Valmalenco UltraDistance Trail
17 July 2020 @ 23:00 - 18 July 2020 @ 23:00
La VUT è una gara unica nel suo genere, 90 km a fil di cielo, in gran parte sopra i 2000 metri di quota, con 6000 metri di dislivello positivo. La prima parte della gara si svolge in notturna, con due partenze: una a Chiesa in Valmalenco, per la prova individuale, una in contemporanea a Lanzada, per la prova a staffetta 3 elementi. Le due prove si uniscono in località Vassalini, per poi proseguire in un unico serpentone di luci che sale dai 1000 metri fino ai 2600 metri del passo del Ventina. Il percorso supera per tre volte i 2700 metri e tocca 15 rifugi, attraversa paesaggi spettacolari ai piedi del massiccio del Disgrazia, dell’imponente gruppo del Bernina, e del pizzo Scalino.
The VUT is an unique race, 90 km long, mostly above the 2000 meters of altitude, with an elevation gain of 6,000 meters. The first part of the race takes place at night, with two departures at the same time: one at Chiesa in Valmalenco, for the individual race, one in Lanzada, for the 3-element relay race. The two races meet in Vassalini, then continue together with a single snake of lights that rises from 1000 meters of altitude up to 2600 meters of the pass of Ventina. The route goes three times over 2700 meters of altitude, and touches 15 shelters, through spectacular landscapes at the foot of the massif of Disgrazia, and the mounts Bernina, and Pizzo Scalino.
