The Carlos Sá Trail Running Centers is a project that arises from all the accumulated experience in organizing trail events, in order to respond to the needs of lovers of this sport (and others), who wish to know a new territory in a completely autonomous way.


It is an organized place with several marked routes, with specific signs homologated by the Portuguese Trail Running Association (ATRP), while guaranteeing the usability of the trails in a safe way.


The purpose is to guide visitors and, at the same time, provide them all the information about the place in which they are, enriching their visit. To promote and give more visibility to this project it will be held the 4th edition of Penacova Trail do Centro.


The Penacova Trail do Centro is organized by Carlos Sá Nature Events® with the support and collaboration of the Penacova Municipality. 

On the 8th November three races will take place: Ultra Trail 43 km, Long Trail 27 km and Short Trail 17 km. There will also be a Solidarity Hike (10 km), whose part of the funds will revert to the Volunteer Firefighters of Penacova. All the races will start at 09:00 am, at Park Verde, near the Volunteer Firefighters of Penacova.
