The athletes will run along one of three non-stop routes: theUltra Marathon of 150 km, the Salt Marathon of 70 km and the traditional Eco Marathon of 42 km. The Boa Vista Ultra Trail will be a memorable race in such a harsh and suggestive environment.
There is a great news for trail runners: the appointment with the Boa Vista Ultra Trail is confirmed for December 2, 2017. The Boa Vista Ultra Trail fascinates for the beauty of the routes and the landscape, as well as for the atmosphere full of enthusiasm and vitality.
Boa Vista is a real paradise that is just less than 500 kilometers off the coasts of Senegal. The island has about 12,000 inhabitants and the low percentage of settlements in the territory is whar makes the race course wild and unspoiled.
Three routes, three adventures.

The Ultra Marathon (150 km) is the main race: the athletes will carry out a complete tour of the Boa Vista island, passing through breathtaking scenery as the artificial desert of Viana and picturesque spots like the old village Espinguera, which once was the site of a small fishing community.
The Salt Marathon (70 km) offers the same fascinating sights along the route: the arrival located in close proximity to one salt pond of the island.
The Eco Marathon (42 km) gives the opportunity to enjoy the quiet and peaceful beauty of a pleasant place, including nature, ocean and desert.
