Sciacchetrail 2019: running, nature and Sciacchetrà wine
On April 6th 2019 the Cinque Terre will host a new edition of the Sciacchetrail. This trail running race is a perfect mix of two great passions of our territory: Sciacchetrà wine and trail running.
The route crosses hiking path, vineyards, vertical trails and villages, always in front of an amazing sea view.
The race is always at the end of winter, when the light is perfect and the weather not too warm. The 47 km trail is not for everybody, but there are always around 300 runners from almost 20 countries! Looking at them passing by in seconds on those narrow steep paths is always impressive!
This race itinerary is a loop that starts in Manarola and ends in Monterosso, joining the five villages and their shrines. As said before, it’s 47 km of dirt trails, with 2,600 meters of elevation gain. Again, not for everybody…
It always starts at 7.30 a.m. and last up to 10 hours. Last edition winner did it in 5h30 though…
