This year’s Sciacchetrail takes place from 23rd to 25th March and was selected among the best projects about innovation and sustainability of Italian tourist destinations.
Schiacchetrail is a running race which takes place every year in the Cinque Terre paths, joining love for outodoor sports, nature and for the unique Ligurian territory, a way to enjoy wellness in a unspoilt environment.
The name “sciacchetrail" comes from the local sweet wine name Sciacchetra, and trail running, so defined on the race’s website:
Trail running means, among others things, running for miles and miles in solitude, which stimulates inner growth. A new dimension is added to running with the infinite variables of nature.
Running along the ancient mule tracks leads us back to the origins of the various territories, through their histories and economies. Rediscovering all of this through hard effort also has a moral value that brings us back to reality, outside of financial bubbles and technologies in which we are losing ourselves.
Sciacchetrail in 2016 entered the circuit of the International Trail Running Association and obtained points valid for the participation in the principal trail running races of Europe. Runners from all over the world come to the Cinque Terre to run in the beautiful setting of the Cinque Terre.
After last year’s edition success, Sciacchetrail becomes even bigger this year, with the Sciacchetrail Outdoor & Family Village, new sports and activities all along the weekend and events connected to the worlds of sport, wine, food, and art. Among the planned activities: climb station, skateboard, stretching, pole dance, rowing, slack line, mountain bike, table boulder, art laboratories and the competition ArTrail, dedicated to the enhancement of the territory and its identity.
The race will take place on Saturday 24th of March from the town of Monterosso.
