Back to its second edition, it is the sporting event of resistance and courage, which runs through a wonderful path that goes from Villa Aldobrandini to Villa Rasponi, and that winds through a landscape of vineyards, olive groves, XVII century villas, Renaissance fountains, beautiful avenues.
Frascati and Grottaferrata, two cities set in history, main characters of this off-road route, offers a challenge to the experts of running and mountain bike, and the opportunity for the neophytes of duathlon to prove themselves over their limit.
The race takes place on Sprint distance, which provides 3km of run, 14Km MTB bike, and closes with 1.5 km running, with technical sections on dirt, all entirely closed to traffic.
