A Corsa di l’Oriente is now well established in the island’s sporting landscape. Every year, since 2003, it brings together the best island trail specialists who explain themselves on this very technical trail. Most of the participants come from the island’s athletic clubs, as well as individual island runners. It has been part of the regional challenge Muntagne Corse-Alte Strade for several years now.
Building on the success of the 15th edition, with more than 250 participants, we hope in the coming years to open the event to the outside world, and thus broaden its participation beyond our mountains.
For this 2018 edition, we have included the race in the main online calendars of the discipline in order to make the race better known.
And above all, we are pleased to announce that A Corsa di l’Oriente is now part of the Skyrunner National Series (SNS). This renowned challenge proposes technical courses, a discovery of the most beautiful French mountains with exceptional atmospheres and human-sized racing organizations. The objective of the Skyrunner National Series is to be able to classify the best riders in the specialty.
