Cortina d'Ampezzo - Dobbiaco (Italy), Sunday 5 June 2011
Over 3000 runners took part in last year's 30k Cortina Dobbiaco Run, which follows a disused railway track through the Eastern Dolomites in the far north of Italy.
Participants run through tunnels and gorges, across wooden bridges, and past alpine lakes, mostly on dirt roads and trails.
The start is in the upmarket ski resort of Cortina d'Ampezzo (1211m), the "Queen of the Dolomites". The first 14 kilometres go gradually uphill. The highest point on the course is at the Cimabanche Pass (1530m). From there, it's mostly downhill to the finish in Dobbiaco (1210m).
In 2010, the winners were Said Boudalia (1:37:51) and Paola Mariotti (1:58:23).
