“Ultra Skyrunning Madeira is undoubtedly one of my favourite races, in particular the start. To begin the race with head torches on in Santana and then go straight to the top of the island where you are treated to a glorious sunrise over the top of the clouds is an experience I wont be forgetting quickly. The course takes you from summit to sea and up again featuring all types of terrain, including a short section in a river! It is safe to say there is no other skyrace like.”
