Description

In the extreme north-west of Italy, on the border between Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta, between one and 10,000 years ago the great Balteo glacier descended from the Alps. During its powerful descent, it transported huge quantities of earthy and rocky materials, transforming the landscape and giving rise to the Eporedian plain and the most beautiful and preserved morainic amphitheater in the world.

The Morenic Trail is the ultra trail on the foot print of the ancient Balteo Glacier, 119 km along the ridges of the Morteic Balteo Amphitheater. A sporting experience but above all a long journey in nature and through characteristic villages of the morainic Baltee hills. Expect an even more intense experience thanks to the welcoming nature of the morainic people of the region who will provide you with a feast of traditional refreshments.

If this all sounds like too much, then the relay option is available to run as part of a team, or maybe try the Valchiusella Night Race of 18.5 km!
