ABOUT LAGOA SWIMRUN

The Covid-19 pandemic has not stopped our sport and this year we will also be in the Algarve, with another stage of our 2021 Circuit, the “Lagoa Swimrun”. Scheduled in the end of October, this will be a unique opportunity to discover and cross the stunning Algarve coast without the usual summer floods.


Starting at the "Ermida da Senhora da Rocha", the athletes will initially run along the Seven Hanging Valleys route, recently elected as the best hiking destination in Europe, with a breathtaking scenery. Towards the end, they will pass through Caminho dos Promontórios route, and finish at the picturesque fishing village of Ferragudo.

Throughout the course, the athletes will see numerous cliffs and rock formations carved in the most varied shapes. They can even explore a handful of heavenly beaches and caves, some of which are only reachable by sea, as is the case of the Benagil Cave, or tunnels excavated by means of impressive pit caves (natural pits that connect the surface of limestone regions and  underground galleries), as is the case of Carvalho Beach. This journey also includes a mandatory passage through the iconic Caneiros Beach, the benchmark picture of the Algarve.


With the autumn still awakening, a mild weather, typical of the Algarve, and an average water temperature of 20 degrees, Lagoa will be the perfect place to close with a golden key the season of Swimrun Portugal 2021.
