After the disappointments of 2020 linked to the pandemic, with only four of the numerous races organized up and down the Lario actually held, the Spartacus Triathlon Lecco of president Renzo Straniero is ready to get back on the road to give all athletes a new year full of appointments, Covid permitting.
Ten appointments set in the calendar by the Larian association, six in our territory and four between Elba Island and Lake Idro, demonstrating a well-established organizational capacity over the years that has led the Spartacus events to be among the most popular throughout the national sports field. Unlike in previous years, in January the trails of Annone Brianza and Oggiono will not be run, two now fixed appointments to baptize the new sporting season in the Brianza area of Lecco, but inevitably canceled for this 2021 by the protracted health emergency. The first event scheduled will therefore be the Duathlon of Barzanò, set for Sunday 28 February, which this year became part of the prestigious Fitri circuit which collects the five most beautiful duathlon races, alternating between running and cycling. of twists in the fight for victory.
Seven days later, here is the fascinating Lecco Half Marathon City, a race that in 2020 could not be run either in its standard setting nor in the one rescheduled for autumn. 21 kilometers and a little more in the heart of the Manzoni city that each time attract hundreds of athletes from all over Italy, and beyond, to Lecco to admire the local beauties and run on the beautiful lakefront. The months of April and May will see the organizing team busy away from the Lario, then on Saturday 19 June the most awaited event, the Lecco Marathon, a race that has been re-proposed after several years of absence and which for the occasion will be run in a night version. On Sunday 4th July all back on the Lecco lakeside for the start of the Triathlon Sprint Città di Lecco, a now historic event which saw the first edition in 2000 and which also awarded the Italian specialty titles four times.
On Sunday 18 July the branch of the Lario will be changed for the only event in the province of Como, the Cernobbio Sprint Triathlon. Grand closing on Sunday 5th September with another sprint triathlon, in Valmadrera.
