Keeping the tradition, Sport Comércio e Salgueiros will organise the 63rd edition of Volta a Paranhos, this time in a virtual format that will last for a week, between 2 and 8 December.

The road race organised uninterruptedly for the longest time in Portugal thus safely crosses the borders of the parish of Paranhos, inviting the participation of all athletes and sportsmen, anywhere in the country or in the world.

Traditionally held on the bank holiday of December 8th, Volta a Paranhos honors its legacy and, even in a different model, will mark the 109 years of Sport Comércio e Salgueiros.

Although without the usual competitive nature, the organiser challenges each one of the participants “to maintain a healthy, supportive and community spirit within the difficult context in which we are currently living”, as emphasized Gil Almeida, president of Sport Comércio e Salgueiros.

The public can choose between two different options: the 10 km race, for those over 18 years old, or the 5 km walk, for all ages.

Registration for the virtual run ends on December 1st and can be made on the official website of Volta a Paranhos.
