L’Italia si conferma la squadra da battere anche nell’ultima giornata di gare agli europei masters di corsa in montagna.
In una domenica uggiosa ed autunnale, si é svolta la prima gara assoluta masters di un campionato europeo.
Quasi 80 atleti al via che hanno gareggiato lungo un percorso caratterizzato da un anello di 870 metri da percorrere 10 volte più un rettilineo di lancio/arrivo di 650 metri.

Doppio oro per i colori italiani che entreranno nella storia proprio per essere i primi in un campionato continentale. Miglior tempo assoluto per Paola Vicenzi (W55 1:19:31) e Luigi Sesso (M50 1:12:52). Gli azzurri sono stati pure i protagonisti dei vari podi di categoria.

Nel trail, nella gara femminile, parlando in termini di classifica generale, il Friuli ha festeggiato la medaglia d’oro di Irene Palazzi (W40 podisti Cordenons) che ha chiuso la prova in 5:03:24. Seconda la tedesca Elke Keller (W55 5:03:55). Terza la rumena Ghizela Vonica (W45 5:10:07).

In campo maschile la Francia si è confermata un’ottima squadra, piazzando sul podio generale Guillaume Rouger (primo tempo 3:55:03 – M35) e Michel Bowie (terzo tempo 4:11:37 – M50). Ottimo secondo, il friulano Andrea Moretton (atletica Aviano) con il tempo di 4:02:25 (M45). Per il territorio del pordenonese una grande soddisfazione sia per i risultati che per l’organizzazione della Cemont, anche secondo i partecipanti, le delegazioni straniere e l’EMA (European Masters Athletics).

Entusiasti i runners del percorso del trail di 43,5 chilometri che ha attraversato le località più suggestive della zona, tra laghi, pozze smeraldine, gallerie e cime incontaminate con un dislivello di 1800 metri.

“E’stata un’esperienza incredibile che ci ha riempito di soddisfazioni ed emozioni”. Queste le parole a caldo del presidente del comitato organizzatore Val Tramontina 2021, Giampaolo Bidoli. “Tutta la nostra comunità si è dedicata a questo evento con oltre 200 volontari ai quali vanno tutti i più sinceri ringraziamenti.

(News del 18.09.2021)

Tramonti di sotto 18 settembre 2021.
Un sabato da incorniciare per i colori azzurri agli europei masters di corsa in montagna.

Nel campo gara allestito in località Matan si sono presentati 315 atleti provenienti da 17 nazioni e suddivisi nelle varie categorie femminili e maschili.
Le 92 donne sono partite per prime affrontando il percorso tecnico e veloce di 9.2 chilometri all’interno della splendida natura della vallata.
Al termine della prova la fortissima italo-rumema dell’atletica Rimini nord Ana Nanu (W45) ha tagliato il traguardo per prima con il tempo di 50.05, precedendo di in solo secondo un’altra grande runner, l’ungherese Merenyi Timea (W50). Terza la campionessa europea uscente, la belga Charlotte Cotton (50.54, W40) che, negli ultimi 2.5 chilometri, ha rimontato una serie di atlete che la precedevano.
In gara anche la pluricampiomessa del mondo di mezza maratona ed un oro mondiale ed europeo di cross, la nederlese di origini kenyane Lorah Kiplagat.

In campo maschile (223 starters), sin dal primo chilometro un gruppo di sei atleti ha preso la testa della corsa, rimanendo abbastanza compatto fino al quinto chilometro. A quel punto ha aumentato decisamente ritmo Fabrizio Barizza (atletica Dolomiti Belluno), lasciandosi alle spalle il ceco Jaroslav Vitek. Negli ultimi due chilometri gli atleti immediatamente dietro ai due leaders hanno giocato le loro carte per cercare di conquistare il rerzo posto assoluto. Al traguardo Barizza (M40) chiude con il tempo di 43.18 davanti all’atleta delle Repubblica Ceca (44.38, M45). Al terzo posto, dopo un’ottima ultima parte di corsa, Luca Benini (M35) che ha fermato il crono a 45.01.

The starting line includes top-caliber athletes such as Dutch runner of Kenyan origine, Lornah Kiplagat,with three world half marathon titles (PB 1h06'25 "), World and European Cross Country Championship golds and three Olympic medals in the 10000m and marathon.

Sunday September 19th is dedicated to Nordic Walking and trail running competition.

For the first time ever, Nordic Walking will make its debut in the European master championship in Val Tramontina. A type of fitness walk using specially-designed poles and alternating arm movements with opposite movements of the feet, Nordi Walking uses up to 90% of the muscles of the body. According to Nordic Walking creator, Marko Kantaneva of Finland, it is the most efficient and enjoyable workout in the world and a way to increase physical vigor, improve overall health and mental vitality. The race will be ten times around an 870-meter-loop plus a starting/finish straight of 650 meters. As there is no international regulation recognized by World Athletics, the EMA has developed its own, which takes into account standards used in various countries. Next steps will be based on results from this first race, which has athletes registered from 7 countries around the world.

On the same day the trail running competition will cover 43.5 kilometers and an elevation of 1800m. Crossing some of the most evocative locations in the area, the route showcases lakes, emerald pools, tunnels and pristine peaks.


All three competitions are immersed in nature and take athletes through breathtaking landscapes in the Friulian Dolomites, one of the nine mountain systems registered on the World Heritage List.

Along with purely competitive aspects, the organizing committee has created a unique program of side events offering guests the best of the territory and involving local businesses, the municipalities of Tramonti di Sotto and Tramonti di Sopra, the regional Ecomuseum of the Friulian Dolomites, Lis Aganis, other communities in the Pordenone area, Promoturismo FVG and the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia.


On September 19, Tramonti di Sopra will host the herb and wellness festival. The inaugural ceremony of the European masterswill take place on Friday the 17th, with the parade of delegations at 6:00pm.
Tramonti di Sotto will host the event village and the start/finish areas of the competitions.

(News of 25.07.2021)

The organizing committee of the European mountain running, trail running and Nordic walking championships has been hard at work throughout the summer after postponing the event from May to September because of Covid-19. In Val Tramontina, in the Carnic pre-Alps of the Pordenone area, numerous checks are being carried out along the three race routes to ensure maximum safety, as stated by Giampaolo Bidoli (president of the organizing team):

“We are interested in fostering a combination of competitive spirit, performance and, at the same time, well-being and involvement for all participants, to discover unspoiled natural areas, traditional villages and the culture of hospitality in these hidden but rich areas for history and tradition.”

The mountain running competition is a 9.5 kilometer run with an altitude difference of 450 meters. The fast, technical route covers the most beautiful points in the valley. The trail running competition race is 43.5 kilometers with 1800m of altitude difference and includes lakes, tunnels and pristine peaks. The newest event is the nordic walking route, which goes along the bottom of the valley 10 kilometers over 8 laps. The three challenging outdoor events take athletes through breathtaking landscapes.

Along with competitive details, the organizing committee is also putting together programs to showcase the territory through local organizations from the municipalities of Tramonti di Sotto and Tramonti di Sopra and the regional Ecomuseum of the Friulian Dolomites Lis Aganis, other communities in the Pordenone area, as well as Promoturismo FVG and the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. It is a collective commitment bringing together three important organizations: the Cemont Association, SMART Atletica San Martino 2.0 and ASD Polisportiva Valtramontina.
