Scenic Trail

08 - 10 June 2018
Alto Malcantone, Bedano, Capriasca, Isone, Lugano, Mezzovico-Vira, Monte Ceneri e Taverne-Torricella, Tesserete

Probably the nicest Trail Running in Europe!

Scenic Trail is a trail running competition that involves an area of 170 square Km, touching 8 municipalities: Alto Malcantone, Bedano, Capriasca, Isone Lugano, Mezzovico-Vira, Monte Ceneri and Torricella Taverne, in Southern Switzerland. It takes place during the second weekend in June. Born in 2013 it does see the first edition on a 50Km distance and 3800m in altitude along a path that runs on the ridges of the region, offering a breathtaking view (from here the term “Scenic”). In 2015 and in 2016 Scenic Trail has been awarded as best Swiss Ultra Trail competition in Switzerland. For the fifth edition five paths of unparalleled beauty are available.

TRACKS

K11 “Walking” Track

A walk for all family along easy paths, never too steep but with a stunning view over the Lugano Lake, the Alps and the major races. A springboard to Trail Running!

K27 “Skyrunning” Track

This distance can be overcome with ease with a minimum of training. A rich pattern of striking landscapes that will take you to the summit of Gazzirola, at 2116m of altitude, before being catapulted after a nice downhill, on the finish line of Bogno. From here a shuttle-bus will take you back to Tesserete!

K54 “Trail” Track

The “classic” of Scenic Trail offers everyone, beginners and advanced, unforgettable experiences on the ridges of the region. The natural amphitheater of the Cassarate Valley will leave in your heart an indelible mark and you’ll relive every year these emotions. What are you waiting? Embark on this adventure!

K113 “Ultra” Track

The queen race of Scenic Trail is an epic journey on the most beautiful mountains in the region. The view stretches from Lake Maggiore to the Apennines, from the Alps to the Po Valley. Each step takes you deeper in a land made of many facets that you will instantly love. The lucky ones will enjoy the sunrise on the top of Gradiccioli and the sunset on Monte Boglia. Honor and glory to those who will complete this journey!
