Description

This mountain run starts in the village of Lodrino, running through the village on a paved road. Then, it’s 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.
