Twinning Marcialonga - Bieg Piastow 2020

Marcialonga 2020 twining with Bieg Piastow

This year the theme chosen to embed all the actions and events is: “Marcialonga is connection”. Connection between skiers of all ages, among sports disciplines, with the territory but also with people from different countries that take part to the different Marcialonga events. It is in the name of this special attribute that the Marcialonga O.C. paved the path to the twining with another international Worldloppet race, the Polish Ski Marathon Bieg Piastow.

The partnership was signed in June between the CEOs of the two races, the start of a friendship that should help connect not only the races, but above all the skiers and encourage them to travel around the world for this common passion for xc-skiing.

Moreover, a Polish delegation will be present to the 47th Marcialonga, as well as the Marcialonga Team will travel to Bieg Piastow - inviting the interested people to join the ski-group.
