The perfect taste of a destination that knows how to offer deep emotions, between wild places and ancestral elements.
It presents itself as an outdoor and competition proposal within the reach of all trail running enthusiasts, even at an amateur level.
It is a race of about 18 km with about 900 m D+
The route starts and ends from the trail village in the Marmora-Canosio junction area, from the Tourist Office.
The first part of the path winds its way through the magnificent hamlets of Marmora, at times crossing the asphalted road.
You gain altitude quickly, until you reach the upper hamlet of Marmora. Here you continue on the forest road and then on the path to the foot of Monte Buch, then continue on the path on the ridge to the panoramic Costa Chiggia and Colle Intersile.
Go down again on the forest road on a fully runable path, with a turn to the left you go up towards Borgata Sagna Rotonda, then straight downhill on single track up to Borgata Arata, Garino and Finello.
The last stretch on the path in the woods easily takes you back to Borgata Vernetti and then to the Marmora-Canosio junction in the finish area.
After the race, at the trail village, good food, good Occitan music and local drinks await the runners for a well-deserved relaxation.
