The course was designed for those who have the desire to make a race that can give all the emotions of the Trail of Heroes, concentrate in 23 km.
In this historic place at the top of the Monte Tomatico will come after an ascent of about 10 km made of single track in the woods to then appear in the open field, covering the characteristic ridges of the massif, at this point you will already be at altitude 1575 m.
The historical jewel of the Veneto, which represents Italian resistance par excellence in the First World War.
The Grappa massif is located on the chain of the Venetian Prealps between the Venetian plain to the south and the central-alpine territories to the north. The river Brenta divides it to the west from’Asiago plateau, while to the east is the river Piave to trace its boundary and to separate it from the Cesen-Visentin group. To the north we find Lake Corlo and the Conca di Feltre. The Massif, once known as Alpe Madre, it is divided between three provinces: Vicenza West, Treviso to the south e Belluno to the northeast.
Its summit, in the Cima Grappa area, measure 1775 m s.l.m. but its territory is characterized by the presence of many other peaks: among the main Col Moschin (1.279 meters), Colle della Berretta, Monte Asolone, Monte Pertica, Prassolan, Monti Solaroli, Dry Fountain, Monte Peurna, Monte Santo, Monte Tomatico (1.595m), Meatte, Monte Palon e Monte Tomba
Mount Grappa rises close to the Venetian plain. Its climate is often influenced by extremely variable weather conditions. Precipitation is abundant throughout the year, especially in the autumn period, winter and spring.
Although the late summer season can bring sun and heat in the first phase of the race, the weather close to the peaks could reserve strong winds, rain and rapidly changing temperatures. In September the daytime temperatures generally vary from 23 ° -19 ° at night from 13 ° -8 °

Dopo aver attraversato la strada si Inizia con un breve tratto di sentiero e poi 3/4 km slightly uphill on a white road. From here the real ascent to the Tomatico begins without a moment's breath until the huge summit cross. Once at the top, the less competitive ones can rest for a moment and take a look at the Val belluna and all the Dolomites.
Dalla cima si scende velocissimi in direzione est lungo la cresta, passing through Casera Boentia, Ronchio stables, e poi dentro al bosco fino alle stalle di Paoda. Qui inizia una ripida salita per la cresta che porta all’anticima del monte Santo. When you come out on the ridge on one side we have steep lawn slopes and on the other the woods. At some point it is right to have a minimum of attention. We cross the top of Monte Santo enjoying the view towards the plain, the Piave and also the sea on fine days.
From here begins a short descent that leads to a fork and then you run a stretch in the woods. (Tree crashes caused by the Vaia storm but settled by Seren's boys! Thanks!).
Last ascent to the top of Sassuma and then downhill to the restaurant located in Forcella Alta. Dal ristoro si prosegue praticamente in piano lungo la stradina fino a congiungersi nel sentiero che scende verso Seren. Very fast descent along the path through casera del Sordo and Narcisa Alta. From here begins a white road and after a flat stretch, go down to the left on a meadow and meet a small road which soon leads to the splendid meadows above the town. A bit of asphalt, the classic tour of the cemetery and then down into the woods for the last exciting and fast km along the path that follows the stream. Cross the road, last meters of fun path until you come out a few meters before the finish.
The breastplate? We guarantee!
