The Extreme Gerês Marathon isn’t supposed to be like other marathons. It is unique in the world!
What makes it different from the others? The specific characteristics of the place where it is held – the roads of the only Portuguese National Park, right in the middle of Gerês. In this marathon, joining speed to elevation gain creates a substantially different and higher difficulty.

Running in Gerês is always a charming experience, whatever the season, but the colour palette painting the National Park at the end of autumn creates such stunning and breath-taking landscapes that make this race as beautiful as hard!
