At the last minute, the Organizing Committee received a decision from the district authority of Lienz, according to which the proposed event will not be permitted.
“More than 500 participants from over 20 nations have been in East Tyrol for days to take part in the Dolomitenlauf,” says Organizing Committee President Theurl, disappointed.
Later this morning, the district authority of Lienz informed the organizer that the application for an open track could not be approved and that the gathering in mass sports was prohibited. For this reason, the organizer felt compelled to cancel the event without replacement.
“I’m very sorry about that. We have done everything to enable the registered participants to experience the Dolomitenlauf. The decision considers the strict Covid regulations,” says Theurl.
