Description

This mountain run takes place in the Italian-speaking Swiss Canton of Ticino. It starts in the village of Lodrino, firstly through the village on a paved road, then onto trails that climb steeply for nearly 2,000 meters to the panoramic viewpoint at Forcarella di Lodrino. From this high point it’s all downhill– first steeply, then more gently– along a grassy path to the finish at the Piazza di Lavertezzo. An optional shorter race, the Lodrino-Alpe Alve Mountain Race, is held the same day. The run finishes at the high vista, and runners can then enjoy the walk down to Lavertezzo.
