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 Penacova Trail do Centro is organized by Carlos Sá Nature Events® with the support and collaboration of the Municipal Chambers of Penacova, Mortágua and Mealhada and the Mata do Buçaco Foundation.
On the 4th September 2021 it will be held the PTC Prologue 2,3km at Mata do Buçaco and on the 5th September three races will take place: Ultra Trail 45 km, Long Trail 30 km and Short Trail 17 km. There will also be a Solidarity Hike (12 km), whose part of the funds will revert to the Volunteer Firefighters of Penacova.
