QUARTEIRA STADIUM FACILITIES
Based at the Quateira Municipal Stadium, this location is an established warm weather training venue. The stadium is located in the resort of Vilamoura, central Algarve and is within 500m of the local marina.
It is an ideal venue for sprinters, hurdlers, middle and long distance runners and long & triple jumpers. Whilst the stadium has high jump and pole vault and throws facilities these are only for supervised competition use, not for training, Road and off road running opportunities are good with excellent trails within 1 km of the track.
