Its History

12th July 1987 - A unique route of 175 Km, with no fewer than seven Dolomite passes to cross; 166 fearless spirits who, with great courage and fair play, struggled to reach the coveted finishing-line: this was how the fascinating adventure of the Maratona dles Dolomites began, attracting year after year an increasing number of fans, to become one of the most important amateur cyclist events in the whole of Europe. Conceived as part of the tenth anniversary celebrations of the Alta Badia-Raiffeisen Cycling Club, its organisers certainly never dreamt that they had created an event which in such a short period of time would have become one of the most important annual events in the Alta Badia valley, attracting thousands of fans, many of whom enthusiastically take part every year.
The great success of the Maratona dles Dolomites is certainly based on the splendid setting of the Dolomites, the striking routes that follow legendary runs where great champions have written a rich and glorious page in the history of cycling.
