i will do the ULTRA TRAIL ALDEIAS DO XISTO this month on the 10th of november in Lousa. I have already booked the trail and i’m looking forward to do the 82 km run and the 5000 meters in height. It gives you 3 points for the UTMB. Seems like Lousa has a very nice landscape and the weather will be probable about 15-17 degrees during the day.
The run will start at 6 o’clock and i will have 20 hours altogether.
