Another old favourite that weâ€™re excited to welcome back to the World Cup this year is Grossglockner Berglauf! We visit some stunning locations in the World Cup, but this race must be one of the finest! Let's take a look at what else makes this race so special.
Weâ€™re welcoming some old favourites to the World Cup this year, but weâ€™re also embracing some races which are new to us. One of these is Canfranc-Canfranc, a race which weâ€™re certain is going to make a big splash!
This year we welcome an old favourite back to the World Cup â€“ Chiavenna Lagunc. On 10th October runners will head to the very north of Italy to take part in this short uphill race, starting in the historic old town of Chiavenna and finishing in Lagunc.
Over the coming weeks weâ€™re going to be taking a look at our 2021 World Cup races. But we wonâ€™t just be looking at the events and the stunning routes, weâ€™ll be going behind the scenes to find out what really makes these races and the places they happen so special. First up, itâ€™s Broken Arrow. PLEASE NOTE: NEW RACE DATES are 1 and 3 October 2021.
Filippo Fazzini, the race director of Giir di Mont for the last 20 years, has written the definitive book about this iconic race, pouring over years and years of stories, images and documents and bringing them together in this great new publication.
Normally at this time of year weâ€™d be looking back at race highlights from the year, remembering the World and European Championships and World Cup winners. However, there was little normal about 2020. Some of the classic mountain races did take place in the second half of the year, much to the excitement of athletes, but opportunities to stand on a start line were limited. It was a year of adaptation for everybody - athletes, race organisers and the WMRA.
