The Generoso Trail is a fascinating uphill race that will take you from the city of Mendrisio to the summit of Monte Generoso, at an altitude of 1704 meters.
To reach the top of the hill, you will have to face a 10 km route with a positive elevation of 1350 meters! A vertical that will give you intense emotions.
After an initial section on asphalt in the town, the remaining three quarters of the route will be run in close contact with nature. Slowly slowly, unique views will unfold before your eyes, culminating at the summit with a spectacular 360 degree view over the snow-capped Alps and Apennines, the lakes and the Po Valley.
The race is open to all fans who have turned 15
