A total of 60 athletes are putting their minds and bodies to the test in a 300 kilometre ultra-marathon that started on Thursday afternoon.

Participants are running along the Via Algarviana trail that will take them from the Guadiana River in the east to Cape St. Vincent in the west. According to the Algarve Trail Running association, an optimistic estimate is that a third of runners finish the race. Most of the athletes are Portuguese, but there are also participants from Spain, Brazil, Ecuador, Uruguay and Scotland.
