Cogne, a sleepy village at the end of a valley in North West Italy, attracts a surprising number of very fit people. Famous for its nordic ski area and extensive ice climbing on frozen waterfalls, this small village in the Gran Paradiso National Park is well-known to fans of winter sports. Each March, trail running features too, in an evening race involving a 3km trail run followed by a 4km skate ski, which can be done solo or in a relay team. There is also a shorter version of 1km run and 2km skate.
Dinner, prizes for everyone and a party at La Mine restaurant are definitely worth hanging on for. The DJ’s start up about 22:00 if you fancy a bit more cardio!
