Alta Via Stage Race - Equipment



Every ath­lete and every Team must be pro­vided with an equip­ment suit­able 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 of items required of the par­tic­i­pants is referred to HERO, E-​RACE and FUN for­mu­las. WEEK­END for­mula par­tic­i­pants might want to adjust quan­ti­ties in rela­tion to the dif­fer­ent kind of race.
