When you hear “skyrunning,” you immediately think Trofeo Kima. Since 1995, the route that winds between ridges and moraines along the seven passes of Val Masino has become the international symbol of this discipline. Over 52 km with 8,400 m of total elevation difference, the specialists fight for the title of best in the world. A real battle amid the panoramas of the “European Yosemite,” made up of extremely technical sections, bruised legs, and tense but happy looks.
A world-class race with world-class athletes. This is immediately clear if you reread the names of those who’ve earned their place on the list of winners over the years — from Fabio Meraldi to His Majesty Kilian Jornet in the men’s field, and from Hillary Gerardi to Corinne Favre among the women.
For many, Trofeo Kima is the race of their dreams: being able to wear one of the 300 available start numbers already means being part of the elite. For the fans who cheer on the athletes, climbing up to almost 3,000 m elevation, it’s the call of passion, of the landscape that stands out above Sondrio, of the contrast between the whiteness of the rock and the clear blue of the late-August sky.
Created by a group of friends to commemorate their friend and mountain rescuer Pierangelo Marchetti, known as “Kima,” the main route has been joined over the years by three shorter versions to allow even children to experience parts of the Sentiero Roma — with the dream of one day running alongside the greats of skyrunning.


52 km
4200 m elevation gain

The route of the most iconic skyrunning race features a long loop that starts and finishes at the Centro Polifunzionale della Montagna. Trofeo Kima puts you to the test right away: 15 km and 2,000 m of pure climbing until you reach Bocchetta Roma, killing your legs. Shortly after, Passo Cameraccio (2,950 m): the highest point, where it’s hard to breathe and you pass above the clouds. The second part goes back and forth between the ridges of Val Masino, where fixed ropes guide the participants, helping to preserve your quads for the long final descent from Rifugio Gianetti. It’s at altitude that the race is decided.


27,5 km
1.890 m elevation gain

Not an ordinary skyrunning race. Retracing the final part of the elevation profile of the original route, the Kima Extreme Skyrace® includes an initial ramp up to Rifugio Gianetti, followed by a descent to Filorera. The course record, under three hours, demonstrates the extremely high technical level of the field.

14 km
300 m elevation gain

A small taste of the queen race, with a stretch through the woods and trails of Val di Mello. Kima Trail Running is the fastest race of all the options, but this doesn’t make it any less fascinating. It’s aimed at allowing young trail-running talents to demonstrate their abilities on a very scenic route.

The mini version of the Kima is designed to offer a first racing experience to enthusiasts who are just starting trail running, as well as to children.
