A few kilometres down the valley from Aosta, in the north west of Italy, the 1st edition of the Vertical Saint-Marcel “Prosciuttiamo a 1000” takes place in 2019. This is a one-way uphill race of 1268m elevation over 7km. The route passes through the villages and hamlets of Saint-Marcel before a spectacular arrival at the ancient mining site of Servette at 1815m.
The race is part of the food and wine festival of ‘Prosciuttiamo’, now in its fifth year. Following the race lunch and award ceremony, there is a party until late at night if you still have energy to dance!
The race is limited to 250 runners. A decent goodie bag and prizes are on offer.
