Gargano Running & Trekking Week
21-22 April. The most important trail running, trekking and nordic walking event in Italy.
On 21-22 April 2018, Gargano hosts Gargano Running & Trekking Week, the most important trail running, trekking and nordic walking event in Italy.
Lovers of road, trail and sky running, ultra-distances, trekking, fit and nordic walking come to Apulia from all over Italy and also from abroad.
The races go through three different landscapes: coast, hills and forest. From ground level up to over one thousand meters above sea level in the Umbra Forest, through ancient sheep tracks and single tracks set up ad hoc for the runners that will take part in the competition.
Three trail courses: 80 km, 34 km and 14 km, an overnight mini-vertical race, a long trekking raid, divided in three stages of 30k each, crossing the whole Gargano; and finally, the amazing Gastro Run, through local olive oil mills and Fit Walking classes in town. About 1200 took part in this event in 2015.
The event is organized by the Municipality of Mattinata (in the Province of Foggia) and the Gargano National Park.Go to the website Gargano Running & Trekking Week
