MIUT 2022 is coming…

The 13th edition of this amazing race starts at Saturday 0:00am from the northern Porto Moniz village towards Machico on southeast of the island.

This year for the MIUT115 there are some elite runners trying to get the golden medal or even for the podium.

Looking on Men side we have the ITRA leader Jim Walmsley as the greatest favorite for the win, but we can also expect some close chase from Andreas Reiterer, Thibaut Garrivier, Sebastian Krogvig, Mathieu Blanchard, among other great runners.

On Women side we have the ITRA leader Courtney Dauwalter and the French Audrey Tanguy will for sure fight hard for the win, but her countrywoman Maryline Nakache and the Swiss Kathrin Goetz might have a word to say, as well some other strong ladies.

Regarding to the MIUT85 race, Tom Evans and Remigio Huaman are the favorites for the win, but Nicolas Gourdon and the Portuguese Tiago Romão will for sure dispute the race. On women Kelly Wolf is the favorite for the win.

For the MIUT60 the competition will be strong, both on men and women, since we have Stephen Kersh, Luis Alberto Hernando, Sheila Aviles Castaño and Yngvild Kaspersen as favorites.

The shorter distances of 42km and 17km will be for sure super fast as always, since a big part of the courses are flat and downhill.

It will be a big event, that’s for sure! MIUT 2022 will have around 3.200 runners from almost 50 countries coming to Madeira Island to run their races and some of them also bring the family to spend some nice holidays as well.

Meanwhile, all year around you have our trail running tours to have some fun! Go ahead and book your running tour!
