About race


The eleventh stop within our Dream Running Series is Brazil. We invite you to the Rio de Janeiro Run on September 4–5, 2021!

Rio de Janeiro literally means “January river” as according to the legend, Portuguese sailors deviated from the route, came to the territory of Brazil and thought that the Guanabara Bay was a river. Since it happened on January 1, they named the area Rio de Janeiro, ie “January River”. For a long time, Rio was the capital of the Portuguese colony, for 12 years it was the capital of Portugal itself (when the royal family was forced to emigrate to Brazil after Napoleon’s attack). But since 1960, the capital city of Brazil is Brasilia, and Rio is considered the cultural center of the country.

Rio is the capital of carnival and samba, football and delicious coffee. Feel its rhythm at the Rio de Janeiro Run on September 4–5.

Register and use your imagination! We will meet you for our virtual race at the Floriano Peixoto Square.

Remember, our dreams can take us to Rio and beyond.
