The Marcialonga is an international classic style marathon competition that has taken place over the last 45 years on the last Sunday of January involving thousands of participants from over 20 different countries.
Both men and women take part, as long as they are in possession of the F.I.S.I. card and are over the age of 18 years. The registration process closes when the number of competitors reaches 6,500.
The competition takes place over a 70 km route which begins in Moena and ends in Cavalese. This route includes the ascent to Canazei, which competitors must reach by 12.30 before the gate closes, and the descent to Molina in order to return to and complete the competition in Cavalese.
This is a unique event which allows competitors to pass through the Fassa and Fiemme valleys, skiing along forests and rivers and perhaps more importantly, skiing against the backdrop of well-wishers who have turned out to encourage them along their way and wait for them.
The Marcialonga celebrates its 45th anniversary this year (2018). A special thank you goes out to the huge number of volunteers who, in each country of the two valleys, devote their time and efforts to the success of this event.

For those who prefer not to take part in the classic 70 km competition, there is the chance to try it out and experience the emotion through the shorter route which leaves from Moena at 8.15 am, goes up to Canazei and arrives in Predazzo. This shorter version also requires classic techniques and is open to all those over the age of 18 years and in possession of the F.I.S.I. card. The registration process closes when the number of competitors reaches 500.
