It is already on November 23rd that the first edition of the Monchique Open Trail will take place, a race organized by Monchique Resort & Spa to celebrate the strong connection with the name of the mountain, which is divided into three different events: an 8 km walk, a short trail of 13 km and a long trail of 23 km.
The idea of organizing this event arose from the desire to mark the first year of operation of the hotel under the management of the Discovery Hotel Management brand and it was also the year in which the hotel found its vocation for wellness and sports activities, particularly those that take place outdoors.
With such a strong vocation, a team of skilled professionals and the hotel’s location in the Serra de Monchique, organizing a trail turned out to be a natural way.
Moreover, given the recent past of fires in Monchique that so strongly marked the landscape of the mountains and the collective memory, it was decided to give the 8 km hike a sympathetic nature.
Thus, the € 5 registration fee for the walk will be fully reverted to the Monchique Fire Department. The trail registration fee is € 20.
After the competition, there will be a moment of conviviality, with the awards, animation and music.
For those who wish to stay overnight at Monchique Resort & Spa, there are special accommodation packages, which include the registration fee and massage afterwards.
