The LOC President welcome Message Ribeira Brava 2019
The Autonomous Region of Madeira organizes for the second time the European Cup of Combined Events, 1st and 2nd Leagues, with honour and privilege. The inaugural edition that brought together two Leagues, took place in 2015 on this Island. The track is in the Madeira Sports Complex. It is a splendid place, in the middle of nature, where calm and tranquillity reigns, which is the ideal for this type of event. We remind you that in the 2015 edition, there were dozens of personal records.
Madeira Island already has some tradition in the organization of international events and has excellent conditions for training camps for high potential athletes.
The population of the Autonomous Region of Madeira, in general, practices physical activity, in the search for healthy lifestyles. Athletics is the main modality, either at competitive level or of mere recreation and leisure.
As far as the competition is concerned, we organize annually 110 events in the various components of the sport, ie on track, road, trail, mountain and cross-country.
Welcome, and we wish you an excellent competition with excellent performance and personal records. We hope you achieve your goals and enjoy all that Madeira has to offer: gastronomy, the richness of the sea and the involvement with nature, but above all, that return soon.
President of the Local Organising Committee
