Cortina d'Ampezzo - Dobbiaco (Italy), Sunday 3 June 2012

Cortina Dobbiaco Run, downhill to Dobbiaco (Copyright © 2012 Hendrik Böttger,


With over 3500 finishers last year, the Cortina-Dobbiaco Run is the most popular running event in the Dolomites in northern Italy.

The race is a very scenic 30km point-to-point run on a disused railway track. The first half goes about 300 metres uphill, the second half around 300 metres downhill.

The start is in the upmarket ski resort of Cortina d'Ampezzo in the Veneto region.

The finish is in the village of Dobbiaco (German: Toblach) in the autonomous province of South Tyrol, where German is the predominant language.

Participants run through tunnels, across wooden bridges, and past alpine lakes, mostly on dirt roads and trails.

In 2011, the winners were Hicham El Barouki (1:36:31) and Eliana Patelli (1:53:45).
