It is 1001km, in 14 days of a country with almost 1000 years of history.

The Route

Running across Portugal.

Portugal is a nearly 1000-year-old country with the oldest border in Europe and one of the most stable in the world. It is 725 years old.

To cross this country, is also to cross the history and culture of a nation, which despite being very small, has contributed in a very significant way to the world as we know it today. Our challenge is to cross this whole country, or just half of it, running in a self-suficient, GPS guided basis. The planned route has more than 1000km through continental Portugal’s interior, or just over 500km for those who opt for the “Half PT1001”.

A real trip around Portugal.
