What’s Ultra Trail Lako Orta (Vibram-UTLO®)
UTLO was born in 2010 by the A.S.D. Trail Running: at the start, the competi¬tion offered only two race distances, the 36km and the 22km, reaching almost 250 runners.
In October 2011 UTLO became official entering in the International Trail Run¬ning schedule: it quickly grew up to 400 runners participants.
In 2019 the competition closed with 2200 partcipants, almost 500 foreigner runners, from 48 different nations and the rest were Italians coming from 71 districts and 21 regions.
We are getting ready for a very special 2020 edition: the shorter distances, the 140km, the 100 km, the 70, the 60km, the 34km and the 17 km are coming back and beside them a new real Ultra distance will be available
The brand new 140km will run up to the Mottarone’s Hill, with the two Orta and Maggiore Lakes view, reaching 2200 runners participants.
