La Direttissima® K2 is the vertical race that every runner dreams of, really unique, that leaves a mark.
It will start from the heart of the city of Trento, Piazza Duomo, along 2,053 uphill meters distributed over a length of 12 km and 700 meters.
After leaving the imposing Fountain of Neptune behind you, take a flat road, thus passing from the historic center of the capital Trentino, to the suburb of Piedicastello. From the forecourt of the Alpine troops, take “Ca’ dei Gai” street, following the ascent on Mandorlare street (Masi dei Dossi di Sardagna), thus reaching the Chapel of S. Rocco di Sardagna.
Then you will have to run 600 meters of asphalt before taking the path n ° 645 of the “DIRETTISSIMA”, which accompanies us to Loc. Vaneze, where you start the climb on the “3/tre” ski slope.
Arriving at the valley station of the Montesel Chairlift, take the “3/Tre Panoramica” slope and reach the top station of the 3 / Tre chairlift, continue on the “Lavam”an slope and reach the mountain station of the Montesel lift. The slightly downhill stretch of the diagonal Montesel path interrupts the climb, until the start of the Palon lift in Vason, from which the Austro-Hungarian path of the pines will start up to Cima Palon at the finish line of La Direttissima K2.
