The original Garda Trentino Trail, the first trail running competition organized in Garda Trentino, was specifically designed to highlight the area's rich landscape.
The Garda Trentino Trail route changes from year to year: in odd years it has a counterclockwise sense of travel. The resulting track has a very varied ground, with many dirty roads alternating with single track sections. Generally the slopes are modest but there are also some steep stretches.
At the highest point of the route (Bocca Dromaé, m. 1685) you run along a path that cuts the summit of the Ledroi Alps at a high altitude. In this section there is a point that needs to be addressed carefully, especially if there are still areas covered by snow.
The length of the descents and climbs, compared to the editions of even years, is divided in shorter sections. The last 15km of the route are overlooking Lake Garda with continuous breathtaking views and are almost completely downhill, so that the 1200m of negative gradient is very simple and easy to run.
The Garda Trentino Trail is organized by the Garda Trentino Trail association. For information on dates and registration: www.gardatrentinotrail.it
