MARCIALONGA PROJECTS: LEGENDS AND EXPERIENCE

News date20.01.2017

Marcialonga is not just a race, not only Italy's most popular ski-marathon. The heart of Marcialonga is full of love and solidarity, other than fun and sport. In less than ten days, almost 8,000 snow lovers and XC skiing athletes will join the 44th running of the long distance race in Italy's Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa, and the local OC has developed a couple of interesting projects aiming at making people become part of the event while exploring multiple perspectives of the Marcialonga world.
Marcialonga Legends narrates the 43 races the so-called 'Senators' have taken part into so far. It might be viewed as a photographic journey throughout the years and through the faces of who never missed the notorious winter XC skiing granfondo. Every thursday one of the senators tells his personal story on the  Marcialonga website and official Facebook page. Unreleased interviews plus unpublished stories in order to make everyone see what Marcialonga was and has become since the debut in 1971, and after 2.848 overall  kilometers of incredible fun, physical effort, friendship, passion and much, much more.
Marcialonga has always been into charity and helping others, and the Experience project aims to help Alex Zanardi's Association named 'Bimbingamba'. Ten famous people coming from politics, showbusiness, sport or economics will form a couple with ten Marcialonga Senators and they will take part into one of the Marcialonga events during the last weekend of January. Marcialonga Stars (3k-long promo event wearing skis or snow shoes), Marcialonga Story (a vintage event in original outfits and equipments dated before 1976), Sunday's ski-marathon or the 33k long Light version. Race times of each couple will go to a special standings and the winners will get a money award that will be donated to Zanardi's Association and the ex-Formula 1 driver and paracyclist will personally receive the prize during the next Marcialonga Cycling Craft event on 4 June 2017.
Those who want to tell their own story about Marcialonga, their own experience sliding on the Italian snow at the foot of stunning Dolomites, might use the #storiedimarcialonga and let the entire world know what Marcialonga means to them.
Less than ten days left to the 44th Marcialonga, next 29th January. The clock keeps ticking.
