Trail running


Trailrunning AV1"Now you wouldn't believe me if I told you, but I could run like the wind blows. From that day on, if I was ever going somewhere, I was running!"
Forrest Gump


Trail running is more than a sport, it's a life philosophy. It's like going back to our origins; just think that men have always run...and mountain paths are perfect just for that!

Trail running means moving along them, enjoying the wonderful scenery of the Dolomites free of any negative thoughts; a unique mountain's way of life which will give you tremendous satisfaction in close contact with nature. Above all, it will leave an indelible memory in the minds of those who have lived it.

The Dolomites are considered an ideal destination for lovers of this lifestyle, an ideal union because of its wide range of trails which extend across the vast area of these amazing mountains.
