The ninth edition of The North Face® Lavaredo Ultra Trail will start from the center of Cortina. On the evening of Friday, June 26, 2015, Corso Italia will glow with hundreds of headlamps that will guide the athletes in their first few miles of running at night. They will come from all over the world for this incredible race that embrace the most spectacular places of the Dolomites: the Cristallo, the Tofane, Cinque Torri, and of course the Tre Cime. A long journey on foot which will involve important athletes who cross the finish line in 12 hours, and fans who will have 30 hours of time to get back to Cortina.
Shorter trail starting on Saturday morning from Corso Italia in Cortina. The 1000 competitors will have 12 hours of time to cover the circular circuit, which will follow the first 10 and last 37 km of the longer LUT path. A race for those who want to "break through" the wall of the 42 km classic marathon distance; a race to make closer to the mountain, and to the Dolomites, the trail running enthusiasts.
The Cortina Skyrace departs and arrives from the center of Cortina and allows you to discover from high altitude the entire Ampezzo valley all along its twenty kilometers of length and a thousand meters of elevation gain. Fork Zumeles, the highest point of the route, must be won by climbing steep grassy and rocky slopes, but gives a fantastic view of Cortina and the mountains that surround it: Cristallo, Tofane, Cinque Torri, up to Pelmo, Civetta and Marmolada.
