First Dragão Run will take place this Sunday

​The first edition of Corrida do Dragão, an initiative held in connection with the celebrations of the 125th anniversary of FC Porto, goes to the streets on Sunday, October 14th.

The event is scheduled to start at 10am in Avenida de Fernão de Magalhães, next to the headquarters of Tertúlia do Dragão - a venue for the members and fans of FC Porto to socialise - and ends at the Dragão Stadium.

It includes a 10km run and a 5km walk, open to families wishing to run with a dragon on their heart and is limited to 5,000,000 entries. The route features a descent and ascent next to Praça das Flores and heading back in Jardim da Corujeira. The second part of the race will take the athletes uphill in Rua da Constituição to Marquês, and finally, to Estádio do Dragão passing through Combatentes and Praça Velásquez.

Along with the race, there will be several fun activities at the club's stadium.

Corrida do Dragão is organised by GlobalSport and Tertúlia do Dragão and has the municipal support via the company PortoLazer. As usual in this type of events, there will be traffic restrictions on Sunday morning in that area (see more here).
