightful walking tours, blending the natural beauty of the Island with the historical and cultural context of Madeira. Fountains, chapels, bridges, water mills, narrow paths and levadas make of this Ultra Marathon more than a race, an inspiration!

The event takes place annually in late November or early December and lasts for three days. It includes, besides the Ultra Marathon, with a circular format, the Eco Madeira Marathon and Eco Madeira Mini Marathon, both with a straight format.
