Turn-by-turn directions

The trail run starts from the centre of Badia at the parking area of the chairlift "Santa Croce/Heilig Kreuz".

The mountain running climbs up on hiking trail no. 7. The route goes beneath the Santa Croce and La Crusc chairlifts, over gently rolling meadows and through sparse woodland. As you run, the mighty Sasso di Santa Croce is always in front of you. The first part of the climb is on asphalt (about 1.5 km) and a well-surfaced gravel track.

For the return to Badia you can choose various alternative routes or you can descend with the chairlifts La Crusc and Santa Croce.
