Everything about the Dolomitenlauf

From 18th to 21st January 2018 will be hosting the 44th International Dolomitenlauf and its many side events.

The Dolomitenlauf is Austria’s largest and most important  cross-country skiing event which is based on an unique concept. “Regardless you’re  professional, amateur or hobby skier – the Dolomitenlauf in the middle of our beautiful Dolomites is the perfect competition for everyone”, says Franz Theurl,  president of the organising Club, by describing this highlight of the Nordic skiing calendar in East Tyrol.

A total of seven different races with different levels in distance and difficulties are offered during the four-day event to our friends of cross-country skiing.  Apart from  the main competitions, the classicrace on Saturday and the Dolomitenlauf ski marathon on Sunday you shouldn´t miss to watch the Dolomitensprint on Friday evening in the center of Lienz where 30 worldclass sprinters are going to delight thousands of spectators from all over the world.

Guaranteed snow on the trails in Obertilliach, more than 300 volunteers and a perfect organization make sure that the cross-country skiing weekend in Lienz is going to be a winter highlight for thousands of athletes and tenthousands of spectators.
