Among the hundreds of agonistic comeptitions that yearly take place in our region, the Giro Podistico di Trento, can pride its self for being the oldest. But other than being the most prestigious comeptition in the regional scene, with no doubt it enjoys the highest importance at the national level and much consideration even at the international one.

A great race then, whose orgins date back to the early 1900. It’s been in the 1907 that this unedited “run”, named “Giro di Trento”, to be run around the city roads for a length of about 6km, was bravely started by a sportive commettee charged to set with a big innovation the tradictional celebration after San Vigilio, protector of the city of Trento, at the time being part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. That inaugural edition quicly had a huge success both agonistic and in amusement, such to grab even for the following years the most awaited and important spot in the program set for the antique and tradictional celebration after San Vigilio.

For the records, that first edition was won by Isidoro Trenner, bearing the colors of the Unione Ginnastica Trentina, after a righteous disqualification of the venetian runner Domenico Gottin, guilty of having cut part of the race track, that starting from Via Santa Croce passed through the areas of Bolghera, Busa, Port’Aquila, Campotrentino and via Fondamentale (nowdays Corso Buonarrotti) to get back again on front of the old hospital, going through via Rosmini and via Tre Portoni. The editions of that race regularry took place up to 1914, the year when started the first world war that caused much harder issues for all humanity. As soon as that inhuman tragedy ended, the road running race soon took place again under the new name of “Giro al Sas” this after the urban path known with such a name and bordered by via Roma, via Oss Mazzurana, via Oriola, via San Pietro and again via Roma, to be run for more laps, this way giving to the many crowds of viewers the possibility to watch more times the emotional vicissitudes of the race, every time more honoured by the partecipation of national level champions. The race was interrupted again in 1940, because of the conflict that ended in 1945 and to underline the interest local sportsmen, it’s enough to say that the “Giro al Sas” was restarted in that same year. To be precise the first of november, the day of Ognissanti and the date of choice for many years, fot the disputation of this tradictional event, taking year after year a greater importance, also because of the constant partecipation of talented champions.

Comfirmation of this assertion comes from the prestigiouse golden book of the race filled by distinguished names of international running, but it comes also from the huge interest that this competition could create in the sportsmen of this region, always present, increasingly in number, to this yearly date of november first to witness the emotional and rich agonistic show.
