BUT Formazza: here we go! Obligatory crampons for BT and BSR2 July 2021
Only a few days left until registrations close for the 2021 edition of BUT Formazza, the Trail scheduled for 10 July in the majestic alpine scenery of Alta Val Formazza, in northern Piedmont. In fact, there is only time until 13 June to experience the famous Emotions at High Altitude that can only be experienced in Val Formazza!
Three paths for everyone
As widely confirmed, there will be three planned routes: Bettelmatt Trail, Bettelmatt Skyrace and Bettelmatt Race.
Bettelmatt Trail (BT) will return to the classic route and will then take place over a distance of 57km for over 3,000m D+- (3 ITRA points); Bettelmatt Sky Race (BSR) will instead see the athletes compete on the 37 km course for almost 2,500 m D+- (2 ITRA points) already tested in 2019; Bettelmatt Race (BR) will also take place on the classic course, which includes 24 km for 950 m D+-.
Thanks to this great variety, on July 10 it will be possible for everyone to really enjoy the wonderful area of the Alta Val Formazza: the two longest distances, certified by ITRA (International Trail Running Association) will touch the 3000 m of the 3A Hut; the BT and BSR athletes will then descend to the hamlet of Canza, to go up the path next to the Toce waterfall, one of the most characteristic places in this area, and return to the classic place of departure and arrival, the village of Riale, over 1,700 m altitude.
The 24 km Bettelmatt Race route follows the first part of the Bettelmatt Trail, passing by Lake Toggia, Passo San Giacomo and Alpe Bettelmatt before returning to Riale.
Salomon Golden Trail National Series
Also in 2021 the event organized by Formazza Event will be part of the Salomon Golden Trail National Series circuit, the circuit that brings together some of the most beautiful and spectacular trails in Italy.
Meanwhile, nine nations are already represented: Italy, Slovenia, Holland, Germany, Venezuela, Sweden, Poland, Spain, Switzerland.
BUT it’s FISKY race
This year BUT Formazza will run under the aegis of F.I.Sky, or the Italian Sky Running Federation.
