Saturday 29/07 took place the opening ceremony with the parade of the 35 nations present at the event. The ceremony was attended by the Deputy Mayor of Premana Domenico Pomoni, Federal Councillor Sabrina Fraccaroli, WMRA President Bruno Gozzelino, IAAF representative Carlos Cardoso and Gianni Mauri of FIDAL Lombardia; here are some words extrapolated from the speeches of the authorities present at the event:
“The day will be historic for our country, our small and isolated Premana is the center of the world of mountain running. It is a great honor to be able to host the strongest athletes in the world, knowing that everything was born from a group of ten friends, and then involved the whole country”.

Sunday 30/07 at the start of the races, with the first challenges of the World Mountain Running Championships now in its 33rd edition, while next week, Sunday 06/08, we get to the heart with the Giir di Mont, now in its 25th edition.

The trademark of the small Lecco village of Premana is therefore work, the people here never spare themselves, striving with passion all together, with a spirit of sacrifice that is rarely seen, and the 500 volunteers make this village lost in the mountains the flagship and “the kingdom of mountain running”. So much so that the slogan of the World Championships is: “Every athlete in Premana is a protagonist!”, always a peculiarity of the Giir di Mont, the leitmotif of this “world edition”, staged on the paths of the Premana mountain pastures until August 6th.
