29km of real skyrunning with a 2,500 meter vertical climb with the start/finish lines in the beautiful location of Lungolago Marconi in Limone sul Garda are the distinctive elements of this race.
After a 2km stretch passing through the streets of Limone, the course reaches Reamòl. This marks the beginning of the breath-taking, rugged ascent that heads to Punto Larici, proceeds to Passo Rocchetta and Cima Mughera. From here there’s a descent on the path “zete de Rans”. Taking the Braséla path up and down you reach Doss dei Ruer from where you will do the second part of the Vertical.
