Hi,
It’s on! Are you ready? Read this latest newsletter carefully for useful information on your race.
From now on check our website www.ultratrail.it and social media regularly to get updates on all the latest news.
Remember that giving your race bib to another runner or switching from one race to another is NOT allowed.

TRAIL PATHS CONFIRMED!

The Vaia storm last October destroyed most of the race trails and then the snow that fell in April and May created problems. But thanks to the wonderful volunteers and the great work of local institutions, we can confirm that all the races will be run on the original paths. The high temperatures of the last few days have melted the snow with a consequent rise in water levels in streams. Therefore, keep in mind that there will be fords where runners will have to put their feet in water!
