2019 Madeira Island Ultra-Trail Live Coverage

Live coverage of the 2019 Madeira Island Ultra-Trail.

By on April 24, 2019 | Comments

The 2019 Madeira Island Ultra-Trail (MIUT) takes place on the Portuguese island of Madeira, which is located in the Atlantic Ocean about 600 kilometers (370 miles) off the coast of Morocco. The course is 115 kilometers (71.5 miles) long, has 7,200 meters (23,600 feet) of climbing, and transects the island from roughly west to east. In that distance, runners will find remote and technical singletrack, flat paths next to irrigation canals called levadas, some of the steepest paved roads out there, and everything in between all that–what amounts to a terrifically diverse course.

MIUT begins at midnight on Saturday, April 27 West European Summer Time (or 5 p.m. on Friday, April 26 U.S. Mountain Daylight Time).

The course records are 13:05:44 for the men (François D’Haene, 2017) and 15:00:55 for the women (Caroline Chaverot, 2016).

MIUT is the seventh race of this year’s Ultra-Trail World Tour, and is a ‘series’-level race.
