Lacing up a pair of trainers and heading out on a run is the best way to get out and experience the stunning scenery of Sardinia. From the coastal cliffs and beaches to the rugged mountains of the island’s interior, there are plenty of incredible sights to see. Running allows you to get out, breathe the fresh air and cross from one of these magnificent landscapes to the next.
Best time to climb:
April to November, but some guides offer trips year-round
How to get there:
Most trips to Sardinia will begin with a flight into Cagliari Elmas Airport (CAG), Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport (OLB) or Alghero–Fertilia Airport (AHO). From any of these airports, it is easiest to rent a car and drive to the start of your trip
What’s the weather like?
Sardinia has ideal weather for trail running. During the spring and autumn, average daily temperatures range from 15 ºC to 20 ºC. During the summer, temperatures rise to 25 ºC. Rain is most frequent in the spring and autumn, but not much rain falls throughout the year
Sitting in the Mediterranean Sea – just to the north of Tunisia, south of Corsica and west of the Italian peninsula – Sardinia is the second largest island in the sea. With an area of 24,090 square kilometers, there is plenty here to explore. Away from the famed Selvaggio Blu tour, there are plenty of other great trail running options as well. For those looking for a real challenge, the 5-day “Secret Mountain Trek” is just the thing. Winding through the Supramonte mountain range, on the east of the island, the trek heads through isolated valleys and over pristine mountain passes, providing great views and a real challenge for seasoned runners. For those looking for something just a little bit more relaxed, the 3-day Miniere nel Blu trek is a great option for taking on a bit mro of a relaxing run. Enjoy great scenery, visit pristine coastal cities in the island;s southwest and really enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle for a few days
