The Lagos Wellness Challenge is a sponsored walking event in the western Algarve. Teams of between 4 and 10 members challenge themselves on a picturesque scenic 5-kilometer walking route, to raise money for charities and good causes.
The event is not a race! However, Participants can go as quickly as they like and are encouraged to achieve, in the interests of wellness, their personal best performance.
The event is designed to be as inclusive to a wide variety of participants regardless of age or ability. Walkers can push child strollers or wheelchairs. Wheelchair or any other participants requiring assistance can be accompanied by a registered participant or a companion. Walking with Dogs is also welcomed, provided they are always well behaved and on a leash.
