For many, it may be an almost impossible distance to cover, without taking into account the more than 1,800 metres of altitude difference. Others give up even before they think about it and hide behind their insecurities. All wrong. This race was created precisely to show even those with low self-confidence that everyone can do it; all it takes is a minimum of training. On this route, many sports and mountain enthusiasts have tasted a bite of the purest trail running and enjoyed it so much that they have then embarked on longer distances.
Of course, this Skyrace is also a juicy morsel for those with high goals, and to be able to run it in around three hours can be considered an outstanding performance. Many top athletes have appreciated the indomitable nature of this route and the technicality of the trails, especially the very intense uphill sections leading up to the summit of Monte Bar, from where one dashes down into the valley towards the finish. If you only have road or short distance experience, this race is for you. Tackle it with confidence and it will be your stepping stone to mountain running.
Take the first step with confidence. It is not necessary to see the whole staircase, just go up the first step.
