Information Flyer

Madeira is, of course, no stranger to international mountain running competitions, having hosted the European Mountain Running Championships in 2002 and 2015 and the European Masters Championship in 2020.

The races will be held on the sunnier part of the island, the municipality of Calheta, on the southwestern shore of the island, known for its nature and great weather.

This year the World Masters Championship adopts a new 2 race format, one for the Classic Uphill race, with an approximate length of 9km, and another for the Long Distance race, with an approximate length of 32km.

The races are open to all runners between 35 and 79 years of age and are organised by the World Mountain Running Association in collaboration with the Madeira Athletics Association.

All athletes aged 35 to 79 years old, registered with their National Athletics Federations, and that are not punished or suspended by National or International Federations, are eligible to participate in the competition. There will be no limit of participants.


Registrations will be made through the Lap2Go platform, on the official events website.
