Sunday, October 24, 2021 has been scheduled the edition 2021 of Bellagio Sky Race, the skyrunning race that starts from the historic center of Bellagio and reaches the top of Mount San Primo (1685m asl), with stretches of breathtaking views across the center of Lake Como.
The Bellagio Skyrace is a unique event that gives pure emotions to the public. The route gives the opportunity to reach easily by car or with minimal movements on foot several strategic points, such as the square of the Park of Mount San Primo, the parking lot for the Martina refuge, the locations Paum, Rovenza and Brogno.
It is difficult to establish which is the best part of the route of the sky bellagina. The urban stretch, in the historic center of Bellagio, filled with groups of tourists from all over the world even in the season of dead leaves. Or the gardens of Villa Melzi, where exotic and rare plants alternate with secular trees, grafting themselves with studied elegance in the area between the lake and the promontory. Or again, the ridge from the summit of San Primo (1685 m asl) to Mount Ponciv (1465 m asl), the lakeside end of the Larian triangle, which offers a seductive view of Lake Como, a vast blue mirror surrounded by the pre-Alps.
An itinerary that gives emotions step by step, designed by the NSC Bellagio Sky Team, an organizing association that with this event has carved out an important space in the national panorama of skyrunning. And if the most evident proof is the reconfirmation in the calendar of the SNS (Skyrunning National Series), don't underestimate the numbers (about six hundred athletes every year), the origin of the enrolled athletes (from various countries) and the level of those who fight for a place in the top ten.
In fact, Tadei Pivk, Jean Baptiste Simukeka, Daniel Antonioli, and the young triathlon champion Marcello Ugazio have entered the list of winners. To give an idea of the quality of the female athletes, it is enough to refer to the 2018 edition, which saw the affirmation of the Rwandan Primitive Niyirora in front of the Romanian Denisa Dragomir, the Russian orienteering champion Natalia Gemperle and Elisa Desco who had to settle for fourth place.
