Tesero (Italy), Sunday 30 June 2013
The Stava Skyrace is a highly challenging mountain running race that begins and ends in the resort of Tesero in the Val di Fiemme (Fiemme Valley) in the Dolomites in northern Italy.
The route is approximately 25 kilometres long. It includes more than 2,100 metres of ascent (and the same of descent). Most of the route is on mountain trails.
Participants need to be experienced and well-prepared mountain runners as parts of the race take place in a spectacular high-alpine environment.

During the race, all participants must carry a windbreaker jacket with them. The time limit to complete the course is five hours and a half.
Tesero is a popular hiking and winter sports destination. It is also well known for one of Italy's worst industrial disasters. In 1985, 268 people died when a mining dam collapsed near the village of Stava, situated about three kilometres from Tesero.
