SciaccheTrail, which takes place on Sunday, March 20th, is a 47km ultra trail that winds along the wine paths of the Cinque Terre, a territory rich in charm and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The enchanting trail is a loop that starts from Monterosso and heads up to the “High Trail” of the Cinque Terre, before descending back again toward the sea, passing through all of the villages of the magical quintet: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and back to Monterosso. A unique race that winds through ancient paths along the vineyards surrounded by dry stone walls and the fascinating Ligurian landscape famous all over the world.

Organized by Cinque Terre Trekking, Cinque Terre National Park, Pro Loco Monterosso, Consortium Cinque Terre, and Consortium InManarola, SciaccheTrail has what it takes to carve out an honorary place on the calendar of best Italian and International ultra trail races. The course can be covered in 5-10 hours by experienced runners, but it can also be divided into stages, as the course is permanently marked.
