Aligned with the organizations of some of the most important sporting events in the world, the organization of Serra da Estrela Granfondo is following the evolution of the global health situation and the conditioning that may still exist in 2021 related to massive events.
We believe that to limit the number of participants is the most adjusted and effective measure to match the good experience offered to participants with the health rules compliance that may still be necessary at the time of the event. The maximum limit of participants on the 2021 edition of Serra da Estrela Granfondo will be 1.200.
However, this total number of places will be made available in phases, with the gradual opening of registration slots. Registrations open with a first slot of just 500 places. The opening of the following slots will depend of the evolution of the situation.
Registrations have a different cost, according to the following registration stages:
(01.06.2020 – 24.05.2021)
(25.05.2021 – 27.06.2021)
