A finish line with your feet in the water...
If you took part in the first two editions of the Corsa della Bora you will remember the finish line in Portopiccolo.
In the following years we moved the arrival to the Visogliano sports field.
This is to optimize the logistics of space, as the square of Portopiccolo, was in fact, too small!
Apart from beauty, what does it mean to have the finish line in Portopiccolo?
The synergy with Portopiccolo is renewed, guaranteeing the maximum practicality of the race services for those taking part, without the limitations of space and harmoniously integrating the arrival of the race into the setting of Portopiccolo.
Thanks to a special agreement, competitors of the Corsa della Bora can stay directly at the finish line at a special price. The discount code for the reservation is included in the confirmation email.

👟 For the 9 or 13 km walk:
Do not plan to park at the start. Both in Santa Croce (Kriz) and Prosecco (Prosek) there are few parking spaces. Access your runner profile and book the shuttle that will take you from PortoPiccolo, BoraVillage, where you will find ample parking, to the Start. Remember to arrive well in advance, as the shuttles depart from the Strada Costiera. This way, at the end of the walk, you won't have to wait for a return bus.
👟 For the races of 21, 29, 38, 57 km:
These are linear races, which start from one point and end at a different point, specifically Bora Village, PortoPiccolo.
You can choose accommodation in either the start area, the finish area (Bora Village, Sistiana), or in Trieste Centre.
🚌 On the morning of the race, we provide a shuttle service from both Trieste Central Station and Bora Village (the finish line for all races) to the starting points. It is mandatory to book the shuttle, which costs 3 euros. Booking is done exclusively through your runner profile, and cash payments on the spot are not allowed.
In the afternoon, free shuttles without reservation return to Trieste Central Station, approximately every two hours until 19:00.
🕓 Before making your decision, we recommend checking the page of your race to verify the shuttle times.
🏃♂️ If you expect to reach the finish line shortly before the time limit, we suggest choosing accommodation in the finish area.
🏅 For the races of 9, 80, 164 km and Ipertrail:
We recommend choosing accommodation in the finish area, near the Bora Village. The return shuttle service to Trieste is only active in the afternoon of the race day and therefore may not be available for athletes who finish during the night or in the early morning hours.
🚗 If you are traveling with friends or family, it might be convenient to stay in Trieste as well, but in this case, we recommend arranging your own transport from the finish to the city.
For the 164 km Ultra or Ipertrail race, if you have company, it might be a great idea to stay in the start area. Please note that there is no shuttle service provided for the return. ⚠️
Advice for all runners: If you are traveling alone, are not very familiar with the area, are not used to managing logistics, or want the simplest solution, we suggest staying in the Finish Area and taking the shuttle from the Finish to the start. Alternatively, stay in Trieste and move to the finish area on the morning of the race taking the shuttle from there. There is plenty of parking available. It takes 15 minutes to walk from the bib pick-up area to the shuttle start, through the pedestrian village closed to traffic.
