Cortina d'Ampezzo - Dobbiaco (Italy), Sunday 30 May 2010
The route runs through the Valle di Landro.
This 30k point-to-point race travels through the breathtaking landscape of the Eastern Dolomites in the far north of Italy. The route runs almost entirely on dirt roads and trails along a disused railway line.
Participants run through tunnels and gorges, across wooden bridges and past alpine lakes. The jagged rocks of the Sexten Dolomites, notably the famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Drei Zinnen), provide a dramatic backdrop.
The start is in the upmarket ski resort of Cortina d'Ampezzo (1211m), the "Queen of the Dolomites". The first 14 kilometres are run uphill. The highest point on the course is at the Cimabanche Pass (1530m). From there, it's mostly downhill to the finish at the Grand Hotel in Dobbiaco (1210m) in South Tyrol.
The event also features a highly popular non-competitive run (11.5km) which starts en route at Lago di Landro (Lake Landro).
In 2009, over 2800 runners finished the 30k race. The winners were Said Boudalia (1:38:52) and Giovanna Ricotta (1:57:02).
