To make things easier we summarized here the key info:

We have plenty of parking spots. However, to create more, we have even closed a road. We invite you, if possible, to use public transportation and the S1 shuttles that connect the center of Trieste to the Bora Village.

Up to 10.00 am it will be possible to park in the area around the Bora Village, from 10.00 onwards the traffic will be closed and it will be possible only to go out.

The 2021 edition will take place on January 3rd. The hours and dates shown therefore refer to January 3, 2021



A great alternative is to park in PortoPiccolo, get off in the bay by car and from the parking lot take the elevator towards Cava Alta that leads to the coast road.

There are 1500 meters on foot, but it allows you to park comfortably and for free indoors and to visit PortoPiccolo.

Our association and our volunteers put all their commitment and many resources throughout the year to organize the Corsa della Bora This commitment means a large investment, both financially and laborious.

Parallel to this, there is the desire to protect the safety of competitors as much as possible and understand all causes of force majeure.

IL which translates into an approach of maximum protection of the competitor and safety, as regards objective issues, and a less complete protection policy regarding i “change program”.

Bib sales, modifications, delegates, personal injuries

Event cancellation

The event takes place but “they don’t let me participate”

However, in the drafting of the regulation, it does not fall into the case in which the event can take place but the competitor is unable to participate for non-personal reasons other than serious injury (Article 7). We will wait until 2021 to formalize this change, which for fairness we do not add now, as changing the regulation after the registration of many is not a practice in the name of transparency.

We then proceed with the interpretation of the current regulation in a perspective of maximum favor of the competitor, i.e. if you cannot travel, you cannot participate for non-personal reasons other than injury, the same policy applies as reimbursement of cancellation due to the inability to run the event. A practical example could be a legal ban on travel to or from departure or destination. The competitor’s inability to travel is considered to be the organizer’s inability to carry out the event. A protection never seen before.

Finally, a clarification is necessary: the work to carry out the event in maximum safety is enormous. only the health and local authorities to judge if the event is possible. Obviously the same goes for the travel ban. It follows that the “voices”, the “forecasts” or the “considerations” of more or less accredited experts cannot be put on the same level as the Health and/or Territorial Authority.

Exchange, refund, cancellation, and transfer policies are therefore always implemented at real conditions of the moment in which the request is made.

For example if a competitor requests a refund why provides catastrophic weather, pandemics or other events that could cause cancellation, but at the moment no decree-law or disposition of the health or territorial authorities or communication of the organization foresees these facts, the request does not fall within the real causes, but in a personal interpretation. This request is subject to article 7 of the regulation or only the transfer to third parties is allowed.

Have you decided what to do?
Bib Transfer – Change Distance Contact

In the event of a canceled race, we will proceed automatically as per the regulations.

To transfer the bib to another person, it is necessary to follow the online procedure.

This procedure must be completed by both runners: the person who gives the bib and the profile of the recipient of the bib must be complete its mandatory data, under penalty of invalidation of the procedure.

  1. If “YOUR REGISTRATION” appears at the top right of the Menu, select “LOGOUT”

  2. Then go to

  3. Select Transfer to another person


  4. Continue

  5. On the payment page, enter the other person’s name in the Notes field


  6. If you are the one who receives the bib, once you have got the payment confirmation, at the top right click on YOUR PROFILE and then on RUNNER PROFILE complete all the fields with an asterisk and SAVE with the button at the bottom of the page. If you do not complete step 6 the procedure is invalid

The management of registrations has a cost, both in terms of bank commissions, and in terms of materials and accounting and administrative work behind it. Apart from this aspect, we ask for a symbolic contribution for these operations also for a double check requirement: the payment of a small amount, in the case of the bib transfer, that both parties have completed a profile, entering the necessary data, and have proved their identity.

This is to avoid unpleasant misunderstandings, and worse still, unacceptable manouvers of identity dissimulation.
