MACHICO 2024 EMORRC and PORTO SANTO 2024 EMACNS – TWO WEEKENDS OF SPORTING EMOTIONS

    Six full days of competitions, opening and closing ceremonies, 1091 athletes/event, 17
    Countries in Machico and 29 Countries in Porto Santo, many accompanyng people,
    ceremonies and time to enjoy and have fun: despite the logistical difficulties and the
    increase in costs due to the coincidence with the Flower Festival in Funchal, the Machico
    2024 Off Road Running championship and the Porto Santo 2024 Non Stadia
    championship can be considered two great and successful events!
    And this thanks to the athletes, thanks to the great effort made by the Team of AARAM
    (Association of Madeira Athletics) led by Egidio Olim, thanks to the LOC led with Luis
    Policarpo Gouveia and thanks to the EMA Team, with the Council represented by VP
    Competition Giovanni Tracanelli, VP Finances Ercan Ozkan and the General Secretary
    Clarisse Duarte.
    Two championships, with mountain running, vertical run, trail run, road race, cross country,
    race walk and nordic walking competitions, mean an incredible technical, logistical, IT,
    financial effort for the Local Organising Committee, and a huge number of volunteers and
    medical and safety officers.

    EMORRC 2024 MACHICO
    The European Masters Off Road Running championship Machico 2024 started with the
    official presentation at the Machico city hall and finished with the closing ceremony and the
    passage of the fleg to the next Organiser, the city of Nicolosi in the beautiful Sicily island –
    Italy. In the middle three great events: the mountain run, the trail run and, for the first time,
    the vertical run. The athletes had the opportunity to compete but also to enjoy the beauties
    and the nature of Madeira, an authentic paradise.
    Woman and Man of the championships? Not only one, but to remember the exploits of
    Shaban Mustafa (BUL, three gold medals), Barbara Taibon, Monica Carl, Matthieu
    Gandolfi, the 2023 EBM Charlotte Cotton and Cedric Mariethoz, Martin Alvarez Espinar
    and the Ironwoman Karin Freitag, winner of the trail run but gold medalist in road race and
    race walk too.

    EMACNS 2024 PORTO SANTO
    Similar program for the Non Stadia championship, with opening and closing ceremony in
    the beautiful center of Vila Baleira, just in front of the magnificent beach of Porto Santo
    Island.

    Exciting challenges in Porto Santo too: 10K road race, half marathon, 10K and 20K race
    walk, cross country relay and, for the first time out of Italy, the nordic walking
    championship. To remind the participation of a delegation of the Vatican City Athletics. And
    many “heroes” in Porto Santo too: the one already mentioned Karin Freitag, the overall
    winners of both race walk competitions Bianca Schenker (GER) and Tomasz Lipiec (POL),
    Andreia Santos, Sergio Salinero, the Figueiredo brothers and the Nunes brothers. Closing
    ceremony without passage of the flag: the EMA Council is still evaluating the biddings and
    the manifestations of interest. Stay tuned, the next Organiser will be announced before
    next August.
