By participating in the S1 Night trail you will start by the sea, passing through the Miramare Castle illuminated and with the lights of the city in the background.
The white of the limestone of the karst ridges meets the headlamp giving suggestive reflections in a scenario where the lights of Trieste overlooking the sea are always visible in the background, a finish line that is visible but cannot be reached without effort!
By participating in the S1 Night trail you will start by the sea, passing through the Miramare Castle illuminated and with the city lights in the background. 4 km of panoramic waterfront will lead to the steep slopes of which Umberto Saba also wrote:
Then I went up a steep,
populous in the beginning, there deserted,
closed by a low wall:
a corner in which alone
I sit; and it seems to me that where it ends
you finish the city. Trieste has a grumpy grace,
If you like it,
he’s like a bitter and voracious bad boy,
with blue eyes and too big hands
to give a flower;
like a love
It is precisely the steep climbs, the dry stone walls, and the forgotten alleys that yes overlook the unexpected views of Trieste, which lead the competitors to the Karst plateau.
From here the terrain is almost always runable, with very fast sections that will take you first to Mount Orsario and then to Mount Cocusso, the two highest points of the Trieste Karst. From there you go down and join for the last 30 km on the 42 km route, first on a priceless view of the illuminated city of Trieste and Koper, then at sunrise along the vineyards of Terrano and Vitovska.
A magical path, entirely overlooking the city and the sea, but with unique views and an ever-varied terrain.
