CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: A SPORT FOR ALL AGES!

Marcialonga: All the Events

Snow is something magic. Children are amazed, they enjoy playing and discovering it. The grownups become kids again and many people dedicate themselves to snow sports.

Cross-country skiing gives the possibility to practise a healthy sport in a privileged living environment where pure beauty and silence are the protagonists.

Talking about its benefits, the body is stimulated by different movements that activate muscles and contribute to the development of balance and strength.

Skiing together, in a sport club, creates group and social dynamics that are essential for children but also for adults.

Cross-country skiing is not often associated with enjoyment, but those who practice it can guarantee that they are actually having a lot of fun!

What better way to discover it than through Marcialonga’s events? First Marcialonga Baby, then Minimarcialonga and Marcialonga Young. Registrations for Marcialonga Light are allowed starting with 16, whereas for the 70km race 18 years are required. In the meantime, opportunities for training, enjoying and trying out this sport are not missing!

From 16 years old is it also possible to compete with old cross-country skiing; wooden skis, classic technique and slow movements. Grandparents surely know it very well and they can re-experience those feelings with children and grandchildren during the Marcialonga Story.

For those who are not comfortable on skis, there is another possibility to take part and make an important charitable contribution: the Marcialonga Stars. It is a charity event to which several renowned people take part, whereby the funds raised will contribute to the research on cancer done by LILT.

Discover all the events of Marcialonga; everybody is connected, from a young to an older age!

 

MARCIALONGA STARS

Together for LILT 

 

 

Marcialonga Stars intends to connect the name of Marcialonga with an important charity event, supporting LILT of Trento ONLUS (Lega Italiana per la Lotta contro i Tumori – Italian Association for the Fight against Cancer). Not only a moment of solidarity but also an occasion to inform people about this topic. 

Notorious people from different fields such as sport, politics, journalism, business and show business, will be gathered together for a day dedicated to sport and charity purposes. It will be an occasion of joy and celebration with cheerful exchanges among old and new friends.

Every year an important sum of money is collected, which is used to buy new equipment, to support special therapies, to imply the projects of the centre for Proton Therapy of Trento and to help the reception centre for children and families during therapies. 

The event format is that of an easy and non-competitive race either on skis or snowshoes. 

For the 2019 edition we are thinking of a new and more engaging format, consisting in a relay race with very special team leaders…

The charity appointment is in Lago di Tesero on Saturday, 26th January 2019.
