The Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel is a unique event dedicated to the celebration of cycling and offers the opportunity to climb, on a single day, some of the most celebrated mountain passes that have featured in the Giro d'Italia. The event attracts over 25 thousand participants a year of which nine thousand get the privilege of enjoying one of the most dramatic mountain scener in Europe totally free of motorised traffic.

The Maratona is an ideal event for riders of different fitness level but with the same passion to climb mountains with three distances to choose from (55km, 106km or 138km). Regardless of your choice all three courses go over the Campolongo, Pordoi, Sella and Gardena – covering a minimum of 55kms and 1780 meters of climbing. The frequent feeding stations have choices of sweet and savoury treats as well as water and energy drinks. The organisation of this event is second to none with even helicopters on standby for any medical eventuality. Last year’s high temperatures added an extra challenge when climbing the magnificent Passo Giau and made its descent a pure joy to behold.

With 3 Days before the event you will have the opportunity to make the most of an incredible atmosphere and set off to explore the Dolomites and join event-specific rides with special guests. From Thursday 4th of July, the “Maratona Village” in San Leonardo welcomes riders from all corners of the world, distributes race numbers and welcome packages, and showcases the latest trends in cycling wear and Italian cycling fashion.
