Start walking with Porto Saudável

  • Article



The beginning of May marked the comeback of the “Porto Saudável” initiative, and within 48 hours, all 220 applications made available until July were already completed. The high degree of interest from the public led Runporto, the event organiser, jointly with the Municipality of Porto, to open another 20 applications for each Sunday (10 more each group).

The programme includes a 5 km morning walk with the outlining goal of raising people’s awareness on the benefits of excising regularly. Routes vary each session, both to boost interest in different communities in Porto and to promote the discovery of cultural heritage.

Each Sunday, the two groups start the walk at 10 am and at 10.10 am, respectively. Applications to new entries, which are free and open to participants of all ages, are available online.
