The Transpelmo sky race is developed around the beautiful Mount Pelmo, in the Dolomites Unesco World Heritage.
Get set on the marks with us on Sunday September 4th in Val di Zoldo!
For its 15° edition, the Mount Pelmo skyrace will start with some news. The starting and arrival points are indeed moved to Pecol, few kilometres far from the origianal starting point.
The circular path of 19.5 km starts in Pecol, at the beginning rising to a hill in a wood of fir trees. Then, it continues along a wide path on the mountains, over the wide Alpine pastures under Mount Pelmo, and in wood of mountain pines, until to reach the first refreshment point that will be equipped at Rifugio Venezia where runners can find the first break.
From here, it is begins the difficult ascent, which through a first saddle leads to a steep scree slope to the forcella and finally Val d'Arcia, the highest point of the race (2607 m).
The descent is carried out for a long scree until you join in the gravel path leading up to the third refreshment point at Passo Staulanza. Beyond a short ascent, the final stage of descent begins, through the Pian dei Buoi that will take you back to Palafavera and then to Pecol, where the arrival and final refreshment are located.
