About us

Alta Via Stage Race 20122013

In 2011 the asso­ci­a­tion Ospi­tal­ità Alta Via dei Monti Lig­uri — which brings together accom­mo­da­tion facil­i­ties and tourist ser­vices located near the Alta Via main path or along the trails con­nect­ing the ridge with the hin­ter­land and the coast — decided to embrace the dream of some moun­tain bike enthu­si­asts, for­mer orga­niz­ers of the very well-​known 24h di Finale: car­ring out an adven­tur­ous and spec­tac­u­lar stage race in Lig­uria that fol­lows the exam­ple of the myth­i­cal events arranged every year in Europe, Canada and South Africa. Everyone’s com­mit­ment allowed this dream to become true and in 2012 the first edi­tion takes place with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of 30 brave bikers!

Alta Via Stage Race 20142017

In 2013 a group of par­tic­u­larly involved mem­bers set up the new sports asso­ci­a­tion Lig­uri­avven­tura, ded­i­cated to the pro­mo­tion of sports adven­tures in the Lig­urian hin­ter­land. And the most leg­endary adven­ture can only be Alta Via Stage Race! The main part­ner remains Ospi­tal­ità Alta Via dei Monti Lig­uri, cre­ator of the event and orga­nizer of the first two edi­tions. From 2014 to 2017 the mem­bers of Lig­uri­avven­tura deploy their per­sonal com­mit­ment, their skills, their love for the ter­ri­tory and the desire to make it known to those who love out­door sports. Many names ought to be men­tioned: Lorenzo Car­lini, Marco March­ese, Clau­dio Simon­etti, Mar­tina Migli­azzi, Marina De Mar­tini, Marina Caramellino, Mauro Par­odi, Vanessa Chiesa e Anna­maria Messina, with the pre­cious sup­port of Simone Cat­assi, a tire­less biker who takes care of the trail’s inspec­tion and the real­iza­tion of the GPS tracks.

Alta Via Stage Race 2020 — The adven­ture starts again!

After a two year break, Alta Via Stage Race returns thanks to A.S.D Out­door Expe­ri­ence Finale Lig­ure, a new asso­ci­a­tion founded and coor­di­nated by Vanessa Chiesa, who already used to be part of the team which cre­ated and pro­moted the first six editions.

Moti­vated by the pas­sion that has always pushed her to ded­i­cate her­self to the pro­mo­tion of the Lig­urian ter­ri­tory, as well as the desire to resume the inter­rupted thread, with­out leav­ing an event still so full of poten­tials on hold any longer, Vanessa has taken up the chal­lenge and decided to put all her heart and efforts in this chal­leng­ing project.

The Alta Via Stage Race 2020 event orig­i­nates from here, com­bin­ing the expe­ri­ence acquired by Vanessa and some other orga­niz­ers of the pre­vi­ous events, con­quered by her enthu­si­asm, to the fresh­ness of a new team, where exper­tise and pro­fes­sion­al­ism are the nec­es­sary assets to make the event grow and trans­form into a pres­ti­gious appoint­ment on the inter­na­tional scene of Stage Races and Marathons. A ref­er­ence point for ath­letes who wish to test their per­sonal and tech­ni­cal resources.
