The three courses in programm are: Bettelmatt Trail, Bettelmatt Skyrace e Bettelmatt Race.
Bettelmatt Trail (BT) will return to the classic route, with a distance of 57 km for over 3,000 m D + -; Bettelmatt Sky Race (BSR) will instead see the athletes compete on the 37 km course for almost 2,500 m D + – already tested in 2019; also Bettelmatt Race (BR) will take place on the classic course, which includes 24 km for 950 m D + -.
Thanks to this great variety, on 10 July it will be possible for everyone, each according to their own training, to better experience the famous High Altitude Emotions characterizing this race, which sees the athletes of the two longest distances reach the 3000 m of the 3A Refuge; 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, beyond 1,700 m of altitude.
The 24 km Bettelmatt Race route follows the first part of the Bettelmatt Trail, passing through Lake Toggia, Passo San Giacomo and Alpe Bettelmatt before returning to Riale.
