The last race in the Scenic Trail repertoire is the infamous K4 also known as Vertical della Croce. The decision to start this race on Sunday was born from a challenge; to be able to finish one of the races that finish by Saturday evening (the K54, the K27, the K18 and some “very fast” K119, and then directly chain this short but intense climb that leaves no respite. If you are motivated and determined , sign up and get your fill of this succulent dessert which, we guarantee, will satisfy your hunger for adrenaline.

The start takes place on the road and this to allow the runners to distance themselves and establish a first skimming. The slope gets steeper as you go up, defining even better the ranking that will be outlined. After the Capanna Ginestra, an intermediate refreshment point, you will be on the last kilometer of the climb with over 350 meters in altitude to complete. Although there are no objective dangers, the top part of the route has been equipped with handrails to ensure maximum safety for everyone. There will also be our most experienced volunteers who will assist you during the latest endeavors.

You can have results or you can have your apology. You can't have both.
