5th July 2020 - A unique route of 175 Km, with no fewer than seven Dolomite passes to cross.
166 fearless spirits of the bicycle that with great courage and fair play struggle to reach the coveted finishing-line: this was how the fascinating adventure of the Maratona dles Dolomites
began, attracting year after year an increasing number of fans, to become one of the most important amateur cyclist events in the whole of Europe
. 2017 the race takes place on July 2th.
Conceived as part of the tenth anniversary celebrations of the Alta Badia-Raiffeisen Cycling Club, its organisers certainly never dreamt that they had created an event which in such a short period of time would have become one of the most important annual events in the Alta Badia valley, attracting thousands of fans, many of whom enthusiastically take part every year.
The great success of the Maratona dles Dolomites is certainly based on the splendid setting of the Dolomites
, the striking routes that follow legendary runs where great champions have written a rich and glorious page in the history of cycling.
The great organisational effort that involves a whole community with the specific aim of presenting a high level and smoothly organised competition capable of coordinating such a high number of competitors, must not be forgotten. One of the reasons for the great satisfaction that encourages us to continue despite all the difficulties, is the enthusiasm and friendship that we find in all the contestants, who every year create not only a competition but a celebration of sport, where it is especially the desire to prove oneself against the magnificent surrounding scenery that remains alive.
