Participating in events organized by Runporto/PAC – Porto Antistress Clube is fun and healthy.

The emergence of infection by the coronavirus (COVID-19) has completely changed the social posture of humanity and forced the cancellation of sporting events.

This opportunity to attend the events and participate in them must be used with rigor, responsibility and excellence. Lifestyle habits have changed, just as participation in races has changed.

Runporto wants to continue providing races where people have fun and feel safe. The rules mentioned here can be considered strict and restrictive, but there is nothing more restrictive than the absence of the race.

Runporto, participants and auxiliary staff now have a new challenge. It is not enough to reach the goal. Now, we want to reach the winners goal, also about the virus. The responsibility belongs to all of us!

Everyone's safety is our priority!
