European Mountain Running Championships

A unique race in the worldwide panorama of mountain running. Friday, july 1st Opening Ceremony at 6 pm

The race track is unique. There are more reasons: first of all the race runs 100m on the sea level; then the race is hosted almost completely in the old town center and the athletes would run through an X century’s Castle; finally the race is characterized by breath-taking views and various landscapes.

Arco is a city founded on tourism and wellness since the House of Hapsburg’s. The race starts in the old town center of Arco. Then it climbs the rock that protects Arco from the north and goes up to the Castle and “Torre Renghera” that overlook the Alto Garda zone. “Torre Renghera” is almost 200m over the race start on the Castle’s hill top. The race would not finish at this point. The athletes have to climb down on a hard path. Then the race would rise again up to “Monte Colodri”, passing through the olive groves and a wonderful mountain landscape. Arco merges with the surrounding mountains which embrace and protect Arco. That’s what people think climbing down “Monte Colodri” up to the finish line. In few moments the landscapes change. From the wood to the streets, from the pines to the olive groves.
In this context, 2016 the Castle Mountain Running will be the European Mountain Running Championships which will lead to Arco the strongest European athletes of mountain running, ready to face a race both spectacular and exciting.
