Challenge Sanremo Swimrun: the first Memorial Alessio Bianchi will be held on 23 September

We know how much Alessio cared about this event and with how much dedication he was carrying out the preparations: this is one of the reasons why the Challenge Sanremo Swimrun on Friday 23 September will be named after Alessio Bianchi.

Athlete of Riviera Triathlon 1192, well known and appreciated in the Swimrun circuits of Italy and Europe, Alessio left us prematurely at the end of July, struck by an illness just as he was practicing the sport that so passionate him. As we have already underlined, Alessio will always swim and run next to us: he will always be one of us.

We remind you that there will be no funeral ceremonies, but the Swimrun race on the weekend of the Challenge Sanremo will represent the last farewell to Alessio.

We report the words of the family.

“We sincerely thank all the people who did their utmost to achieve this race that was Alessio’ s dream in record time. Thank you for your affection and all the warmth with which you are surrounding us which helps us to endure this infinite suffering … Thank you all, dear friends”.
