A dream 100 km long… Tuscany Crossing Valdorcia.

Lost Worlds Trail proposes ultra-races of 100km in some of the most extraordinary UNESCO SITES, one of these unique places is Val d’Orcia with its unbelievable landscapes.

The course relives the journeys of pilgrims that for centuries traveled this land that in Roman times connected Rome with the rest of its empire via the Romea, Cassia and Francigena roads. Val d’Orcia is rich with castles, fortifications and medieval churches where travelers, pilgrims, warriors and important individuals such as Sigerico bishop of Canterbury found refuge. To run the Tuscany Crossing 100 km is like running in the footsteps of these ancients travelers.

The race starts on the 23 April 2016 at 6 am. As the ancient travelers, you will pass through woods, fords, vineyards treading and white roads. Once you reach Bagno Vignoni with its water plaza, Pienza, the city of popes, San Quirico d’Orcia, Montalcino, the homeland of Brunello wine, you’ll wade across the Orcia river and you will be only halfway; Sant’Antimo Abbey, Castelnuovo Abate and the long uphill to the Vivo d’Orcia with its fresh springs and its magical wood will be waiting for you before your arrival at Castiglione d’Orcia.
