24th EDITION

Favourable elevation profile, ideal road surface, car-free route, aid from start to finish. These are just some of the ingredients that, over the years, have contributed to making Padova a reference point for the Paralympic world.

And there was no lack of outstanding results: it suffices to say that four are the world records realized here by wheelchairs and blind and that among the stars that animated the race there are champions such as Francesca Porcellato, Andrea Cionna e Thomas Geierspichler, just to name a few.
