Sciacchetrail 2015 – 28th and 29th of March in Monterosso
17 January 2015
Sciacchetrail is the first Cinque Terre's trail that unites all the villages of the Cinque Terre National Park starting from Monterosso on 28 and 29 March 2015.
The name of the event combines the two main passions of the territory: the famous sweet wine DOC Sciacchetrà and the trail running. The meeting of two challenges: one to create a wine of kings in the vertical gardens made of dry stone walls and one to conquer the mountain top overlooking the sea.
The race track is a loop that starts and ends in Monterosso al Mare, joining the five villages and their sanctuaries through 47 km of dirty roads with more than 3000 meters of elevation gain, and the organizers, Cinque Terre National Park and STL, have chosen to provide only 200 pectoral not to create an excessive pressure.
Sciacchetrail is the event chosen by the Park to inaugurate the new road signs that starting from March 2015 will feature the entire network of paths of the Cinque Terre.
The race will take place on 29th of March starting and finishing in Monterosso but already on 28th of March will open the great party in the village with the Festival of Sciacchetrà, tastings,music, meetings and more.
