Maratona dles Dolomites
The world famous road bike marathon in the Dolomites with start and finish in Alta Badia
The Maratona dles Dolomites is a road-bike marathon in the Dolomites with start and finish in Alta Badia.
The first Maratona dles Dolomites event took place in 1987. 166 cyclists from Italy, Germany and Austria took part in the race.
The number of participants increased from year to year. In 1990 it was just under 1,000 participants, rising to just over 6,000 in the mid-1990s. Today the number has had to be limited to 9,000 enthusiastic cyclists who get the chance each year to take part in this unique and world famous marathon.
Just how remarkable this success story is can be seen from the fact that in 2014 there were over 31,000 applications from would-be participants!
