A classic Skyrace: hard, technical and intense with 27km and 2650m of vertical climb.
After a burning uphill with extremely steep sections equipped with fixed chains and ropes, the summit of the Northern Grigna (2410m) is reached after about 15 km and with 2300m of vertical gain in the legs. The energy of the spectators at the top combined with the incredible landscapes and breathtaking views from Lake Como to the Alps make the climb worth it. After the summit, a fast descent- perhaps the fastest of the series – runners back to the welcoming finish line in Pasturo.
