Scenic Trail è una competizione di Trail Running che coinvolge un’area di 400Km quadrati toccando 8 comuni: Alto Malcantone, Bedano, Capriasca, Isone, Lugano, Mezzovico-Vira, Monte Ceneri e Torricella Taverne , in Canton Ticino.
Si svolge durante il secondo weekend nel mese di giugno. Nato nel 2013, vede la prima edizione su una distanza di 50Km e 3800m di dislivello lungo un percorso che si sviluppa sulle creste della Capriasca e del Luganese, offrendo un panorama mozzafiato (da qui il termine “Scenic”). Nel 2015, 2016 e 2017 Scenic Trail è stato premiato con lo Swiss Ultra Trail Award come miglior competizione di Trail Running in Svizzera. Per la sesta edizione sono offerti cinque percorsi di ineguagliabile bellezza.

Qui di seguito le risposte alle domande più frequenti per quel che riguarda la pratica del Trail Running in Svizzera così come risposte relative allo Scenic Trail. Facciamo presente che se aveste ulteriori domande siete pregati di scrivere una mail a [email protected] specificando la vostra richiesta. La risposta verrà pubblicata in questa rubrica in modo da chiarire anche ad altri concorrenti questa o quella situazione.
The award ceremony at the end of a race is a moment of conviviality and friendship which we believe has enormous value, also seen through the eyes of those who support the race with donations, volunteering, etc. If someone fails to participate in the prize giving, he is not entitled to be represented by third parties (also to avoid unclear situations) except in very special and justifiable cases. In principle those who are not present at the awards ceremony will not receive their prize and this this will be redistributed or used for other purposes.
Scenic Trail’s Bibs contain two electronic chips for detection of the time during the race. If these chips are obscured by jackets, backpacks, sweaters, etc, there is chance (especially under rainy conditions) that readers positioned along the trail(s) are not able to decipher the code therein contained. The competitor is therefore not registered at a given control point, which determines his disqualification. Precisely to cope with this technological deficit, the possibility exists to view movies and photographs taken during the race to determine if indeed a runner has passed a certain place or not, reading the number the bib. If, however, this remains invisible, covered with clothing or equipment, the race director has no chance to carry out a check. Additionally, runners who cut the route, or those who deliberately violate the rules, or who are guilty of unfair actions, can be identified by other competitors and announced at the direction of the race only if their bib number is clearly visible. Volunteers on the way are clearly instructed to stop runners whose bib is not worn as per Regulation (please read the section on bib positioning) and to remove them from the race. Please take note of this important information.
For the overnight stay in the area, we advise you to book well in advance through any web booking platform or via the local tourism office.
We offer a school gym for free use (take along with you mat and sleeping bag). We do have a limited space for mobile homes (subject to fees) and a free camping area on a first-come-first-served basis.
In Switzerland, races and competitions do generally have a large amount of fees and costs that fall entirely on the organization. A not exhaustive list of these costs, includes the permissions request, police expenses, those for the search and rescue team deployed along the trail, the rental of fixed structures like change rooms and showers, the rental of mobile structures like gazebos and finish arch, food and beverage purchase for the refurnishing points, the participation’s prizes like finisher t-shirts or bandana, runners transportations fees for busses or cars, insurances, some gift for the volunteers, the prize giving ceremony, the timing of the race including bib numbers, media coverage, advertisings, etc.
A part of these costs are covered by our generous sponsors, while another is covered by the incomes of the race itself. Scenic Trail can count on a very popular enrolment fee and we hope runners appreciate it. Thousands of volunteering hours are not taken into the calculation or that would make the race budget explode.
Creating an account allows you to easily manage enrollments at the different races by not having to repeatedly enter your data, and at the same time it allows the organizers to get important information about the runners including the emergency phone numbers of relatives or friends in case of accidents, the supervision of enrollment and requested options payments, or the use of discount coupons or invitations. Furthermore, this data (which are not disclosed to third parties for any reason ), serve to quantify the sizes of the finisher t-shirts distributed by size and gender, and to have a postal address in case a runner wants back some forgotten items, or wants to buy and receive comfortably at home a DVD with the pictures of the event , etc.
Being a supportive member of Rega has no relevance to this effect as the payment of a search and rescue operation is generally paid by the accident insurances of the rescued person. Often a small percentage of these costs is charged to the patient. Rega, in this case, could decide to waive that amount. Without an insurance that explicitly covers a recovery with helicopter, the costs fall entirely on the rescued person. Again, check your insurance policy or national laws governing such matters.
No, every runner must be insured individually with an accident insurance that covers sports events and as well search and rescue operations (for example, by helicopter). Every country has different laws and clauses regarding this issue and so each participant has to verify through the responsible office, his insurance coverage. An accident might occur even on a holiday abroad and the situation would be exactly the same. No Swiss race offers a collective accident cover. We reiterate therefore the responsibility of participants to verify the insurance coverage of a running accident. Contact your health/accident insurance company to know if your current coverage is sufficient or if you need accident insurance limited to the days of the race (this can be purchased ITRA).
No, competitors are welcome from their 13th birthday for the K18, 14th birthday for Vertical K4, 15th birthday for the K27, and 16th birthday for the K54 as long as the parents or guardian sign a resolution and take responsibility for the enrollment. For the K113, a minimum age of 18 years is mandatory.
No. In Switzerland, a medical certificate is not required to take part in a run. The runner certifies their health and ability to deal with a race, and have to assume the risks. A medical examination is recommended, but not mandatory.
From Bogno an organized shuttle-bus will take you back to Tesserete in about 20 minutes trip time.
