What you'll do

Let's meet at the Botanical Garden and walk to the beginning of the trail, one of many within Tijuca National Park. As we walk i will talk a little about the route and what we will do. Once at the entrance of the trail we will run or walk to VISTA CHINESA, 4.5km (2,8 miles), this part of the trail has some climbs. Once on the trail the noise of the cars changes to the quiet sound of the forest. Our next destination is MESA DO IMPERADOR, we will go there by another trail (1,6km - 1 mile). At both places i will tell a little of the history of these places that have been visited for over 100 years. Later we go to PEDRA DA PROA, where we can see a beautiful view of the south zone of Rio de Janeiro. As well as the Chinese view and the emperor's table, a great place to admire and take some pictures. We will go down the same path for some time, until we enter another trail towards some waterfalls, where we will take breaks. Then we return to our meeting point.

Mateus

I have been a trail runner for over 6 years, the trails in Rio de Janeiro have been my school and training place ever since. Workouts always go through some of the most beautiful and trendy tourist spots in the city, but also through lookouts and waterfalls that few people know. In September 2018 I quit my job to travel, went to Patagonia for seven and a half months where I was always on the mountain, hiking and running. I participated in three races, one of which El Cruce finished first. Then, in Brazil, I traveled a few more places. Back in Rio de Janeiro my wish is to show another wonderful side of the city and that besides the beaches we have perfect mountains and trails for running and walking. I speak portuguese, spanish and english.
