Race Stages and Technical Equipment for Magraid 100 Km Ultramarathon

“Steppa” “Grave” “Risorgive” These are the names of the three Magraid stages.

Soil Conditions. The soil on which the race will take place is much more demanding than it seems at a first glance especially because of its extreme variability, from dirt roads to moorland, from large gravel paths to pebble roads. We strongly suggest to check the Event’s official web site for any kind of information and news: the Event Organizer is available to arrange for a race route preview. The Event Organizer may modify and/or cancel any stage of the Race for security reasons, for adverse weather conditions or due to reasons not depending on the Event Organizer; in these cases the entry fee or part of it will not be refunded.
