Montalcino

Montalcino, the lone hill between the Val d'Orcia

(a UNESCO World Heritage Site since July 2004) and the Valle dell’Ombrone where rivers of the same name run. Montalcino provides the perfect location for trail running; large climbs and descents as well as steep trails from its highest point, 680 m.a.s.l. to its lowest at 120 m.a.s.l., through the woods, which cover about 50% of the area, vineyards, and the famous Sienese hills, marked by numerous paths, mule tracks, cartroads, and historical routes like the Francigena and the Maremmana

Even the time period is no coincidence. Striving to maintain the link with the Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino, the event will take place on the weekend prior to Benvenuto Brunello (the presentation of the latest vintage of Brunello di Montalcino released on the market that year): the second Sunday in February, guaranteeing weather conditions for real trail races!
