As the water droplets gather to reform the compact power of a waterfall, in the same way the components of one of the most difficult ultra trail races in the world will be reunited to give life, from 11 to 18 September 2016, to a new and unique show: Tor des Géants® 2016.
Ferrino will be again present on the Tor’s trails to give his contribution on athletes’ support and assistance. The presence of Ferrino on this race, that requires a lot of preparation – both from the athletes than from the organization – will mainly consist on the provision of technical equipment: beds for athletes’ rest in base camps and twelve person tents to accommodate the trailers along the path. Many camps will also be set up to help competitors during the most difficult parts of the race and tents and sleeping bags will be provided to volunteers who will be on the track to follow the “Géants” and ensure them the necessary support.
Ferrino’s relationship with the Trail Running world has intensified over the years with the development of the Trail line, focused on the creation of clothing and backpacks tested by athletes during unique opportunities as Tor des Géants®: this year the opinions of “giants” Ferrino will be the first to be heard.
Enrico Viola, a true artist of long runs, arrived 14th in his last edition of Tor, and Paolo Gregorini back in the Aosta Valley after the competition in 2015, will give their contribution directly form the race. In addition, key contributions will come from Cristian Caselli, whose recent love for the Ultra Trail races already produced significant results, and Marco Berni and Luisa Balsamo who express their passion for the outdoor in extreme environments such as Alaska and African deserts.
