Cortina d'Ampezzo - Dobbiaco (Toblach), Italy, Sunday 5 June 2016
The Cortina Dobbiaco Run features an immensely scenic 30km point-to-point route along a disused railway track through the Dolomites in northern Italy.
For the most part, the race is run on gravel roads and trails. The first half is uphill (ca. 320m of elevation gain) and the second half is downhill (ca. 320m of elevation loss).
Starting in the ski resort of Cortina d'Ampezzo in the Veneto region, the route runs through tunnels, across wooden bridges and past alpine lakes.
The finish line is in the village of Dobbiaco (German: Toblach) in the autonomous province of South Tyrol, where most people speak German as a first language.
More than 4,700 runners took part in last year's Cortina Dobbiaco Run.
