About the event

From the Carsic plateau swept by the Bora wind to the charming harbour of PortoPiccolo in Sistiana
Here, don’t expect to find two similar sections. There are extremely fast trails, were you will reach your maximum speed, and paths where is not always possible to run. The section in the Rosandra valley will take you trough a Dolomitic-like scenario, with steep grounds that usually are found in high mountains. Here, you will find those characteristics only at an altitude of 400 meters.
The steep and rocky ground, the red soil, the limestone gravels, will run with you near to small “foibe” (deep cracks in the terrain). The unique geological conformation of this land will offer you a wide variety of panoramas, creating a race that constantly chances its looks. Here, every sight is unique.
Starting a downhill towards Slovenia, crossing the ancient Austrian railway and heading towards the Karst plateau swept by the winds of Bora. Here, it will get a view of the Gulf of Trieste and Koper, before tackling the difficult passages of the Val Rosandra, leading, after a steep climb, a race with “sea view”.

The trail will follow the old fisherman trails that is, the original CAI 1 trail before it went under renewed. This race is a running experience along ancient trails that are a secret beauty, unknown even to many expert locals. Fiftyseven kilometers of good reasons to run S1 Trail. Kick off 2017 with a race that is the ideal approach to longer and more demanding ultra trails of the season that is about to begin. This uniqueness, of climatic conditions and of terrain can be found only in Trieste. A completely new race end, which leads to the last km on the rocky beach, 1000 meters way far from “fast and easy”, which will require all the effort: both mental and physical.

A 21 km downhill race? You are probably thinking that this is an easy and fast run. Don’t get confused by the numbers written on a piece of paper: it's not an easy one! Did you run the 2016 edition, and you think you know what you are going to face? You are far away from the truth! ;)

21 km, 400 D+ e 600 D- from the Obelisco of Opicina to Portopiccolo in Sistiana
logo_s1-half_90This race combines extremely fast sections were your legs will be able to express the maximum speed you can reach, with single track trails where is not always easy to run. The steep and rocky ground, the red soil, the limestone gravels will take you near to small “foibe” (deep cracks in the terrain) in an incredible journey on the Carso triestino.
The unique geological conformation of this land will offer you a wide variety of panoramas, creating a race that constantly changces its looks. Here, every sight is unique.
At all the refreshment stalls you will find “real food” from the local production of the Carso Triestino area.This area is characterized by very small and selected gastronomical excellences deriving from a culture and morphology of the land that cannot support mass production. As a result, the Bora Wind Run will be a unique tour also for your taste.
