Sorry, this entry is only available in Italian.
The closest airport to Buggerru, a village that will see both the start and the finish of the race on March 15, is Cagliari-Elmas, about 80 kilometers away.
Buying a plane ticket a few weeks in advance allows for substantial savings.
In March the main airlines that connect Cagliari to Italy and the rest of the world are:
- Air Italy
In December and at the beginning of the year we have often been on the new paths that will characterize the 2020 edition of the Marganai Trail.
The first kilometers after the start and the last ones before the arrival are characterized by the sea, the real novelty of this edition. The sea in any weather reveals its beauty and charm.But as we move away from the sea and the influence of the saltiness, the low vegetation is replaced by the forest. Holm oaks, oak and strawberry trees embrace the paths.
This gallery is used to get an idea of what awaits you in Buggerru and in this corner of Sardinia.
Here are the paths of the Marganai Trail 2020 between news and confirmations.
To begin with, even if you find them on the site menu, these are the links to the related pages:
- Trail del Marganai 56 Km 2700m D+
- Trail del Marganai 34 Km 1700m D+
- Trail del Marganai 22 Km 950m D+
All the routes will start from the town of Buggerru and without delay along the coast they will proceed inland.
The 22 km has a completely new path.
The 34 km is almost completely new, because it shares with the tracks of the past editions the segment from the Temple of Antas to the caves of Su Mannau which however will be done in the opposite direction to what was done previously.
For those who have already covered it, in this edition it will be downhill!
The 56 km track is the one that keeps the most distance with what was done in past years.
From the Temple of Antas we will continue along the Roman Cave path and head towards Malacalzetta.
Once left the ruins of the buildings of the old mines, we face the climb that instead of going towards the descent to the mines of Reigraxius will stretch up to the Punta Campu Spina, the highest point of all the routes.
From here, after the big descent into the woods, we will head towards Arenas and, kilometer after kilometer, up to the vaults of the Su Mannau Caves.
Here he will rejoin us on the new section of the 34 until we arrive.
The last kilometers of all three races will offer a spectacular view of the coasts of Buggerru and Fluminimaggiore.
Soon we will begin to publish photos of new features.
For registration, just a little more patience. Soon you start!
For the Trail del Marganai 2019 the fever rises. We start for the first time from the Nuraghe s’omu e s’orcu, making this event unique again this year.
All the voluntary associations of Domusnovas and of the whole territory are in the field, as well as the presence of civil protection and ambulances for the protection of the entire route. The presence of Alpine Rescue also confirmed.
The races are 3 for the agonists: 55, 30 and 20 km, to which is added the 10 km non-competitive where the participants will be able to share part of the same routes of competitive competitions.
Through the Consorzio natura Viva Sardegna, you can book the Trekking excursion to the numbers of the Trail or at the info point service of the Consortium, Emanuela 3480553369.
The 2019 edition promises to be very interesting: the Eana Majer athlete will run along the paths of the Marganai, already ranked first in 2018 at the “Bieg 7 Dolin” of 100 km and at the “Ehunmilak Ultra-Trail” of 55; for the Polish Bartosz Gorczyca is a return along the Sardinian paths, in fact it counts the first place 2018 at the Ultratrack Supramonte Seaside 2018 that runs along the paths of the Supramonte of Baunei, as well as winning the 83 km “Chudy Wawrzyniec 2018”.
Confirmed the presence of the Danish Kjaer Harriet, winner of the 52 km Trail of the Marganai edition
On the Italian front we find Saverio Monti team Valtellina, winner last year of Valmalenco Ultradistance Trail 2018 of 74 km with a respectable time, in addition to excellent placings in others races.
There will be no lack of Sardinian surprises, as well as Filippo Salaris there will be several athletes and athletes, among them such as Stefano Gervasoni, Teodoro Mura, Dario Tuveri and our tireless Marina Scibilia.
This year, as an absolute novelty in this kind of races in Sardinia, the zero edition of the relay race along the 55 km route.
It will be divided into two stages:
– the first from the suggestive nuraghe “S’Omu e S’Orcu” up to the spectacular Temple of Antas;
– the second continues inside the mining village of Malacalzetta, until it reaches the mill.
5 teams maximum, the first team sees as protagonist Lino Cianciotto and Luigia Marini, a novelty in the novelty an athlete amputated the first and able-bodied the second, confirming that everyone can to run.
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!
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!
