The Corrida Internacional de São Silvestre

The Corrida Internacional de São Silvestre or the Saint Silvester Road Race, takes place on the oldest and one of the most significant streets of Sao Paulo. The race occurs on December 31, the day Saint Silvester (a Catholic saint) died. While the race is shorter than a marathon (9.3 miles), heat and various natural obstacles make the race difficult for competitors.
