Congratulations to all runners.

Your participation in the race was a success. Maintaining a regular physical activity and contact with nature is essential to ensure a healthy lifestyle, so important in these times. This trail is one of the most technical trails on the island of São Jorge. The descent requires caution and the ascent… it’s not for everyone. And for that, all participants deserve our respect.

The results are in the table below.

The Dragon Island Trail Club wants to give a special word to the teenagers who participated. We know the future of the sport is in their hands. And for that, they received a special award: a Dragon Island Trail Club T-shirt, which you may wear with pride! It’s well deserved.

The winner of the race is Nelson Quadros. Congratulations!
