Another one Marcialonga 2023: Story by night and 50x50
Registrations open for the two vintage events
11th Marcialonga Story by night on Friday
50x50 with 1970s equipment and clothes on Sunday

Years go by but Marcialonga is always charming. The history itself behind the Italian ski-marathon represents its true worth, on January 29th takes place the 50th edition, a special one for Fiemme and Fassa valleys and cross-country skiers from all over the world. A blast from the past, when in 1971 a thousand skiers were making history with the very first edition of Marcialonga.
Marcialonga Story turns up on Friday with its new “by night” version, starting from the Cross-Country Stadium in Lago di Tesero at 4.30 pm and finishing as the sun sets in the heart of Predazzo, Piazza SS. Apostoli. 11 km for the 11th edition of the coolest ‘70s parade: pre 1976 skis, 75 mm ski bindings with clothes and shoes from those years. Skiing backwards on Marcialonga’s track, a little stop for a quick “selfie” then another one for Nele in Ziano di Fiemme until the finish line in Predazzo, lighted by torches and warmed by the audience.
A travel back in time to 1970s that keeps on going on Sunday with Marcialonga 50x50, the new collateral event for 50 “fearless heroes” skiing on the 70km-track, Mur de la Stria included, with equipment and clothes from the first edition (or previous years). A real and appealing flashback, when 50 skiers will be ready at 7 am with their wood skis and bamboo poles, just one hour before Ski Classics elite athletes equipped with the most modern and latest technologies. Marcialonga 50x50 is a challenge within the challenge: with its own ranking but also included in the general one, participants needs to get to the finish line without external help. An epic adventure, not happening every day: you can ski on Marcialonga’s track at sunrise with hearts pumping with joy and trepidation living a timeless experience.
What about the registration fee? 5000 liras, corresponding to 2.60€, the exact same fee as in the first edition.
Vintage dress for the new Soreghina too, Sabrina Pellegrin, ready to share her smile in January with athletes, bisonti, photographers and all ski-lovers. For this special “number fifty edition”, Marcialonga launches a new stamp, beyond the usual stamp cancellation.
Registriations to both Marcialonga Story and 50x50 are available exclusively online.
Fashion passes, Marcialonga’s style remains.
