Mira 2020 – Online broadcast of the Final Race (24th October)

Next Saturday, October 24, there will be the final race of MIRA OLR 2020, which is usually a big party, with a very important social component.

This year, unfortunately and due to the pandemic, it will not be possible to share that moment presently near the loft. The authorities will block the location and access for the safety of everyone.

To minimize the impact and allow everyone to live that moment and the spirit of the sport, although in a different way this year, the Portuguese Racing Pigeon Federation is preparing an online broadcast, starting at 11h00 on October 24th.
