Trail Running Races in Ticino

Hello EF runners,

Anyone know of trail running races that occur in Ticino? I've seen plenty of EF posts about trail running races in other parts of Switzerland, but there haven't been many mentions of the southern regions. Any ideas?

I'll start the list with this one: Sky Race Lodrino-Lavertezzo in June

The valmalenco-poschiavo race ends near the italian border ( not exactly near Ticino ).

Re: Trail Running Races in Ticino

Hey, thanks to both of you! Those races are pretty close to Ticino -- definitely close enough for a short weekend.

There must be a few more in Ticino... I'll continue to look/ask around, and if I find anything, links will be posted here.

It's not a trail run, but I've heard it's a nice one!

You can try datasport for events and put in Ticino as the region.

Re: Trail Running Races in Ticino

110km is a bit steep for me. I prefer the somewhat shorter trail from Aurigeno to Tegna.

Re: Trail Running Races in Ticino

I will be doing the Trail Ticino in August 2012. I just finished the Marathon des Sables in April and wanted a new challenge. Another MDS 2012 buddy is doing it with me too. He is flying out from the UK. Trail Ticino plus the Marathon des Sables gives you enough qualifying points to enter the Ultra Trail de Mont Blanc. So that may be my future challenge. If anyone else is taking part from Zurich area let me know. Currently running 100k a week and planning to steadily increase that.
