The 2018 edition of BUT Formazza is getting closer and closer! The event will be held on July 14th, for the first time on Saturday, with four planned tracks: Bettelmatt Trail 52 km, Bettelmatt Sky Race 35 km, Bettelmatt Race 22 km and Bettelmatt Mini Trail La Stampa from 8 km.
On July 1st, the registrations for the longest race scheduled this year, the Bettelmatt Trail 50 km, (3.296 D + -, 4 UTMB points) will be closed. The race has beaten the registration record of the last year and promises to be decidedly spectacular, with the new path that will lead athletes to the Cascata del Toce for the first time.
The registrations are going very well also for the two classic distances, Bettelmatt Sky Race (1,940 m D + -, 2 points UTMB), and Bettelmatt Race (750 m D + -); until 30/6 the odds will be facilitated for both distances (respectively 35.00 and 25.00 €), then from 1/7 will go up to 40.00 and 30.00 €.
The registrations of the BSR 35 km will close on July 8, while the registrations to the BR 22 km will close on line and in the registration points on 12 July; it will be possible to register for the 22 km BR only on the day of the race, but at further increased prices.
Meanwhile, the nations represented at the 2018 edition of BUT Formazza are increasing: besides France, England, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland and, of course, Italy, Finland, Germany and the Czech Republic have been added.
With the increase in registrations, the first level names also arrive: Marco Giudici, who will try to repeat the 2017 victory in the Bettelmatt Race, and, in the Bettelmatt Trail, Riccardo Montani, this year third in the Garbagna, have confirmed their presence.
