The revival of cross-country skiing is back for the fifth time: it will take place on Saturday 28th January 2017, the day before the Marcialonga, so that all competitors who gather for the main race could have the possibility to join in this celebration of tradition.

The programme will see the start in Lago di Tesero, while the finish is settled in the main square of Predazzo, with the total length of 11 km. But do not expect to find any chemical integrator at the refreshment station, our fathers never found nor needed it.

All male and female skiers from 16 years old could participate, but be aware that equipment will be strictly supervised before the start.
The skis must be older than 1976 with bindings of 75mm and shoes, poles and cross-country skiing clothing corresponding to that period.

We had fun to interpret the cross-country skiing of the past, singing the folk '70s song La Marcialonga (video leght 3 minutes).

Do not forget to have a look at the photo album on the Vintage XC ski book, the gathering of old skis verified by a commission of expert. Maybe a look in your attic could bring you some surprise.
