ABOUT VALE DO LOBO SWIMRUN

Vale do Lobo is one of the most important luxury real estate and tourist developments in Europe, with a history of success spanning over 55 years. As a self-sufficient resort of reference, it is an unparalleled destination of choice for all visitors to the Algarve region.

This resort has always been an election place for physical activity and sport, known for its excellent golf (two 18-hole golf courses), tennis tournaments, with a variety of Spa/Fitness Center facilities providing its users excellent sporting conditions, in a unique location by the sea.

Adding a vast surrounding natural space, through the creation of routes and trails for walking, running or cycling, this will be a new place to discover in swimrun mode with some urban sections and a unique natural environment in the municipality of Loulé.

This will be a very diverse route where athletes will experience the combination of trails and natural elements such as the fantastic beaches of Falésia, Vale do Lobo and Ancão, with some urban sections as the Vilamoura Marina and the Quarteira promenade, as well as the iconic golf courses and boardwalks of Vale do Lobo. All swimming sessions will take place along the entire beautiful coast of the Algarve.

With summer still showing its last rays of heat at the end of September, this will be another opportunity for our #swimrunners to discover another route in the Algarve, with perfect conditions in terms of climate and sea water temperature.
