Lema Trail

20 September 2020
Monte Lema, Miglieglia



The first edition of the Lema Trail, a beautiful trail race from the pretty village of Miglieglia in the Malcantone to the summit of Monte Lema.

Set between the lakes of Lugano and Maggiore and the valleys of the Luinese, Monte Lema stands out against the Italian Switzerland with its 1624 meters and dominates a panorama that embraces the Ticino valleys and beyond.

From Miglieglia a modern cable car goes up the slopes of Monte Lema and in just 10 minutes takes visitors to the summit. Along the way, suspended in the air, you can enjoy a breathtaking view that opens to infinity. For those who will try this route without taking the cable car, the travel time will be a little longer.

The start of the race is scheduled near the Monte Lema cable car (where several free parking spaces will be available) and after a first stretch on asphalt you enter the path and in direct contact with nature. We climb for approx. 950 meters before reaching the hostel on arrival of the cable car and continue to the summit where the finish line will be placed. A fast, panoramic and very stimulating route.

The race will be held on Sunday 5 April 2020 (whatever the weather) and will open a long season of mountain races and outdoor training in contact with nature.
