Pro Pradipaldo Association offers nature lovers a non-competitive walk in the hills around Pradipaldo, in simplicity, inviting participants to face it with a spirit based on healthy physical exercise and aimed at observing the slopes once covered with orchards , vegetable gardens and pastures that provided sustenance to the families who lived there and that now the passage of time and "progress" have transformed them into dense bush. Despite this profound transformation, along the paths - once used for agricultural use or for moving towards the village or towards the plain - it will be possible to glimpse, here and there, some vestiges of that past, witness to a completely different way of life, certainly harder and more uncomfortable, but less frenetic than the current one.
The walk will take place, at your choice, on one of the following routes:
a) GREEN trail – length 4 km, height difference 400 metres. Low difficulty.
b) BLUE Trail – 7km long, 650m altitude difference. Medium difficulty.
c) RED Trail – 11 km long, 900 meters difference in altitude High difficulty.
Scroll down for more specifics on the characteristics of the routes.
In case of bad weather the event will be postponed to Tuesday 25 April 2023.
The "Pro Pradipaldo" Association awaits you in the Pradipaldo Multipurpose Sports Center - the starting and registration point of your walk - located in the immediate vicinity of the 6th bend along the provincial road "Della Fratellanza".
- Registration will cost €4.00 for all participants over 12 years of age and will be free for children up to 12 years of age. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Emergency Fund (Save The Children).
- Registrations will be closed when 400 members are reached.
- Registration will open at 7.30 and will close at 10.00. Upon arrival of the walk, each participant will receive a sandwich and a drink.
- Along the routes, the participants will come across some refreshment points where they can refresh themselves with tea, water and snacks. In compliance with the health provisions, the glasses and food will be delivered to them by the service staff.
All marked trails will develop on dirt and in some places slippery terrain. It is recommended to face them with comfortable clothing and trekking shoes or boots. Recommended backpack in which to store any spare clothes and kway. The routes will be affected by a short crossing of the Provincial Road (the BLUE and the GREEN in their initial and final stretch, the RED in its initial stretch and in the locality of "Tortima").
Maximum attention and respect for the highway code are therefore recommended.
Surveillance and the "broom" service will be guaranteed along the route, until 12.30
Participants must comply with the health regulations in force at the time of the event.
The Organizing Committee declines any responsibility for damages or injuries suffered by the participants.
