Rigantoca is a non-competitive mountain march that goes from Righi (Genoa) to Caprile, under Mount Antola.
Rigantoca is a non-competitive mountain march organised by the CAI (Italian Alpine Club) of Sampierdarena since 2000.
The route, spanning 43.21km, winds through half-mountain trails and features an elevation gain of approximately 1950 metres uphill and 1200 metres downhill.
Its name comes from the combination of the initial letters of the three main locations along the route: Righi (the starting point located on the hills of Genoa), Antola (the summit of the mountain to reach), and Caprile (the destination, a small village at the foot of Mount Antola). Hence, the acronym Rig.Anto.Ca.
This is why it’s called the “march of the three colours“: green, representing the colors of the Antola meadows, and yellow and red, along with white in the background, reminiscent of the daffodils that grow in those meadows.
