The Madeira Island Ultra Trail (MIUT) is one of the best and most spectacular trail running competitions in the world. With stunning scenery and a challenging course, this race attracts runners from all over the planet to compete in one of the most incredible islands in the world.
MIUT was created in 1998, with the aim of offering a challenging mountain race for runners, while also taking advantage of the best trails the island has to offer. Since then, this race has grown in the regional panorama, becoming, in recent years, a reference of Trail Running, integrating until 2022 the old Trail Running World Circuit – Ultra Trail World Tour.
MIUT – One of the best Trail Running events of the planet
The MIUT course is one of the reasons why it is considered one of the best mountain races in the world. The main race trails, which complete the crazy and challenging 115km, take participants through dense forests, rugged mountains, passing Pico Ruivo, the highest peak in Madeira Island, offering runners spectacular views of the island’s mountain massif. In addition, the course is extremely challenging, with the approximately 7100 metres of accumulated positive ascent, which demands a lot of skill, endurance and determination from the athletes, making it an exciting and satisfying experience for those who complete the race.
Another reason why MIUT is considered one of the best races for participants is its organization. The MIUT team works tirelessly to ensure that the race is safe and successful, providing runners with all the support they need during the race, this is all thanks to a huge amount of support from the local community, who join the event on a voluntary basis.
In addition, MIUT has an incredible and welcoming atmosphere. With runners from all over the world, competing together, the race is an opportunity for sharing the passion for the sport.
In resume, MIUT is one of the benchmarks of Trail Running worldwide, due to its stunning scenery, challenging course, excellent organization and welcoming atmosphere. Are you a fan of Trail Running? Then it is time to participate in one of MIUT – Madeira Island Ultra Trail races.
