Meeting point – (carpark on Rua Teixeira da Mota behind the marina)
The Sunday Social Walks are free events for Madrugada Members and their guests. They have been introduced as part of the Madrugada Membership Programme to:
  • Develop a social network
  • Explore and enjoy the Algarve’s beautiful and diverse scenery, culture and heritage
  • Promote a healthy and active lifestyle
  • Raise awareness and support for Madrugada
 

Meeting Details

  • Meeting point – Big Tarmac Carpark behind Marina on Rua Teixeira da Mota
  • Time – meeting from 9.20am, the walk will head out at 9.30am.

 

Walk Details

  • Walk leader – Gilly Grateley, Madrugada member and volunteer
  • Distance – the walk is approx. 6kms long, half on road and track as well as on the boardwalk.
  • Pace – it should take 2 to 2.5 hours to complete, including short stops to take on water and gather the pack.
  • Terrain – this walk is a local one to get back into the swing of things.  We will cover both road and the boardwalk with a small climb around the back of Meia Praia but no significant hills.
  • Essential equipment – drinking water, sunscreen or waterproofs (depending on the weather) and good/appropriate footwear.
  • Recommended equipment for walks in general includes –sunglasses and sunscreen, a hat, insect repellent, layers for warmth, a waterproof coat, spare socks! for some a walking stick is a good idea, especially on walks with sharper climbs or descents.

 

Etiquette

  • The walks are free social meetups, led by a volunteer and those attending will be expected to assume responsibility for their own transport, equipment, health, walking ability, liability, refreshments, guests, dogs etc. – participants will be asked to complete a registration sheet before the walk, which will include a liability waiver.
  • Members are welcome to bring guests for one walk, which we hope will encourage them to sign up for membership and walk with us again.
  • Well behaved dogs are welcome and will be the responsibility of their owner.

We look forward to seeing you, regards, Madrugada AG.
