KM Vertical do Fanal had its debut in 2010. It was a new challenge and a complement to the few trail running races organized at that time in Madeira Island. Since then it was always organized by Clube de Montanha do Funchal.

Madeira Island Archipelago is found in the North Atlantic around 900 kms of Mainland Portugal and 600 km of the coast of Morocco. Fanal has a rich natural heritage enriched by a great concentration of tis, “Ocotea Foetens”, century old trees of big dimensions that belong to the Laurel Forest family.
