In 2015, the seventh edition of the Portonave Rustic Race was held. Open to the public, the event registered 800 athletes in two categories (5k and 10k). Already a traditional event in the Navegantes calendar, part of the athletes’ registration includes donations of powdered milk to institutions that assist the city’s children. In 2015, 680 cans of powdered milk were donated.
Portonave also maintains a track and field team formed by employees. In 2015, the group had around 50 athletes, who received special training administered by physical education professionals and sponsorships for participating in competitions. Throughout the year, Portonave’s athletes participated in races like the Saint Silvester Race in São Paulo, Volta à Ilha in Florianópolis and Volta de São Francisco do Sul in northern Santa Catarina.
