Livigno, Italy

June 15th, 2019

Skymarathon

One of the most challenging courses in the Sky Classic category, it is highly technical with fixed chains, ridges, moraine and snow fields – a true skyrunning experience.

Livigno Skymarathon is in the Migu Run Skyrunner® World Series calendar 2019.

The distance will be approximately 34 km with 2,700 metres of climbing. The race takes place in wild surroundings on the border of Italy and Switzerland. The route contains sections on exposed mountain ridges, which will have ropes or chains for assistance as well as experienced mountain guides from the Guide Alpine and Soccorso Alpino societies. A substantial part of the route takes place at altitudes between 2,500 and 3,000 metres above sea level.

In the event of bad weather, the organisers reserve the right to amend the route in favour of a pre-determined emergency route. If this is the case, all athletes will be informed during the pre-race briefing.

K17

The route for the Livigno K17 can be seen on the ‘Routes’ page. It’s approximately 17 km with 1,000 metres of climbing. The first 8.7 km are the same as the Livigno Skymarathon course, and the K17 diverts from that route at the Ristoro Baitel de la Sascia. The K17 competitors take a trail here, which heads along Val Saliente and into Val Federia. The route alternates between gravel tracks and trails to take you to the finish line in the pedestrianized centre of Livigno. It’s mainly run off-road in unspoilt nature. There are certain exposed sections on a ridge, and these are equipped with ropes and/or chains for assistance as well as experienced mountain guides from the Guide Alpine and the Soccorso Alpino. In the event of bad weather, the organisers reserve the right to amend the route in favour of a pre-determined emergency route. If this is the case, all athletes will be informed during the pre-race briefing.
