WHAT: XTERRA Italy Lake Garda Trail Run
WHEN: Cancelled - Join us next year May 22, 2021
WHERE: Lake Garda
Join us for a weekend of sport and entertainment embracing nature on Lake Garda’s Brescian side. XTERRA Lake Garda is the first stage of the prestigious off-road worldwide triathlon circuit in the Italian peninsula. In addition to a challenging competition, Lake Garda creates an outdoor sport venue embracing the race. The village lowers the volume and frenzy of our chaotic world and helps reestablish our connection with earth.
After last year’s success, besides two Cross Triathlon competitions, in Full and Sprint distance, Open Water, Trail Run, and Duathlon Kid will be proposed again.
Trail running competition on the same path faced by the athletes during Sunday competition. The race is composed of 11 km developed between the lakeside and Cartiere’s Valley. The trail offers suggestive landscapes in an immaculate environment to arrive in the cartiere’s Valley; from where the lakeside begins (you may need to wet your feet); the last course starts here: the finale will be quick: who known how to store his energies, will succeed in reach the finish line.
This is a great chance to test the trail for the ones who will be running on Sunday. The finish line is in the XTERRA Village Arena under the stage of the EX CAMPO IPPICO, where the audience will cheer every constant in order to party together with the award ceremony and the musical evening show tasting the food area.
It starts at 19:00
The real challenge is to manage to get out of the Valley before the dark catches you... Good Luck
