Madeira Skyrace - Race Trip

Welcome to the Madeira Skyrace – Race Trip: Your Journey to Skyrunning Triumph

Nestled within the stunning environs of Santana, the renowned Madeira Skyrace unfolds. This highly technical mountain race features precipitous slopes and intricate trails, offering a remarkably advanced level of competition in the realm of Skyrunning sports.

Conquer the Peaks, Embrace the Challenge

The Madeira Skyrace holds a position of eminence within the esteemed Skyrunner World Series, an assembly of the most arduous and acclaimed skyrunning races across the globe.

Prepare to be entranced by sweeping vistas of dramatic cliffs, luxuriant forests, and crystalline waters that grace the island’s breathtaking landscapes.

The course of the Madeira Skyrace presents an exceptional fusion of technical segments, steep ascents, and rapid descents, thereby constituting the ultimate trial for impassioned skyrunners. It authentically stands as a testament to their abilities and perseverance as they master the challenging topography of Madeira.

This race unquestionably demands prowess, and the training and preparations you undertake prior to the event hold paramount significance. This pertains not only to the training regimens you pursue at home but also to the specialized training that must be undertaken in the unique environment of Madeira.

With race distances ranging from 10 to 45 km, there exists a race tailored to your fitness level and Skyrunning experience. Join Team Arduua for a weekend immersed in the captivating skyrunning culture of Madeira, alongside kindred spirits in the running community.

The MSR (3600 D+) 45 km race is an exceedingly demanding and challenging option, suitable for those with prior experience in Skyrunning or Ultra-trail races.

The SSR (1672 D+) 23 km race is well-suited for newcomers to Skyrunning, offering a fantastic introduction to this exhilarating sport.

The FSR (617 D+) 10 km race is the perfect choice for beginners, friends, or partners looking to take part in the excitement.

An Unforgettable Experience Awaits

Beyond the race itself, we will seize the opportunity to revel in and explore the astounding diversity of this island. On the Friday before the race, we will embark on a delightful group excursion to Pico Ruivo, the island’s highest peak at 1861 meters above sea level. This will involve exploring parts of the race routes, fostering camaraderie, and capturing memorable photos. We’ll drive to a higher elevation and then hike (as this is intended to be a rest day activity).

This outing will also grant you the privilege of spending quality time with Team Arduua, including our Coaches, providing a valuable learning experience.

On the evening preceding the race, a “pre-race session” will be held, during which the coaches will delve into race strategy and nutrition. This will be your chance to pose inquiries to our esteemed Coaches.

Prepare for Success

Undoubtedly, this race presents a formidable challenge, making the training and preparations you undertake indispensable. This holds true for both the training routines you follow at home and the specialized training necessary within the distinctive environment of Madeira.

Arduua will be by your side throughout your journey, guiding every step. We extend Personal Online Coaching as well as a training camp (Camp Madeira) right here in Madeira, affording you the invaluable opportunity to traverse the Madeira Skyrace route alongside us and the rest of the team. If the training camp appeals to you, please explore the Madeira Skyrace Experience package, which encompasses both the Camp and Race trip.

Join Us Today!

Don’t delay in embracing this challenge and uniting with Team Arduua! Conquer the trails, elevate your skills, and immerse yourself in the incredible world of skyrunning.
