Only the Brave
9 - 16 June 2024

Each participant must be provided with suitable equipment for the race. It is recommended not to underestimate the importance of the mandatory items, whose request is based on the characteristics of the route (you must cross very isolated areas, therefore it is essential that every athlete should be as self-sufficient as possible) and on the weather conditions, often unstable along the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri (risk of fog, wind and cold, even in summer).

Please note that the list is referred to HERO formula participants. Therefore, WEEK END formula participants will have to adjust quantities of some items
