Cortina d’Ampezzo becomes the capital of trail running this summer, launching herself as a Trail & running Resort.
This initiative is the big news from the Dolomite summer 2015, bringing new proposals, running itineraries, and dedicated services to a rapidly growing running population. Cortina is a natural paradise for trail runners at all levels, and the new services aim to make the area even more accessible to visitors wishing to take advantage of the excellent running opportunities offered by the territory.
A brand new running map outlines more than 475 km of running routes across 18 itineraries.Venturing along mountain trails, enjoying the physical effort of running uphill surrounded by pure nature and silence, triggers an emotion like no other… Running in the mountain is an adventure sport that can be enjoyed in company with others or in solitude. Whether expert or beginner, Cortina is the perfect backdrop for runners looking for those special trail running experiences. A vast network of mountain trails with different elevation gain offers unlimited opportunities for runners to challenge themselves in a setting of unparalleled natural beauty, surrounded by famous Dolomite peaks, lakes and waterfalls, forests and natural parks with historical traces from the Great War, fought at an altitude of 2.000 m. In addition, Cortina’s welcoming mountain huts and refuges offer perfect places for a pit-stop along the way to rejuvenate body and mind.
