The Azores islands are considered to be one of the great secrets kept on earth. Their location, which for a long time made them not easy to reach, not calling many attentions, was also responsible for keeping this piece of the Atlantic unexplored. The Archipelago of the Azores was selected as the second best islands in the world for Sustainable Tourism by National Geographic Traveller. The Azores are indeed the perfect destination for someone who wants a lifetime experience surrounded by living elements – unexplored nature. The archipelago has nine islands: São Miguel, Santa Maria, Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico, Faial, Flores e Corvo – locals say each one of them a whole life might not be enough to get to know all of the corners of each of them. The azores maritime climate is temperate – it can vary from 16º (60º) in Winter to 26º (79º) in Summer. The mild temperature of the sea is influenced by Atlantic sea currents – it goes from 16ºC to 22ºC. In December the average temperature is 15ºC and humidity rounds 70%. On an average day, there are 3 to 4 hours of daylight in Winter and 7 to 8 hours in Summer. Rain periods are frequent throughout the year, though probabilities are higher in winter. There are some climate changes in short periods of time: during the day, sun, wind, rain may appear alternatively or even together. EPIC Trail Run Azores is a trail race that takes place on the biggest island of the archipelago: São Miguel - with 64,7 km in length, 8 to 15 km width and 140.000 inhabitants. The altimetric profile is shaped by the three main mountain ranges: Tronqueira Mountain; Fogo mountain and sete Cidades mountain – East/West direction, separated by a low platform named Picos area, between the last to mountains. In this fourth edition the race has an almost totally renewed route with East - West direction privileging the most mountainous and challenging region of the island.
