XIII traditional international Rostec Demino FIS/Worldloppet Ski Marathon 2020. Day 2.

29/10/2013 7500 skiers to race in Italy
Thousands of cross country skiing specialists and ski lovers will gather up amongst magnificent Dolomites at the end of next January. In 3 months time, Italy’s Marcialonga is getting back on track (Sunday 26 January, 2014) and it will be the 41st time in its history.

Next Marcialonga will welcome 7.500 skiers from all around the planet, entry limit was easily reached at the beginning of the summer and some legendary XC skiers registered as well as many pure ski lovers. Norway’s Bente Skari, Thomas Alsgaard and Terje Langli are among them, together with Olympic Champion Evgeniy Dementiev of Russia.

Marcialonga 2014 will be once again running on the two courses of 70 Km (starting from Moena and finishing in Cavalese) and 45 Km (the Marcialonga Light course from Moena to Predazzo), and is certainly the most popular ski-marathon in Italy (over 200.000 participants in its history including the 2013 race). It is part of the FIS Marathon Cup and the Ski Classics circuits, other than being founding member of the Worldloppet series, a family made of 16 long-distance races in Europe, America, Asia and Australia.

Marcialonga OC, presided by the newly elected president Mr. Angelo Corradini, set up the Marcialonga Story event, scheduled the day before the ski-marathon, and all participants will experience the true spirit of XC skiing, wearing original equipment (dated pre-1976) and racing an 11k competition from Lago di Tesero to Predazzo town centre. A Register of vintage cross-country skis has been created in order to collect information, data and pictures of skis crafted in different years, and is available on www.marcialonga.it. Entries are open and will close once the race limit of 300 has been reached.

Further side events will be taking place on Saturday 25 January at the XC stadium in Lago di Tesero, such as Minimarcialonga for kids, Marcialonga Young for young categories and Marcialonga Stars supporting the Italian Association against Cancer (Lega contro i Tumori).

The 2014 Marcialonga official opening ceremony will be held in Cavalese on Saturday 25 January.
