Despite the Covid-19 uncertainty, the interest for the 2021 event is big
Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa open up for the sporty tourists
“Grand Classics Events” for a Marcialonga of even more prestige

As time passes and life starts getting back to normal also in the sports field, the organizers of big winter events are starting to work more on the future events, even if it is still hard to know how the containment policies will evolve. The Marcialonga Organizing Committee is positive about that and the 48th edition that will be held on January 31st is still fascinating the passionate Nordic skiers.
About 6500 bibs have been already booked so far, including 2000 bibs already purchased by Italian skiers, 2300 bibs booked by the Tour Operators and 1500 booked by the Friend Hotels of Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa. There is no need saying that the enthusiasm has not been the same as in the past years, seen the uncertainty given by the pandemic that is spread in the whole world, in Scandinavia too. Nevertheless, from the registration opening on June 3, around 700 new international skiers entered the race, leaving still some space to fill up the 1000 bibs put on sale by the Marcialonga O.C. As usual, the Visma Ski Classics skiers registrations are still missing together with the ones coming from other international partners, like Russialoppet.
Bookings need now to be confirmed and the Organizing Committee is under no illusion that the race will be sold out, even if numerous requests for clarification and bookings are coming in every day. It needs to be seen how the situation evolves, especially in countries like Sweden and Norway, two countries where most of the competitors came from in the past editions. The Organizing Committee has a steady eye on the containment policies and now, after the national borders opening, there is the feeling that the appeal of Marcialonga will overcome the actual unsecure situation. As of today, the full program is confirmed, but it might be affected by some changes according to the national regulations in effect.
The upcoming season is bringing also some news: Visma Ski Classics has inserted the Italian race to the new challenge “Grand Classics Events” together with Vasaloppet, Birkebeinerrennet and Jizerska Padesatka. This will bring even more prestige to the event that literally unites the two Valleys of Fiemme and Fassa with its 70km from Moena to Cavalese, involving the skiers within the beautiful scenarios of the Dolomites.
Registrations will close when the 1000 registrations will be reached and being 700 confirmed, about 300 skiers can still enter the race online. In the meantime, Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa represent a fascinating summer destination with its cycling path perfect to train on roller-skis, by bike or running to get ready for the long ski-marathon.
