The SAT500 route of Monte di Mezzocorona is particularly suited for attempting to break the world uphill running record as it has an elevation gain of 640 meters and is perfectly connected to the cable car, which can be used for a quick descent. The goal of athletes aiming to break this record is to complete as many ascents as possible in 24 hours without stopping.

Record-holding athletes:
2016: Jimmy Pellegrini 20,416 meters
2017: Andrea Daprai 20,550 meters
2019: Manuel Degasperi 20,865 meters
2020: Daniele Cappelletti 21,723 meters


2024: For the “Tagliato per vivere” project, amputee athlete Alessandro Colombo completed the elevation gain of 8,848 meters, representing the height of Everest, the tallest peak in the world. To achieve this, he ascended the SAT500 trail 14 times so that the sum of the positive elevation gain reached 8,848 meters.
