SciaccheTrail is an amazing 50-km race among the vineyards, sanctuaries and villages of the Cinque Terre, Liguria. About 300 athletes are expected for the 5th edition that will take place on 6 April 2019.
The event unites two passions: one for the precious passito wine (sciacchetrà) produced on the sloping terraces, and the other for trail running, a discipline that provides the opportunity to experience the characteristics of the local territory.
Sports & Community, far beyond the Cinque Terre of postcards
Running along the ancient mule tracks leads the racers back to the origins of the various territories, through their histories and economies. Rediscovering all of this through hard effort is a truly rewarding experience.
Trail running has been promoted by territories and entities like the Cinque Terre National Park, because they have understood that this discipline brings tourism sensitive to environmental issues and sustainability.
Another important aspect is that of de-seasonalization of tourism flows, as running can be enjoyed 365 days a year along the Cinque Terre and the Gulf of Poets, allowing racers to see the authentic local lifestyle in off peak periods.
Far from the hustle and bustle of the summer crowds, registered runners will be able to live the peace and tranquility of the Cinque Terre with other activities as well, such as yoga, mountain bike and rowing.
