I was asked: “Why do you run?” – I answered: “Why don’t you?” ~Jeremy Wariner


After cross country skiing (Marcialonga skiing) and cycling (Marcialonga Cycling Craft) races, the valleys of Fiemme and Fassa (Italy) will host a spectacular and exciting running event, characterised by joy and serenity, i.e. the feelings that participants in Marcialonga Running Coop will certainly experience.
Next 3rd of April entries for the third Marcialonga event of the year will open with the entry fee fixed at 30 EUR. The event will be rich of novelties, starting from the relay race with 3 competitors, conceived by organisers to celebrate its 15th anniversary. The first competitor will start from Moena, the “Fairy queen of the Dolomites” and pass the baton to the second one in Predazzo, after 10 km. The second competitor will pass the baton to the third in Lago di Tesero after 18 km and the third will reach the finish line in Cavalese after the last, most demanding, eight kilometres.
The organising committee has always attached great importance to solidarity and it collaborates with a non-profit organisation called Sport Senza Frontiere Onlus, which organises free sports events for children with disabilities, with the help of a team of qualified experts and the support of a network of sports associations and healthcare providers. The partnership will be presented on Saturday, 1st of April in Milan, and on the following day 2 “SSF-Marcialonga Teams” will take part in the relay race of Milano Marathon. The teams will be formed by Sara Deflorian, Paolo Dellantonio, Barbara Vanzo, Giorgio Dellantonio (Team1) and Alessandro Betta, Michele Malfer, Elisa Zardi and Massimo Leonardi (Team2), the latter being a former winner of the 7th Marcialonga Running Coop.
The ambitious goal of the Charity Partner of the Marathon is having 120 relay teams and 20 marathon runners (for a total of 500 people) running for Sport Senza Frontiere Onlus, thus supporting the fund-raising initiative. Marcialonga always goes hand in hand with solidarity and is always ready to help the less fortunate and athletes.
People take part in the Running Coop for passion, to spend a “running” Sunday in the beautiful landscape of Fiemme and Fassa and obviously to… win, trying to be the “heirs to the throne” of the two unbeatable runners from Kenya who won last year, i.e. Philimon Kipkorir Maritim and Viola Jelagat, who are also part of a social project (Run2gether). They dominated last year’s race and literally disintegrated previous records on the 26-km course from Moena in Val di Fassa, to Cavalese in Val di Fiemme. The event will also include the Minirunning, for young runners and the children of senior competitors. Marcialonga Running Coop has everything it takes to be a successful event once again. For the first 200 entries there is also a Mizuno neck warmer, so what are you waiting for? Time is running out…
