The Sila 3 Vette is a challenge with oneself in contact with nature, before than a race. The longer distances (250k-140k-80k) require specific preparation, necessary to run alone at night, on the snow, in the dark and with temperatures that drop below 10 degrees. Added to this is the fact that the tracks are not marked so you must know how to use GPS navigation systems and you need to study the maps of the territory, as well as carrying a backpack with different mandatory material indicated in the competition regulations.
The competitive race are four, 250k, new for the 2022 edition, 140k, 80k and 40k, and give access to the prizes offered by the International Partners, Rovaniemi150 Idita Sport Alaska and Ultra Mirage in Tunisia. The winners of each category, run, ski or fat bike, and competition will receive special invitation and elected testimonial of the Sila 3 Vette to one of the partner races. The 2nd and 3rd place will also be awarded with dedicated prizes offered by the organization.
The Sila is also an ideal area for hikers open throughout the winter, with interesting itineraries that can be traveled on with snowshoes. One within everyone’s reach is that of Lake Ariamacina, a naturalistic oasis about ten km from Camigliatello Silano. The periplus of the reservoir measures about seven km and does not present any particular differences in height.
