Scarpa sponsored a special new 46.5-kilometer trail-running race through the slopes of Monte Grappa and neighboring hills in the Veneto region of Italy last month. Called Trail degli Eroi – Trofeo Scarpa (Heroes Trail – Scarpa Trophy), it involved about 300 participants and commemorated the death of 12,000 people in one of the fiercest battles between Italy and Austria during World War I. The organizers would like to see strong foreign participation in future editions of the event over the next years.
