On October 7th, the President of the Association for the Historical and Tourist Development of the Lines of Torres Vedras, José Alberto Quintino, was present at the Association of the Handicapped Armed Forces to celebrate the partnership protocol for the realization of the sports event "Torres Vedras Lines Running Challenge".
This is an international event, of a historical-military character, which will have the presence of Portuguese and foreign participants and the involvement of the Ministry of National Defense.
The recognized appetite for racing in "TRAIL" events, combined with an enviable diversified historical path in stunning landscapes that marginalize the effort to be carried out, allow the inclusion of this event in the annual calendar of major sporting events.
Recognizing that it is imperative to establish initiatives aimed at boosting and cooperating between public and private entities of proven credibility and prestige, the representatives of the following entities signed the protocol: The Ministry of National Defense, through the General-Director for National Defense Resources, the Armed Forces General Staff, the Armed Forces Handicapped Association, Xistarca - Sporty Promotions and Publications Lda., the Historical Route of the Lines of Torres Vedras and Endurance Portugal, AREP - Association of Portuguese Equestrian Resistance.
Predictably, the next event will take place on May 22nd, 2021 and comprises the following events: 100 km, line race and courier; Marathon, pedestrian and equestrian race; 10 km, running; and 5 km, a test for the disabled.
