Escalada do Mendo  2015 - Vidigueira

This is a run up the hill and back down again race of 11 km on and off road in the wine growing area of the lower Alentejo. Today I was running for my Club ACS de São Brás de Alportel with 4 other team mates.

Another 06:30 start to a Sunday as we left the Algarve and made our way to the village of Vidigueira, Rui Costa a successful sprinter was our driver and team mate today.
