The Asics Malcesine Baldo Trail returns on 4 and 5 May 2024. A two-day international event, along trails that touch the Veneto and Trentino Alto Adige regions, winding through the municipalities of Malcesine, Brentonico and Avio. Breathtaking routes, with unique views that combine the grandeur of the mountains and the charm of the lake.

For trail running enthusiasts, an event, organised by VRM Team Asd, that has now become a fixture on the calendar, with three specialities to run, from the most challenging to the scenic and within reach of every runner. The response from the public has been enthusiastic: at the moment there are about 600 registered participants, with a 38% increase compared to the last edition and numbers tripled, compared to 2023, for foreign participation. We are heading towards a sell-out, which will probably be reached in the days leading up to the race. The 24 km Medium distance proved to be the most popular.
