Wild nature, conformation of the land, Alpine surroundings and fresh mountain air gather a great number of enthusiasts as well as the greatest international trail runners.
To take part in a trail running competition you need the pride to take on a challenge with yourself, as well as the desire to get better. (Marco Olmo, italian trail running marathoner)
