Skyrace Lodrino-Lavertezzo

Important information: due to the weather condition the races will be held on Sunday, May 26!

The popular mountain and cross-country Skyrace Lodrino-Lavertezzo competition is now in its 14th edition.

Departure from Lodrino (primary schools) at an altitude of 262 m and arrival in Lavertezzo piazza 536 m, 21 km that develop in 2190 m of ascent and 1860 m of descent. The first kilometre takes place on an asphalted road through the old village centre of Lodrino, and then takes the steep path through the Lègri mountains at 582 m.

The trail continues extremely steep for 5 km until it reaches the Alpe Alva. Alpe Alva at an altitude of 1570m will be the finishing point for the Vertical race. At 1570 m, continuous ups and downs follow for 3 km that lead to the Alpe Negheisc area at 1900 m, after which the last demanding ramp is climbed to reach the Forcarella di Lodrino at 2200 m, the summit of the traverse.

The descent first runs along a very steep grassy path, then gradually becomes gentler in the direction of Alpe Fumegna at 1810 m, then takes the Pincascia valley, which after the first km still steep descends gently to Lavertezzo via Pincascia-Forno-Cugnera. Intermediate control points on Monte Alva and at Forcarella di Lodrino.

The race starts at the Lodrino schools at 8 a.m.

The novelty of this 14th edition is the involvement of children with a 'Skyrace Kids' on the day before the race, Friday 24 May at 6pm.

The route winds through the village of Lodrino (about 800m) with the finish line in the square. The aim is to involve school children from Riviera and to make the village population experience the Skyrace as well. With the support of the Lodrino-Prosito Ski Club, a buvette will be set up in the square in Lodrino, with an aperitif with music and the possibility of dining on site.
