The 14.edition of the Lodrino-Lavertezzo Skyrace will start at 8.00 a.m. from the Sport Centre at 262 meter of altitude and finish at the Piazza of Lavertezzo at 536 m.

The course consist of a steep ascent in the Lodrino valley and an easier descent in the Verzasca valley. Its 21 km long with an difference in elevation of 2190 m uphill and 1860 m downhill.

After the first kilometer through the village of Lodrino the path is steep for about 5 km until reaching the Alpe di Alva (1570 m). A varied route of about 3km ups and downs lead then to the Alpe Negheisc (1880) Then again a very steep trail gets you to the panoramic stop-over - the Forcarella di Lodrino (2236 m). The descent starts with a steep, stony precipice and leads to the Alpe Corte di mezzo at 1627 m.
