The legendary Kima Trophy selected as one of the new Ultra Series races promises an exciting event where some of the world’s top international “ultra” specialists will compete.
The gruelling 50 km course boasts 3,800 metres of technical vertical climb – probably one of the toughest races on the international skyrunning scene.
The entry limit, for safety reasons, is capped at 100.
This extraordinary “ultra” is supported by a number of projects aimed principally at the promotion of the environment – but also sport, tourism and mountain safety: COBAT, partner of the event, promotes the collection and recycling of exhausted batteries; the Mini Kima, a race for kids and families; and the Mountain Fitness® project together with Sentieri Sicuri, have been developed to ensure everyone can enjoy their hikes in Val Masino in complete safety and with an eye on calorie consumption.
