2021 Madeira Island Ultra-Trail Live Coverage

The 2021 Madeira Island Ultra-Trail (MIUT) takes place on the Portuguese island of Madeira, located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Morocco. The course is 115 kilometers (72 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– in what amounts to a terrifically diverse course.

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

The race starts at midnight Western European Time on Saturday, November 20. That’s 5:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time on Friday, November 19 in the U.S.
