The folks at Alta Alpina have been working tirelessly to create a pandemic friendly event. According to the event producers — the size, location, and format of the Alta Alpina Challenge make it uniquely qualified to be adapted to a pandemic friendly event. New protocols and operational plans have been adapted for a COVID-19 Edition.
The route options and cut-off times will remain the same, and all riders and volunteers are required to practice social distancing and mask protocols.
One of the best things about this event is that each rider is challenged to set a personal goal based on his or her own individual abilities.
