ASD SentieroUNO was the first organization organize a running event with over 1000 participants in covid era orange alert zone.
This has been possible thanks to a work of planning, study and authorization process that started during the lockdown of March 2020 and ended with the January 2021 edition of the Corsa della Bora.
A very strict protocol, a long training phase for volunteers, and a continuous process of information to competitors have been the prerogative of the 2021 edition.
The result was to ensure an event with maximum safety both in terms of health and on the race course, which saw zero hospitalisations and only 22 withdrawals out of 1044 competitors.
Choosing a race at this time means not only “hoping” that it won’t be cancelled, but also trusting the seriousness of the organization.
We can’t guarantee that covid won’t be there, but we can guarantee that:
- We are prepared to hold the race even in orange alert level conditions.
- We have solutions to ensure the participation of foreign athletes.
- We are committed to constant telephone and email support, always providing up-to-date and detailed information. We will NEVER deny you an answer. Always being present for us is a priority.
- We have alternative routes in case the cross-border solution cannot be realized.
- We can guarantee you services that are often not given not because they can’t be given but because they require higher costs, such as:
- Refreshments with “real food”, packaged with the utmost safety but not the classic bar or packaged snack
- Shower facilities, cloakroom, and hot food on long runs.
- We are committed to working more, not less, not using covid as an excuse to offer less at a higher price.
- If this is not enough we offer you a protection and refund policy that allows you to have indemnities of up to 120% of the value of your membership or transfer on all S1 events.
In the spring of 2020, when everyone was preparing for a covid-free summer and fall races like it was nothing, we started working on a winter edition in the highest alert zone and in the middle of the third wave.
In January 2021, while hoping for a rapid solution to this situation, we have begun to apply a new management protocol that will allow us to deal with this emergency in the utmost safety and comfort, ready, despite ourselves, to experience it as a new normality.
At the end of the 2021 edition of the Corsa della Bora we also donated 500 rapid swabs tests to the primary schools of Trieste, because the race is also solidarity and participation.
