12thJune2021Trail Running in the Dolomites


02/01/21 - 31/05/21

Waiting is growing for the 3rd edition of the Dolomites Saslong Half Marathon. It will be a 'half marathon' with the flavour of rebirth and will have the task of making people forget the forced cancellation of the 2020 edition due to the pandemic. The ingredients for the success of the event, as in previous seasons, are all there, starting with the great enthusiasm of the organising committee ASV Gherdeina Runners, which aims to reconfirm the appreciation obtained in the past.

The athletes will have the opportunity to face off against each other on the 21 km with 900 metres of altitude difference, which will characterise a very demanding route with no asphalted stretches, 50% of which will be on paths and the remaining 50% on gravel and rocky trails. The runners will be greeted - as the name of the event itself suggests - by the imposing peaks of the Dolomites, which are part of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage, and which dominate the Gardena area, from the Sassolungo to the Sella Group, with the Sciliar Massif and the Alpe di Siusi seemingly in their grasp. Fans who come to run in Val Gardena will be offered a unique panorama.

The health of the athletes and their companions will certainly be given special attention, and the organisation will take all the appropriate safety measures in accordance with the regulations in force at the time of the event.

The desire to return to normality is great, and a first step could be the choice to take part in the Dolomites Saslong Half Marathon, which will offer breathtaking views and an exciting weekend immersed in the mountain spectacle of Val Gardena.
