Solo per i finisher

Non importa se tu hai percorso 20, 30 o 55 chilometri. Non importa se le tue gambe abbiano 900, 1400 o 2600 metri di salite e di discese.

Qualunque sia il tuo tempo, se hai tagliato il traguardo, il tuo sforzo e il tuo impegno saranno certificati dalla medaglia di finisher del Trail del Marganai 2019.

also this year trail and charity

Contributing in some way to charity is one of the objectives that the Trail del Marganai has always tried to pursue.

In previous editions we gave our contribution by supporting voluntary associations that guarantee us safety during the event, buying and donating portable DVD players with cartoons for their little guests to the pediatric CTO of Iglesias, contributing to the preparation of the inclusive play area in Domusnovas.

In line with what has been done in the past, we have decided that this year two euros for each registered will be allocated to a social project that we will shortly define.

Now it is up to all of you, with your inscriptions, to determine what the amount to be allocated to the next project will be!

ITRA Certification and UTMB Qualifying Race 2019

Also this year we obtained the certification of our routes from ITRA (International Trail Running Association), the international association that collects the organizers of Trail Running competitions.

It is a necessary step for two reasons: the first because it guarantees the quality of the tracks that are submitted and their qualification; athletes who need to register for competitions that require previous participation in qualifying competitions may use ours, provided they have arrived and have been included in the ranking among the finishers.

The second reason why ITRA certification allows you to request the organization of UTMB (Ultra Trail of Mont Blanc) to be included in their own competitions used as qualifiers.

As with previous editions, our request has been accepted so we can proudly display the “UTMB Course Qualifications 2019” stamp.

If there was any doubt, now you just have to sign up!
