The next


    50 years of the Dolomitenlauf - with improvements


    On 19th January 2020, the Dolomitenlauf celebrates its 50th year and for the occasion the event will have new, added features. It is also accommodating the general trend toward classic cross-country skiing. As with the major, popular cross-country events in Worldloppet skiing, in 2020 the main race at the Dolomitenlauf will also be oriented toward classic style. And as if that were not enough, with a new route, the traditional race will once again head to the Dolomite town of Lienz and in so doing the sport will reach out to a wide range of people. The slope in Pustertal is predominantly on the Drau Cycle Path, which brings up to 5000 cyclists every day in the summer to Lienz. The starting point is set as Heinfels/Sillian, which is located very close to a federal railway station, with stops at several stations along the route to Lienz. This slope should be operational in December since artificial snow-making facilities are available. The aim is to provide a very well-tended slope throughout the winter from Lienz to the border of South Tyrol. This should provide the opportunity to ski on cross-country skis from the Dolomite town of Lienz, to the Olympic town of Cortina. In future all-comers ought to be able to tackle the classic style Dolomitenlauf!


    The 'free technique' Dolomitenlauf is due to be held in Obertilliach on the Saturday, and on the Friday evening the Dolomite Sprint is also on the timetable in the Biathlon centre. Another special feature will be the 'Romantiklauf' in Amlach on the Thursday. Thirty years ago this cross-country event by torchlight became a great tradition, with up to 300 participants heading to the start and it is regarded as a welcome event to numerous guests from across the globe.
