Starting today, until Sunday 30th of September, Finale Ligure plays host to an event that pays tribute to its natural vocation to the outdoors, thanks to a number of activities, competitions, contests and expo areas.
Finale Ligure is all geared up to welcome the general public, enthusiasts, athletes and professionals of the outdoor industry with its very own FLOW OUTDOOR FESTIVAL by VIBRAM. From Thursday 27 to Sunday 30 September, Finale gives you the opportunity to live first-hand an incredible experience in a unique region that from the Ligurian Sea stretches to the mountains and into an all-to-be-explored hinterland.
FLOW OUTDOOR FESTIVAL by VIBRAM takes place in collaboration with two major sporting events: the grand finale of the Enduro World Series and Finale For Nepal. The best athletes – in the mountain-biking and climbing international scene respectively – have already arrived in Finale, and they are now getting ready to focus all their energies on the competitions ahead.
Plenty of spectators will be cheering them on during competitions and contests, but not only, as FLOW by VIBRAM makes for a very special opportunity to get closer to the athletes just taking part to one of the many activities in schedule or simply bumping into them and getting a photo or an autograph. The event also boasts an expo area spread over two locations: the seaside promenade of Finalmarina and Finalborgo. There, visitors will find experts and professionals of all major outdoor manufacturers, happy to introduce their brands and all products of this season, beside making plenty of new gear available for testing.
