It is definitely going to be one of the winning cards of the great international event dedicated to horses, 10 to 27th July. The race track, which was carefully examined by the organizing Committee of Italia Endurance Festival, the European Juniores and Young riders and the CEIO, has all the characteristics to be the ideal host of the endurance sporting discipline.

120 km stretching across a vast country side which follows gently the natural course of the river Adige from north to south, from San Martino Buon Albergo to Albarello, across San Giovanni Lupatoto, Zevio, Belfiore and Ronco all’Adige.

The race track is made up of three loops: the 38 km Yellow Loop, the 27 km Red one and the 19,5 km the Blue Loop to be repeated both during the European and CEIO2* races in the following order: yellow, yellow, red and blue. A yellow loop less in the 90 km CEI1*.

On the background, as we already mentioned, there is the beautiful fluvial landscape which preserved its uncontaminated integrity over the centuries, an exciting and varied environment immersed in the natural oasis of Pontoncello Park, with paths shadowed by towering black poplars and elegant weeping willows immersed in the magical silence of the landscape.

Horses and riders blend in perfect harmony with these ideal surroundings, in which the relationship between man and horse reaches its utmost expression.

The silence is interrupted only by the sounds of nature and by an extremely rich fauna living in the Park: from the birds’ chirping to the croaking of frogs, from the leaping of a hare to the elusive look of a fox.

Participants will be amazed at the beauty and uniqueness of the Italia Festival track.

Seeing is the best proof.
