The stunning landscape of Verbano - Cusio - Ossola in Piedmont is the backdrop for the Vibram UTLO race (ULTO stands for the Ultra Trail of Lake Orta). The race starts from the town of Omegna and SBS is proud to be an official sponsor again.

 

Only a few days are left until the Vibram ULTO Train Running competition will start from Omegna and into the winding terrain and dramatic scenery of Verbano Cusio Ossola.

120, 82, 58, 34 or 18 kilometres: these are the different routes that the 1900 athletes have signed up to run this year.
The first runners will set off at 11PM on Friday, October 20: 120 kilometers long trail between the Verbano-Cusio-Ossola, Novara and Vercelli provinces. Frontrunners are expected to cross the finishing line on Saturday night.
Next morning, Saturday October 21, the athletes taking part in the races for 82, 58, 34 and 17 km will set off. This year, for the second time, a small group from SBS will be running in the 34 km category.

In events like the Ultra Trail of Lake Orta, given the length and difficulty of terrain, a smartphone is an essential piece of equipment for the runners.
SBS is providing 700 ultra lightweight pouches with zip closure for the athletes to carry their smartphones. In addition, the best performers in each of the distance categories will receive Bluetooth Sport Runway Evolution headsets.
