The Medium Delicious Trail Dolomiti is a running race along the paths of the Dolomites UNESCO Heritage Site of around 33 km. with a positive difference in altitude of 1890 metres; the start is on Saturday 30th September 2023 at 9 a.m. at the finish area of the Ski World Cup in La Villa (Via Plan Murin 5). Time limit: 9 hours.
From La Villa, the route leads along the suggestive "Path of the Artists" to San Cassiano. Here begins the ascent to the central plateau. Then you reach the Störes meadows and start the long descent to Armentarola. At the entrance to the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park begins the ascent to Mount Lagazuoi followed by the descent to the finish line at Pocol.
4 great refreshment points have joined the Delicious team. You can rest there along the Val Badia route section and enjoy high-quality local snacks. Here we introduce them to you:
Ütia de Bioch - Las Vegas Lodge - Rifugio Alpino Pralongiá - Rifugio Scotoni
The route then continues in the municipality of Cortina and leads to the refreshment points Lagazuoi Refuge and Baita Resch.
A paid shuttle service to and from the venues - from Cortina to Badia and from Pocol to Badia - is available by reservation.
The trail running race Medium Delicious Trail Dolomiti was included in the ITRA (International Trail Running Association) race calendar and in the UTMB index race calendar and assigned the following points: 1 ITRA POINT and UTMB INDEX EVENT 50K*.
* From 2022 onwards, UTMB WORLD is using a new system: races will no longer be awarded "Qualifying Points". All races will now be placed into 1 of the 4 UTMB Distance Categories, which are 20K, 50K, 100K and 100M.
Participants who finish their race will receive a UTMB Performance Index in the race category. The Performance Index is used similarly as the "Qualifying Points" to show a runner’s experience at different distances and can be used to enter the UTMB® World Series Events and combined with Running Stones to enter the UTMB® Finals.
UTMB Index races do not give Running Stones to finishers as these are only available to finishers at UTMB® World Series Events and UTMB® World Series Majors.
