MARCIALONGA – THE LONG MARCH INTO THE HEART AND SOUL OF EVERY SKIER
Marcialonga in Italy has twice been awarded as the “Event of the Year” in Ski Classics. The race was established in 1971 when some innovative Italians decided to copy the world-famous Vasaloppet and create their own version of the legend. Marcialonga has now reached the legendary status of its own as its unique atmosphere and the course that runs through small historic villages are the trademarks of the event attracting thousands of skiers every year.
The race starts in Moena, Val di Fassa, and finishes on the main street of Cavalese, Val di Fiemme, passing through 13 villages and thousands of cheering spectators.
Marcialonga is also the first of the Grand Classics events.
