Route

Sunday 4 August 2019 at 9:00 am at the events area in Caolorine (675 m), in the Municipality of Altopiano della Vigolana (TN).

From the countryside of Vigolo Vattaro (675 m), we start slightly uphill on asphalt for a few hundred meters up to take a path that crosses the green meadows on the slopes of Vigolana up to Malga Dos del Bue (1050 m).

Then take the SAT 445/444 path that goes up towards the Bivacco Vigolana (2030 m), passing through Acqua della Mastaze (1060 m), where the first refreshment point is set up. Pass the "Gratarola" (1469 m), the "Polsa" (1551 m) and then enter the Val Larga where you begin to meet the first stretches of equipped path that lead to the foot of the "Madonnina" then to Forcella Val Larga (2100m). Here the second restaurant and the time gate set at 2 hours and 45 minutes are placed.

At this point, when you reach the fork, the climb begins, first towards Vattaro peak (2130 m) and then towards Becco di Filadonna (2150 m), GPM of the race. After doubling the summit, take the path of the ridges that, always at a high altitude, leads to Cima Vigolana (2145 m) and through a technical and muscular single track to the Becco della Ceriola (1935 m), the last top of the race that gives magnificent views of the peaks Alto Garda, Brenta and Valle dell'Adige.

Here the path descends steeply to Sass de l'Aquila, following a panoramic traverse that leads to Malga Derocca (1636 m) where the fourth restaurant is located. Following the SAT 450 path you reach the Col della Caura where a funambolic descent begins that leads to the Verzer Crucifix (1025m). The last few kilometers are on a comfortable forest road to lead to the steep final meadow that projects the athletes directly to the finish line.
