About the race

Leaving from the village of Tesserete in the Italian speaking canton of Ticino, Switzerland, this race was designed for a fast but challenging run. The 31 km ‘skyrunning’ route begins with several steep ascents, up to Monte Bar and then to the highest point along the trail, Gazzirola, before dropping towards San Lucio and Bogno where the finish line awaits. The 54 km runners will continue on to enjoy panoramic views; following amphitheater ridges, the unfolding landscape and trail are visible before and behind.

On the second day of this event, the organizers have previously held a vertical kilometer – 4.5km D + 880 and 1,000 meters of elevation – known as the Vertical della Croce though this year the Vertical della Croce is not a part of the event.

In 2023, the organizers created the 167km trail, which they called the “M100 hyper track”. This epic 100-mile event clocked up almost 12000m of elevation gain and promised to “break your legs and destroy your will”. However, this “leg-breaking” trail will not be a part of the 2024 event.
