DELICIOUS TRAIL DOLOMITI


Running in the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, enjoying panoramas of unparalleled beauty and awe-inspiring nature, passing through places rich with history and tradition. These and many others are the wonders experienced by those who pin on a race number at the Delicious Festival Dolomiti.

Two days of food and wine and sport, while getting to know the incomparable area of Cortina and the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. An event that has grown and developed over time, where competition meets culture and history through the many initiatives that have become part of the Delicious Festival Dolomiti organized by the L5T Sport ASD association and the Delicious Cortina consortium.
The Delicious Festival races, held between Cortina d’Ampezzo and Badia, allow trail running enthusiasts to sample the trails in the Dolomites while admiring historic hamlets and spectacular mountains, such as the 5 Torri, Lagazuoi, and Nuvolau, as well as the Federa and Lìmides lakes.
Since the first edition, the Delicious Festival has aimed to promote the respectful enjoyment of nature and the area around Cortina d’Ampezzo and Badia. But also to allow the hundreds of fans who every year find themselves racing on the Dolomite trails, with trail running shoes and poles, to experience the uniqueness of this majestic and fragile environment.

THE 3 RACES OF THE DELICIOUS FESTIVAL


The Delicious Festival includes three races: the Delicious Trail Dolomiti, the Short Delicious Trail Dolomiti, and the Medium Delicious Trail. This is the sixth edition of the first two races, and the first edition of the Medium.

The queen race of the event, the Delicious Trail Dolomiti, starts from Cortina and winds its way over approximately 43 kilometers and 3,100 meters of elevation gain, passing by Pocol, Croda del Lago, the 5 Torri, Nuvolau, Lagazuoi, and Passo Falzarego. An experience that offers rich opportunity for cultural discovery. In fact, the route crosses through the largest open-air museum in the Alps, following the traces of the Great War, which left deep scars on the valleys and cliffs in this part of the Dolomites.

The Short Delicious Trail Dolomiti starts from Pocol and follows a shorter route, of about 22 kilometers and 1,300 meters of elevation gain. The Medium Delicious Trail starts from Alta Badia, at the finish area of the Alpine Ski World Cup’s Gran Risa run in La Villa, and tackles a 30-kilometer course with 1,900 meters of elevation gain. From La Villa the itinerary follows the picturesque “Path of the Artists,” which leads to San Cassiano before starting to climb toward the central plateau and the Störes meadows. From here a long descent takes the runners to Armentarola and the gates of the Fanes-Senes-Braies Natural Park, where the trail turns toward Lagazuoi.

For all the races, the finish is in Pocol, which hosts the event’s big final party.
