Around Piodão, there are several trails to discover. Short trails begining and ending at Piodão are also available.
In the middle of some trails you have the opportunity to have a bath on the clean waters of the river.
Around Piodão there are also some 4x4 trails.
Both races are very technical, with difficult climb and descent. A good preparation is needed.
On the other hand, if the running rythm is not very fast, it's the best way to admire Piódão and the region around...
Every year an organization called Terras de Aventura organizes two running events in this village:
- Cross da Serra do Açor (20Km)
- Raide Torre- Piódão (31Km)
(On the picture I'm nr 12)
Equipment: Both races take place during summer, however, due to the altitude it's wise to bring some long sleeve running shirt... just in case!
Piódão is a wild area lost in the mountains, inviting to a close contact with nature. You don't need to go far - any short stroll around the village will provide a fabulous scenery.
