Falchi Lecco

Falchi Lecco logo The roots of “Falchi” trace back to the end of the 1990s. In 1998, the current captain Carlo Ratti, along with Gianluca Paganoni and Marco Tavola decided to run the legendary Monza-Resegone. Almost jokingly, the three completed this exhausting race.
The “Crazy Lightning” started to take form and in the April of 2001 the “Associazione Sportiva Falchi” was officially established in Mandello del Lario. Every year, Falchi organize the mountain running “Memorial Adelfio Spreafico Trophy” on April 25th which has the finish line on top of “Piani D’Erna”. With the values of friendship and loyalty, a jokingly attitude and joy, the commitment, and strong motivation, Falchi aim to affirm as a solid reality in the sports environment in the province of Lecco (and not only).
Their goal is to keep growing and having fun among family, fans and friends.
