— pt281+ ultramarathon film report
Someone once said “Never tell me sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon”.
Like great Historic Portugueses that discover the world, the challenge was for competitors to discover the Portuguese land by themselves. And they did it! As the name implies, this 281km adventure in Portuguese ground, in Belmonte, has an extremely beautiful nature throughout the way. This specific location was once the beginning of great conquers from our beloved and iconic portuguese Pedro Álvares Cabral! You’ll have to earn it, as they did, with great physical effort as it’s not just a walk in the woods, it’s a huge quest to victory! We used all our tools to capture the courage, determination and spirit of conquest that these amazing athletes exales. It wasn’t easy, we also strive to the limit! But like them, we we did it!
