Trail running is a specialty running race that takes place on trails, in nature, with limited stretches of asphalt that, at most, and in any case should not exceed 20% of the route. The distances vary from medium to long to ultra trail.
It was not easy to find a route that contains all the necessary features that a trail must have. After having examined different paths in lower Valtellina, the most suitable for historical beauty, landscape and path is definitely the the “Wanderer’s Trail."
The "Wanderer’s Trail" is a unique opportunity to discover the natural and artistic beauty of locations on the northern lakeshore in Lecco province.
It will enhance an ancient way of passage from Milan to Switzerland that, next to the lakeside route, shows the role of the Como area and Valtellina in commercial trade. The peculiarity of the trail, which climbs from Abbey Lariana halfway up the mountainside in and out of the towns while tracing its history before arriving in Piantedo, gives participants the opportunity to admire the places touched by the route, to enjoy the wonderful visual impact.
We believe that many know this path, but few have actually run it, maybe in part but not all.
This is certainly an unmissable opportunity for everyone: the spirit of the Trail is not competitive, although some will be unable to renounce this.
Initially our plan included a long and a short distance run: the first, an integral route between the two aforementioned towns, the second between Bellano and Piantedo. After some reflection, we have decided for this first edition to limit the event to the circuit, "Bellano - Piantedo" - about 24 km.
Obviously, to organize the event on a shorter route involves less need for people, means and resources. Just the "resources", especially the "economic ones", have limited our enthusiasm - even with a shortened route we will need a lot. This does not mean that we intend to give up. This edition will be a way to check the organizational machine so that the next year we will surely overcome any difficulties from the beginning.
Domenica si corre una terza edizione… per tutti

“I went back to the Trail del Viandante with the ambition to try to repeat myself, but mainly because it is a race that I liked. 49km with 2700m of altitude, ups and downs between ancient paths, villages and villas overlooking the lake of rare beauty captivated me. I love this race and I love the passion with which it is organized”

“The course is very muscular, with many ups and downs, there is beginning to climb 10 km long enough with a descent as technical, but really fun, there was a moment of boredom, many variations on the people path and many refreshments. The path is well marked, a Trail of Viandante really super I must say! “
