A new race in an amazing place has been added to the XTERRA Italy tour. XTERRA Finale Ligure takes place October 16-18 on the Ligurian Sea, widely regarded as an outdoor paradise for adventurous athletes and their families.
“Built by the Romans two thousand years ago, the trails of finale represent a unique opportunity to race in a location of historical value,” said program director Ugo Federico Albarello.
The events are taking place in the beautiful Varigotti, an enchanting Fisherman’s village built right on the shores of Finale. “The hills of Le Manie, filled with lush Mediterranean vegetation, merge mildly into the cleanest sea of Northern Italy.”
Albarello has organized a full weekend of events starting with an opening party and night run on Friday, Oct. 16. Saturday there are full and half-distance XTERRA Triathlons and a party at night, then on Sunday he’ll host swim, mountain bike, and trail running races .
“In October the sport season in Europe is almost over so that is why we have prepared a grand finale with three days of sport, nice food and music in one of the best locations in the world for outdoor sports at Finale Ligure,” said Albarello.
