DESCRIPTION OF THE ITINERARY

This race will be valid for the assignment of the title of Italian champion of long trail running Fidal for the year 2018.

The trail starts from the Lido di Gavirate (on the lake Varese) and develops among woods of beeches, chestnut trees, tilia and maples. While climbing towards the mountains there are plenty of panoramic points: mount S.Francesco, the funicular railway, the Sacro Monte chapels, Rasa, Pian Valdes, Mount Chiusurella, Martica, San Bernardo, Mount Poncione, the Ghirla Lake, Mount Mondonico, Passo delle Pizzelle, Mount Tre Croci and Punta di Mezzo. The trail develops counter-clockwise giving back to the lake. Summing up, this is a complete trail where the runner will be able to compete while admiring some breathtaking views.

People who own a Fidal card or Runcard can participate. If you don’t own a Fidal card you can take part anyway: in fact we’ll give to you a Runcard Mountain and Trail as a gift, which will be valid for 12 months.

People who participate with a Runcard or Runcard Mountain and Trail and who don’t own a Fidal card won’t be eligible for the Fidal ranking, but will be included in the general ranking and can be rewarded as such.
