VIM Italian Endurance Championships 2023 Open in Castiglione del Lago

Castiglione del Lago, Umbria and Lake Trasimeno are once again protagonists thanks to the VIM Italian Endurance Championships 2023 Open, scheduled from 15 to 18 June in the former Eleuteri Airport area.

The best national endurance specialists, together with some of the major international riders, will compete along one of the most fascinating and historically rich tracks. What will be staged next June will in fact be the fifth edition of the tricolor review hosted on the shores of Trasimeno, after the appointments, all crowned with undeniable technical and organizational success, in 2004, 2005, 2014 and 2015. For this Castiglione del Lago deserves to all intents and purposes to be considered the “Italian capital of endurance”, a title it already earned in 2001 for having hosted a memorable edition of the European Open Championships.

Also this year all 12 Italian titles reserved for the Senior, Junior, Under 14 and Pony categories will be awarded in a single Endurance Lifestyle event, sponsored by the Umbria Region, the Province of Perugia, the Municipality of Castiglione del Lago, Tuoro sul Trasimeno and Cortona and supported by the GAL Trasimeno Orvietano.

The competitions will take place over three different days: Friday 16 June will be dedicated to the Italian Senior Championship, Saturday 17 June will be the turn of the Junior & Young Riders and Under 14 and Sunday 18 June will be reserved for the little ones with ponies.

In addition to the technical value, the VIM ItalianEndurance Championships 2023 Open will also be guaranteed further depth by a first-rate location. The race course that develops with departure and arrival from the Ex Eleuteri Airport inside the Trasimeno regional park has always been appreciated, in fact, for the quality of the surfaces and the soft altimetry of the course to the point of being considered one of the scenarios more suited to hosting top-level competitions.

The ambitious program of the VIM Italian Endurance Championships 2023 Open includes a series of relevant activities such as the Press Conference with a Focus on Sports Tourism at Palazzo della Corgna in Castiglione del Lago and the Endurance Gran Galà  – Serata del Gusto “Agro-food excellences of the Umbria” at Italia Endurance Stables & Academy.

The Umbria Endurance Lounge will also be set up in the Village in the area of the Ex Eleuteri Airport, which with its country-chic setting will promote the typical food and wine of Umbria to introduce local excellence to national and international guests.
