Monte Pisano Trail, not only a Trail race

Share the post!

In March, a special Trail Running Race takes place on Monte Pisano: it winds along paths surrounded by unspoiled nature and historical evidences that makes the Monte Pisano Trail race really amazing.

The setting of the race is Calci, a small rural village in the heart of ‘Valgraziosa’ (‘Gracious Valley’) nestled in the Monte Pisano hills. From there the routes touch many of the historic places of the area: the Chartehouse, the ruins of the Verruca Fortress and those of Mirteto Monastry and Nicosia Convent.

We will also meet some Romanesque churches and the monumental Medici aqueduct used for supplying water to Pisa back in the XVI century. Climbing the main peaks like the Verruca, the Serra and the Faeta a breathtaking view to the archipelago of the Tyrrhenian Sea will display in front of us.

When we first met Sergio, Simone, Francesco 3 years ago it was clear that the main reason for creating the event has been their love for the Monte Pisano nature and history and, in addition to that, their sport association AD1063, who organizes the Trail since then, is very well experienced from a technical point of view.

Monte Pisano Trail, March 18th 2018

Three different itineraries: Long Trail 45,600 Km  -D+  2712 mt / Medium Trail 29 Km – D+  1350 mt /Short Trail  17,800 Km- D+  1004 mt, considered perfect as competition field from experienced runners and with a mild climate for the time of the year.

That’s what makes Monte Pisano Trail a good opportunity for training before the summer. Moreover, the Trail Ethics, guidelines for Trail Runners adopted by AD 1063, rise awareness on the importance of preserving nature and environment.
