To celebrate its 40 editions - some done with luck, some only with the tenacity of the organisers, but most of them revealing a great success of participation and sport enthusiasm that has brought this Italian race to become worldwide known through the years -, a revival of cross-country skiing will be organised on Saturday 26th January 2013, 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.
Not to be forgotten that in the same year and precisely at the end of February, Val di Fiemme will host for the third time the Nordic Ski World Championships.
A winter that will see here in Trentino many important sport events that cannot be missed.
The programme will see the start in Lago di Tesero, with a check of the equipment that must be older than 1976, bindings of 75mm, shoes and poles of the time. 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 entering the start gate.
And do not forget to have a look at the photo album on the Vintage XC ski book on the web, maybe a look in your attic could bring you some surprise.
