ABOUT TÂMEGA SWIMRUN

2021, despite all the uncertainties and setbacks, was even the debut year of Swimrun in Northern Portugal. In a demanding and totally new course for all #swimrunners, we had good moments of competition and companionship between all participants as well as the debut of the "Swimrun Kids" aspect that we want to consolidate in 2022.


The race location is Entre-os-rios, a historic town in the municipality of Penafiel, located at the confluence of the Tâmega and Douro rivers. In the race course, you will run along the banks of the Tâmega, starting from Entre-os-Rios marina and moving up the river to the basin of the Torrão dam, crossing trails with breathtaking views along the riverbed and hopping between the banks of the Municipalities of Penafiel and Marco de Canaveses.


The passage at the highest point in the village of Rio de Moinho - Miradouro da Capela do Senhor dos Remédios - will be one of the points where you will be able to appreciate the whole course you have already n as well as dazzle the goal on the other side of Rio. The pre-summer mild temperatures in June will give a special touch to the surrounding nature mirrored in the reflection of the Tâmega River. The arrival of this adventure will be in the Park of Alpendorada and Matos.

 

Tâmega Swimrun will feature again the “Swimrun Kids” format, where the youngest can get in touch with the swimrun, sharing this experience with their older partner. 

The race organization is being assured by Paredes Aventura with the collaboration of the Swimrun Portugal Association, which since the creation of the first National Circuit wished to include a stage to the north of Portugal with the aim of attracting even more participants for this sport.
