- Sportarena Lienzer Dolomiten


Since the 1970s, Obertilliach has become a substitute venue for the traditional and world-famous Dolomitenlauf. Last continuously from 2010 to 2019. The 50th anniversary of the Dolomitenlauf was celebrated with the finish on the main square in Lienz. Now, in 2022, the Dolomitenlauf will once again take place in Obertilliach. The clubs and the entire village community in the Tyrolean Lesachtal are behind the sporting event and therefore we can count on broad support from the population. The expanded biathlon centre in Obertilliach also offers a perfect infrastructure for this major international event, which has been anchored in the Worldloppet since 1978.


The Dolomitenlauf can always welcome more than 80 percent of international participants at the start. This will probably not be the case on 22 and 23 January 2022, because some of the overseas guests - due to Covid19 - will not be able to make the journey. Nevertheless, it is hoped that a good 1000 participants will take part, including numerous top athletes. 

The organisers are also hoping for many participants due to the recent boom in cross-country skiing among the local population in Osttirol. Recently, the LRC was able to inspire more than 150 beginners to take up the sport. But also in the valleys, the number of cross-country skiing enthusiasts has more than tripled since the past few years. This leads us to expect that many people from Osttirol will also take part in the Dolomitenlauf 2022, at least over the short distance of 20 km.

According to the current Covid regulations, outdoor events can be hosted for up to 500 participants with 2G control and allocated seating or, in the case of the Dolomitenlauf, starting places. The biathlon centre in Obertilliach is prepared for this and can already refer to corresponding experience. For example, the Junior Biathlon World Championships and most recently an Austria Cup were organised with tight controls.
