This run takes place over Easter on the roads of the Blenio valley: now in its 24th year, it has become a real Spring classic. A popular competition with a unique atmosphere, it regularly attracts many top sportsmen alongside the multitude of enthusiasts, from a huge variety of different countries: some one-thousand athletes compete every year over the fascinating course with its truly stunning backdrop.
Spectators have chance to see close-up athletes of real renown, not least the elegance of the African 'gazelles'. The runners from the African plateaus, which year after year parade on the Blenio roads, are often at the start of great careers. No surprise then that the Africans remain the true masters of the competition.
