Restrictions allows runners to the Marcialonga Coop

On 5th September, the 19th edition of the popular run from Moena to Cavalese

26 km lost in nature, along the cycling-walking path

Champions and running-lovers, a race open to anyone, also as a relay

 

Covid restrictions tighten day by day, but luckly, the runners at the Marcialonga Running Coop are not required with the vaccine certificate.

Rules allow them to sign-up for the 19th edition of the 5th September without the Green Pass. Anyway, common rules apply: you must wear a mask for the first 500 meters, fill in the anti-Covid form and… have muscles and resistance to fight 26 km, most of them descending or slight slope and the few last ones going up, just in order to light up the last strides. As a matter of fact, Marcialonga Running has always been like this: there are no bigger changes this year, apart from the arriving in Viale Mendini, Cavalese, in order to avoid the limited pedestrian area of Via Bronzetti, with larger spaces and to resemble the arrival (even though vice versa) of the Winter race. There will also be a new stretch from Predazzo to Ziano, on the cyclo-walking path, which will surely create more pathos.

The intermediate passage of the half-marathon in Masi di Cavalese is also important to those who usually race: it represents a typical distance for many runners, far before the beginning of the descending to the arrival in Cavalese.

The starting line is back in the main centre of Moena. The first days of September represent a pleasing scenery, due to the fascinating Dolomites; with a perfect cool breeze for running and most of all, with the characteristic atmosphere created by Marcialonga, build up throughout the valleys of Fiemme and Fassa, thanks to many volunteers.

Those who are not long-distance runners can always sign-up for the relay race, which also has a charitable aim. The three segments are of 8, 10 and 8 km, from Moena to the Olympic Ski Jumping Stadium in Predazzo, to the Olympic Cross-country Stadium in Lago di Tesero, finally arriving in Cavalese.

Marcialonga Running Coop is a typical race for either amateurs or running-lovers, but someone also look for celebrity and satisfaction, aiming at winning a renowned race. Year after year, Italian and international names have been written on the Roll of Honor. The Gambian Ousman Jaiteh, first place in 2018 and second place in 2019, is one of them. He plays an important role in running history; he arrived in Italy with one of the many boats bringing refugees to our shores, finding home and a job in Valsugana. Covid made him stop running, but Marcialonga’s echo is loud and he is now training to come back.

A new set of podiums would be another great story to tell. Matteo Vecchietti, winner of the Primiero Dolomiti Marathon one month ago is ready but not alone: along with him, there is Ismail El Haissoufi, 5° place last year and also Peter Lanziner, very attached to Marcialonga races: 3°, 4° and 5° at the Running, also ranking in the Cycling Craft and in the ski race. It is known, the ones who count are the last to sign-up, as the athletes from the great African highlands.

For women, Ivana Lozzia does not hide her ambitions: her palmares shows two 1° places, a 2° and a 3° place.

Loretta Bettin, 3° place in 2019, also confirmed.

The many participants from the past editions confirm how Marcialonga Running Coop is a race open to anyone. There are a good number of relay teams and cross-country skiers racing along the three segments. There are two very young cross-country skiers born in 1999: Caterina Piller and Mara Gentile, but also “consumed” runners…under 80, Nicola Binelli born in 1943 and Liudmila Kolobanova born in 1944.
