On May 29th Marcialonga ‘Cycling’ Craft for élite and amateurs
Nineteen countries already registered
‘Ukraine Charity Loppet’: a sport event helping Ukraine
Virtual cycling, running, ski, rollerski and SkiErg


The tragic ongoing war in Ukraine got the world’s attention, and now everyone is willing to help. Marcialonga immediately welcomed the new raise-funding project “Ukraine Charity Loppet”, launched by Worldloppet, the international ski-marathon federation, whereof the Italian committee is also a member. A noble cause combined with the strong passion for sport gave birth to a virtual sport event, with the possibility to choose between cycling, cross-country skiing, running, roller skiing and SkiErg (a specific training practice for Nordic skiing). Until April 30th, registrations are open online on Marcialonga or Worldloppet websites. It is possible to choose the track of 42km (40€), 21 km (30€), 10 km (20€) and ‘open class’ (10€). The registration fee will be fully donated to the Ukrainian Red Cross. At the end of the ‘race’, it is possible to download each performance on smartphone or smartwatch. This virtual competition is open to everyone in the world. Together we are stronger: running, cycling, skiing or whatever, let’s stand for Ukraine!
Sunday May 29th, along the roads of Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa (Trentino, Italy), it is time for Marcialonga Cycling Craft, which presents itself with two possible tracks. The ‘Mediofondo’ track is 80km long with a difference in height of 2.488mt; the ‘Granfondo’ measures 135km with 3.900mt difference in height. The last one also includes the uphill to Passo San Pellegrino, which the bikers of the great race “Giro d’Italia” face the previous day.
Up to now, nineteen nations have already registered for the competition. It is the perfect occasion to book a nice holiday in one of the charming ‘Friend Hotels’ in Val di Fiemme or Val di Fassa. Registrations for the 14th edition are open, with the special price of 38€ until April 2nd. With spring upcoming, this part of Trentino is the perfect habitat for bike lovers.
