Starting at the white sandy beach of Machico we starting the ascent of Pico do Facho to contemplate its magical views over Machico bay and valleys. We’ll quickly see ourselves running Machico’s Levada towards Boca do Risco. From there on, the views over the ocean and the green that compose the high ground over us, will set the tone for our climb to Funduras.
There, we’ll run deep inside the forest singletracks until we reach Degolada, a steep downhill singletrack challenge, that will put your quads to the test.
This last downhill lead us to Vereda do Larano. With sea in one side and mountain in the other, we get to run some good 8 Kms in a Jurrasic Park movie set like scenario.
At the end of Vereda do Larano we’ll start our way back to Levada de Machico with its gorgeous views over the city and end up this cool cinematographic running experience.
We end this amazing adventure with a dive in the ocean.
