The shuttles leave from the center of Trieste and from the Bora Village, so you can decide to sleep in the city or at the arrival area. The same shuttle takes you back to the city after the race. So the whole race is accessible without using your own means of transportation, but only with the shuttles provided by the organization.
From our website, in the section “Information -> Getting to Trieste” you will find all the ways to get to Trieste and under the list of hotels registered with us. You can view the structures on the map and choose the type that best suits your needs.
The presence of the S1 shuttle service is also indicated in the description of the structure.
So, if you prefer to be near the arrival area you can select the facilities in the arrival area, if you prefer to do “city life” do not worry, with the shuttles you are perfectly connected to the race. We suggest not to sleep in Pesek, the start of 57 km if you run the 57km and you plan to finish it in more than 10 hours. you give you the maximum comfort and time to shower, have a massage and a good meal before the last shuttle.
