Portugal Day Races

Each year runners/walkers, Portuguese or not, gather and race in the historic Ironbound section, celebrating Portuguese-American culture.

The Portugal Day Races take place every year around the first or second Sunday of June (usually the closest one to the Portuguese national holiday). The race was founded in 1979 by the late Manuel Parente and had been directed for many years by the late Domingos Cravo. The Lar Dos Leos (Den of Lions) has organized the event since its beginning. In honor of their service to the Portuguese community, we have named the Cravo Kid Dash and the Parente Mile in the honor. We have also named the 5k in honor of a longtime supporter and friend of ours, the late Jack Casimiro. Had it not been for their contributions and generosity, these races would not be possible.

What you need to know about Running Events

Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.

If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.

Find local Running races

Today, with international organisations, local clubs and national events to choose from, there are thousands of races to discover, and we want to help you find them quickly and easily. Below you’ll find selections by running type, running location and some exceptional events to take part in.
