Incoming selection announcements for the Grigne Sky Marathon

With the closing of pre-registrations for the Grigne Sky Marathon we would like to thank all participants for their great interest and enthusiasm for our race.

We would like to inform the athletes that by Wednesday, May 10, they will receive an email replying to their pre-registration, in which it will be indicated if they have passed the selection and therefore can proceed to the official registration for the race (by May 31).

Weather evolution and Race procedures

This morning, as planned, we supplied all the hut refreshment areas at high altitude with the necessary supplies.

However, the uncertain weather conditions oblige us to monitor, together with the Mountain Rescue Service and the Route Director (Alpine Guide), the evolution of the weather conditions from the radar centres with the objective of informing by the evening of Saturday 18 September the decision on the race track that will be used.

An alternative route has already been prepared to guarantee the safe running of the event even in bad weather conditions.

Skymarathon delle Grigne, the return of the legend

Which athlete has not heard at least once about the “(great) Trofeo Scaccabarozzi"?

Those who remember describe it as something massive, a glorious memory of the very first races of Skyrunning that rewards tenacity as well as strength, the head as well as the legs.

It was September 30th 2001, Fabio Meraldi was the first to cross the finish line of the first edition of the Sentiero delle Grigne “Trofeo Scaccabarozzi”.
For the next 11 years the path has seen the birth of great athletes of the international scene.

8 years have passed since that goodbye, which would have meant for many the farewell from their first great love. Luckily that chapter was not the last of the great book titled to the Valsassina Skyrunning. Like in the best scripts of romantic comedies, the unexpected twist is guaranteed and the ending is expected full of good feelings.
