During a press conference held on February 12 in Domodossola, the candidacy of BUT Formazza, Veia International Race and Rampigada to host the Sky Running World Championships that will take place in 2022, was made official. This is the first step necessary to bring to Italy, and more precisely to the land of Ossola, a very high level event which sees the participation of over 1,000 athletes from around 40 countries, with the best of international sky running.
In this moment of international emergency, due to COVID-19, we at Formazza Event, organizers of BUT Formazza, wanted to give a small signal: we have in fact donated € 1,000.00 to the San Biagio hospital in Domodossola, that is engaged in this difficult battle like all Italian hospitals. The donation was made through the platform www.gofundme.com.
