The town of Susa has a strong historical to the U18 and Youth running. The event was inspired by the people of Susa because every year the Memorial Marco Germanetto takes place for encouraging young runners to enjoy the sport of Mountain Running and the WMRA saw a great benefit in holding an International race for young runners. After difficulites to find a suitable location in 2019 it is a pleasure to be able to return to the birth place of the event.
The date is fixed for the weekend of 24/25 August with the races taking place in the evening of the 24th.
The location of Susa is in the Susa Valley in the region of Piemonte, North West Italy and it is an historical Roman town on the ancient trading route between North and South. It has a Roman Arena, aqueducts and the remnants of Roman roads and fortifications.
