for RUNNERS

Track description

Traveling along these paths far and wide and having an organizational know-how in mountain competitions, we let ourselves be fascinated by the possibility of offering something new and unique of its kind. After a timed departure from the funicular station, the route follows the tracks along a very beautiful panoramic route that leads directly to the summit at 928 meters above sea level. The panoramic terraces, the warm summer sun and the festive atmosphere will complete a wonderful day of sport, friendship and joy.

Venue

The departure from Cassarate allows everyone to easily reach this unique location by public transport or private vehicles; for those staying in the area for longer, there are ample options for hotels and accommodation facilities. The race ends on top of the mountain, a renowned panoramic resort that also offers many alternative activities, where you can eat and attend the award ceremony before returning to the valley by funicular (or by foot) quickly and safely. The finish area is also easily accessible to non-runners who would like to go up to assist their loved ones or watch the arrivals and cheer on the runners.
