Marcialonga takes place in Italy on Sunday, January 30.

The Italian crown jewel in skiing, Marcialonga, has twice been awarded as the “Best Event of the Year” in Visma Ski Classics. The race was established in 1971 when innovative Italians decided to replicate the world-famous Vasaloppet and create their version of the legend.

Last year’s event was the 50th-anniversary edition, and this “long march” has gained legendary status over the years.

Many skiers consider Marcialonga the most extraordinary long-distance skiing event globally due to its magical atmosphere, well-oiled organization, and the beautiful surroundings that the course can offer. Thousands of participants come from all over the world to enjoy the perks of Marcialonga. 

Additionally, the event organizers have adequate snow farming facilities ensuring that the race can be held even if there is no natural snow on the ground.

CHEERING SPECTATORS

Marcialonga starts in Moena, Val di Fassa, and finishes on the main street of Cavalese, Val di Fiemme, passing through 13 villages and thousands of cheering spectators.

The course passes on the prominent ski jumps in Predazzo. It goes through the town center before reaching the famous Nordic ski arena in Tesero, which serves as the scene for Tour de Ski and has been the host location for three FIS Nordic World Championships in 1991, 2003, and 2013.

The final climb, Cascata Hill, is probably one of the most famous landmarks in the history of long-distance skiing. The Cascata Hill has a unique checkpoint where the points are calculated according to the fastest time up the hill instead of the first skier reaching the top as in regular climb checkpoints. 

The race’s finish is a thrilling sight to see since the skiers approach the town center surrounded by a large crowd of cheering spectators.

Cavalese has a wide variety of shops, restaurants, cafés, and places to visit. Over the race weekend, visitors can easily detect an international vibe that leaves no one disappointed.
