Salomon is the organizer of the Golden Trail and for the Grand Finale of Il Golfo dell'Isola it will have the support of Trio Events (already known for the famous Swimtheisland swimming competition). As always, the international sponsors of the event will be numerous, but much space will be given to national and local sponsors.
At the starting line the big names of the trail will present themselves with all the other athletes, with simple enthusiasts and with those who want to live an unforgettable experience.
This format and the walking along the paths overlooking the crystalline sea of the Gulf of the Island will be two unique and characterizing elements of great emotional impact.
This result rewards the willingness to believe in an area tourism promotion project such as the one launched between the Municipalities of Bergeggi, Noli, Spotorno and Vezzi Portio which, in terms of tourism, present themselves with the destination brand "Il Golfo dell'Isola" .
The awareness that this territory and its community has what it takes to make an important leap in quality in showing itself with its values and its beauties to the attention of national and international visitors, is the trigger.
But this is just the start, the rest will be the great challenge of involving everyone in expressing the best resources and true treasures of the area by placing them as a common factor in a large tourist showcase like "The Gulf of the Island" wants to be.
