The city of Quarteira will again be featured in the national sport with the 8th São Silvestre de Quarteira, which will take place on December 28th, starting at 8:30 p.m., in Praça do Mar.
It is recalled that S. Silvestre of Quarteira was created in 2011 and maintained by the Quarteira Night Runners (informal group of race and walk). At the beginning it counted on about 50 participants, being now more than 1,000 athletes to cross the avenues of Quarteira by the sea to burn the calories of Christmas, in a cold night of December.
Calling it "Proof" the event is popular, integrates the walk part (5km) and race (10km), and accepts participants from 8 to 80 years old, free participation. There is no classification, however, there is a time and classification control but it is merely informative, which is only for athletes who are not accustomed to participating in official competitions to participate together with elite athletes.
A success in previous editions, one of the characteristics of São Silvestre de Quarteira is the famous cake-king and the hot tea at the end.
The event, or proof, as you wish to call it, remains a joint organization of the Quarteira Night Runners, Free Challenge, Parish Council of Quarteira and has the support of the Municipality of Loulé.
