Everything about the Dolomitenlauf

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 six 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 we 30 worldclass sprinters are going to delight thousands of spectators from all over the world.


The Dolomitensprint is the king among cross-country sprints, the first of its kind and still one of the most difficult. Only those who have experienced it before can truly understand what happens each year in the specially erected arena .

The crowd buzzes with excitement when the 30 athletes – many of them world class sprinters – warm up for the race and the Dolomitenlauf torch is lit. The sprinters shoot out of the starting gates. A 7-metre high ramp with its downward starting curve, a jump to be taken at a full sprint pace and the hairpin bend just before the final sprint all have to be taken properly if a competitor wants to have any chance of winning.

Thirty years ago the Dolomite Sprint was the first race of its kind. Now, however, the sprint is an Olympic discipline and East Tyrol is still a hot spot for the fastest sprinters in the world. The six sprinters who have fought their way through the heats into the final then have to complete three 350-metre laps of the sprint arena in Obertillaich square. The starting shot from an old cannon and the rhythmical drums during the breaks also add to the unique atmosphere.
