The classic race of 42km follows the former railway, the so called “Ferrovia delle Dolomiti” and is unique in its style, passing through two illuminated galleries in the middle of the UNESCO Natural World Heritage. The traditional track has been changed for 46° edition: the start is in Landro at the foot of the Three Peaks direction Toblach, from there it descends to the Lake of Toblach, 1.5 km from the Nordic Arena, then turns back to the War cemetery, Landro Lake, the Viewpoint of the Three Peaks and Carbonin. Pass Cimabanche is the highest point of the course. From there the track goes downwards to Ospitale and finally finishes at Cortina d’Ampezzo town center – bus station area.
Since 2020 the direction of the skating race goes also from Toblach to Cortina d’Ampezzo, and on the 5th of February 2023 the skating race will be 42 km. long, the exact same track as the classic race for skating skiers as well.
New challenges for those who can’t get enough of cross-country skiing, the most passionate who participate in the two races: with themselves, with the other participants and now to ski the two techniques on the same track!
