Global Laser-Run City Tour 2018: Alenquer (POR) builds on momentum

Laser Run

Portugal’s committed approach to the Global Laser-Run City Tour continued on July 1 with the second of four events in 2018 taking place in Alenquer.

The event in Alenquer, 60km north of the capital Lisbon, drew competitors from 12 clubs with more than half of participants (121) competing in the youth categories from Under-11 to Under-17.

Racing took place at the Urban Park of Romeira and sparked the interest of the local population who had the chance to witness Laser-Run for the first time.

Portugal’s first Global LRCT in 2018 took place in Abrantes in June and there are additional events scheduled for Braga (July 15) and Amadora (September 23), enabling the country to build on the momentum of hosting the UIPM Laser-Run World Championships in Lisbon in 2016.

The UIPM Global Laser-Run City Tour was created in 2017 to deliver an exciting, dynamic and fun competition to participants of all ages and offer them an entry point to UIPM Sports.

The Global LRCT took place in parks, stadiums and iconic urban venues in 60 cities around the world in 2017, with more than 15,000 participants. There are about 100 events scheduled in 2018.
