The 1st edition of the Volvo Trucks Impact Race saw great enthusiasm and determination from all participants, the majority of them drivers, fleet operators or with links to road haulage companies, all with a thirst for adventure and team spirit and ready to discover their physical and mental limits while having fun alongside other participants, friends and family members who didn’t want to miss out.

The aim of the event was not just to put their strength, willpower, resistance and team spirit to the test in the unique natural setting, full of adrenaline, fun and joy, but also to get across the messages that Volvo Trucks always seeks to bring to its drivers by encouraging them to adopt good daily habits, such as a healthy, balanced diet or doing exercises such as stretches in order to reduce the discomfort caused by staying in the same position for many hours and to ensure greater road safety.

The satisfaction of finishing the event and overcoming the obstacles was clear at the finishing line and all those who came along and enjoyed the race were sure to wish to relive this adventure in the future, one which stood out for its setting on the banks of the Mondego river and the amazing surrounding green landscapes.
