Peneda-Geres Trail Adventure 27 – Kirsten Kortebein

Carlos Sa dances a traditional Portuguese dance called the “vira” after completion of the Peneda-Geres Trail Adventure. Carlos, who founded and organized the race, was just as actively involved–if not more so–in the stages than the competitors. His love for Portugal and for the national park was so tangible throughout the duration of the 8-stage race; he was regularly seen sprinting out of the woods with a grin about 15 minutes before the front runners, making sure that the course was still clear and well-marked.
