The Penna Trail Run, included in the 2022 calendar of the Tuscany region, is a competitive trail of about 33 km from the Serchio river to the peaks of the Monti Pisani.
The long route maintains the track of previous years, reaching the summit of Mount Moriglion di Penna from where it is possible to admire the entire plain of Lucca and the peak of Mount Faeta in front. The new short route partly follows the paths of the long one without passing through Monte Penna, suitable for those who do not want to face a demanding trail.
As every year, both routes start from the sports facilities in Molina di Quosa and end at the Rossini running club in Pappiana, about 2 km apart. The routes pass by historical places in our area such as Villa Poschi, the Rocca di Ripafratta and the La Romagna memorial. They are characterised by single tracks winding through chestnut and beech woods, wild undergrowth alternating with mountain roads.
