The Dolomites Skyrace is a spectacular up-and-down mountain race in northern Italy. Competitors run up to the summit of Piz Boè (3152m), the highest peak of the massive "Gruppo del Sella".

The start and finish are in the ski and holiday resort of Canazei (1450m), located in the Val di Fassa where most of the inhabitants speak Ladin as a first language.

The route is a 22-kilometre loop of trails, with 1750 metres of ascent and 1750 metres of descent.

Last year, the route was shortened due to snow and ice on parts of the course. The winners were Paolo Larger of Italy and Laetitia Roux of France.

The event forms part of the "SkyRunner World Series", which consists of sixteen highly challenging mountain running events in twelve countries.
