A route suitable for those who have already run in the mountains and have a basic level of training. Challenging climb, easy descent.
The race starts along the stream towards the imposing amphitheater that encircles the Val Saisera with the peaks of the Montasio Group, part of the Julian Alps. From here, you will occasionally encounter peculiar sculptures that highlight distinctive elements of this forest. These are works of art made with resonance spruces, wood used for the manufacture of excellent quality musical instruments.
The Alpe Adria Ultra Trail, a significant event in the Julian Alps, takes place in conjunction with the Resonance Festival: discover all the activities.
Continuing along the trail, you arrive at a theme park dedicated to World War I: caves, slits, and strategic positions induce reflection on what our ancestors must have experienced in these woods of the Julian Alps a century ago. Thanks to detailed illustrative panels, you can learn about the historical events that took place among these trees, stories of life so intense that they are hard to imagine.
From here, you climb along an almost vertical trail, discovering unique views of the Val Saisera among streams, beech forests, fir trees, and rhododendron and mugo pine bushes. A very demanding climb, almost vertical, with no exposed stretches but with points to pay attention to.
Once the climb is over, you reach the Pellarini Refuge, where a refreshment point and a view that will erase all fatigue await you: Mount Naois, Val Saisera, Mount Lussari, and Cima del Cacciatore. From here you can see the entire race course, the descent of the 29 and 55 competitors from the Forcella Nabois, and the passage of the 27 and 39 on the Cima del Cacciatore.
You then continue on a trail and forest road to the Sella Prasnig, from here it’s 8 km of relaxation descending on a forest road to the finish line.
