Organized by the Trilhos dos Abutres, the Trail Running World Championship 2019, taking place in Portugal on 8 June, is supported by Berg as the main sponsor.

Between June 7 and 9, 2019, the world championship of trail running will be played on Portuguese soil. Top athletes and mountain top athletes will cut the goal of the Trail World Championships 2019 in Miranda do Corvo in the region of Coimbra. A choice that has nothing to chance. After all, it is there that you cross the Trilhos dos Abutres, the circuit known for the hardness of its paths and the sweeping landscapes of the Serra da Lousã. The Associação Abutrica will co-organize this planetary event, in collaboration with the Federação Portuguesa de Atletismo and the Associação Portuguesa de Trail Running, and the International Association of Ultra Runners and the International Trail Running Association.

Berg Outdoor joins the event as the main sponsor of the Trail Running World Championship, the world’s premier ultramarathon mountain event that brings to Portugal selections from more than 55 countries and will mobilize more than 500 athletes.

Diana Teixeira Pinto, marketing director of Berg Outdoor, says: “After Peneda-Gerês, in 2016, the Trail World Championship will return to Portugal, and Berg Outdoor will once again become the main sponsor of the event. It is a natural association for our brand, which since its inception has been supporting athletes and initiatives that contribute to fostering sport and outdoor living, as a perfect example of this global projection event. ”

“In addition to reinforcing the connection with our existing customers, the association with the AbutresTrail World Championships also allows us to present the benefits of our products and innovations to a growing number of people, which is an opportunity to broaden our global footprint and open new markets, “adds Diana Teixeira Pinto.

Tiago Araújo, president of the Associação Abutrica, organizer of the event, said: “We are extremely pleased to be associated with Berg Outdoor, a Portuguese brand that is increasingly present in the international market. It will certainly be an exceptional partnership and we will continue to offer the best to our participants. ”
