It is a traditional competition with the ancient crossbow from a position. The Balestrieri of Gubbio and those of Sansepolcro, wear the characteristic period costumes and meet every year in the exceptional scenery of Piazza Grande.

The competition consists in centering the "rate", a target placed 36 meters away and the crossbowman who manages to hit the nearest point in the center of the target receives as a reward the Palio, a valuable banner made each year by a well-known artist. During the event there is a virtuosic and spectacular performance of the flag-wavers. At the end of the event a historical parade winds through the streets of the city.
