On December 30th, we will run to the rhythm of the capital!

The 16th edition of Lidl São Silvestre de Lisboa, organized by HMS Sports in partnership with Lisbon City Council and EGEAC, takes place on the night of the last Saturday of the year, at 9:30 pm, with Avenida da Liberdade being the stage for starting and consecration of all participants in the 10 km race.

Clube Pelicas São Silvestre da Pequenada, for children born between 2010 and 2018, returns to Monsanto, on December 16th.

Since 2008, this sporting initiative has brought together more than 120,000 participants.

Registration is available:

“In 2023, we will celebrate 16 editions of the first competition organized by HMS Sports and we want it to be special for those who believe in and have participated in this project. It’s 16 years of an event held in the heart of the Portuguese capital, which is already part of the city; a test enriched by the Christmas lights spread across the streets of Lisbon; a challenge that encourages the practice of sports among people from various parts of our country and also around the world”, considers Hugo Miguel Sousa, CEO of HMS Sports.

“Last year, the 15th edition of Lidl São Silvestre in Lisbon sold out registrations at the beginning of December, with a record 12,500 registered in the 10 km race and 300 children in the Clube Pelicas São Silvestre da Pequenada. In fact, it was an edition of records, as it reached a new maximum number of women registered: 38% and also the record for nationalities of those registered, with 49 nationalities represented, from the five continents. We would like to surpass these numbers in 2023”, reinforces the race director.

“For those who like challenges, Lidl São Silvestre in Lisbon is the ideal test. Avenida da Liberdade welcomes athletes who face a 10-kilometer route along the city’s main arteries; there is a lot of musical entertainment at different points along the route; the climb up Avenida da Liberdade precedes the passage through the Marquês de Pombal roundabout and the descent to the finish line at the end of the avenue; the event is monitored live on television and brings together, in the same space, elite and anonymous athletes. It is a promotion of sport that reinforces the brightness and charm of our Lisbon”, adds Hugo Sousa.
