For those who want to take part in an epic trail race in Italy and get off the beaten path. Spend a few days exploring the trails and ancient cobble-stoned mountain towns in Abruzzo – Castel Del Monte, Santo Stefano and Calascio. Then head over to the coast with us to participate in the Amalfi Coast Trail Race.
An exclusive trail circuit/series designed for groups of trail runners and trekkers. Participants run to and through some of the most beautiful and ancient towns and villages of Italy and will have an opportunity to then spend time each day exploring those villages, eating local food, and spending nights in comfortable lodging at each village. A passage through time back to a simpler and more authentic way of life among the local Pastore (shepherds) and towns people who welcome travelers cheerfully to the tavernas, pensiones, agrotourismos, restaurants and homes.
Many tourists go to Rome, Florence or Venice but this is a opportunity to see many of the timeless areas and eternal trails of Italy in a way that most never get to see or know. Legendary Trails will be scheduled before a Lost Worlds Amalfi Coast Crossing and Tuscany Crossing in Italy so that you can enjoy doing what you love: racing and exploring the country by trail. These trails and villages will be in the regions of Abruzzo, Lazio and Tuscany. Trail distances of 5k-20k

DAY 1: TUESDAY – Arrive in Rome and transport to Abruzzo – Castel Del Monte (90 minutes)
There has been very was little new construction in Castel del Monte within the past 100 years. As a result, most structures in Castel del Monte are several centuries old, and many are little changed from the Middle Ages or Renaissance. The creation of Parco Nazionale del Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga in 1993, which Castel del Monte lies entirely within, assures that the land surrounding the town will remain forever wild, thus preserving Castel del Monte in a near pristine state.
