Détails de la course

Points forts de la course

The Ultra Blue Island® race course takes you on a journey through the diverse and dynamic landscapes of Faial Island. The course is designed to showcase the best of the island's natural beauty, from volcanic craters and historical paths to lush forests and majestic ocean views. Every section of the race offers unique challenges and visual rewards, making it an unforgettable experience for every participant. Here are some highlights of the course: - Caldeira do Faial: This massive volcanic crater is one of the most iconic features of the race. Running along its rim provides a unique perspective of the island's volcanic origins. - Capelinhos Volcano: This area features the most recent volcanic eruption (1957-58) and offers a stark and moon-like landscape, providing an almost surreal running experience. - Coastal Views: The course offers expansive views of the North Atlantic Ocean, and the contrast of the deep blue sea against the lush green landscapes of the island is a constant reminder of the unique location of the race. - Ancient Whalers' Paths: These paths offer a glimpse into the island's past whaling activities. - Forest Trails: The route winds through dense, verdant forests, providing shade and a change in scenery. - Volcanic Terrain: Sections of the course run over rough volcanic terrain, testing runners' agility and endurance. - Grasslands and Fields: The course also takes runners through open grasslands and cultivated fields, showcasing the island's agricultural side and providing a different running surface. - Coast-to-Coast Experience: For some race distances, participants experience the thrill of running from one coast of the island to the other, encompassing various landscapes. - Capelo and Varadouro: These areas are known for their natural beauty. Capelo offers views of lush vegetation, and Varadouro showcases the striking contrast of black volcanic rocks against the ocean. The race ends at Capelinhos Volcano, an iconic and dramatic site known for its lunar-like landscape and historical significance due to the 1957-58 eruption. This finish line offers a spectacular and unforgettable conclusion to the race, symbolizing the strength and resilience required to complete such a challenging course. In conclusion, the Ultra Blue Island® race is not just a test of physical endurance but a journey through the rich natural and cultural tapestry of Faial Island.

Our first time participating in a trail run as we are 'asphalt kickers' and had the best time! Of course the Azores are beautiful as are the people in culture and kindness. We did the 25K and I was stressed as I usually run a 10:15 or so and was hoping to finish in 4 hours, BUT, I was not fully prepared for the technical aspect of the trail (stairs, steps, mud) so completed in 5.5 hrs with a available time of 7 hours. Not bad for my first trail run. Would i do it again? Hell Yeah! The sights are astounding; the aid stations (fried chicken, hard boiled eggs, Coke, cake, chips) kept me well fueled, the other runners with their politeness of passing/allowing them to pass on single track and helpful gestures by other runners was just remarkable. Azores are beautiful and much to do on the island of Faial. See you in 2023!

It was grueling as my first trail run.
