At an event that is already unique, Arcese offers a vast range of initiatives for old and young.
Caricaturists, make-up artists and entertainers will involve those present during the whole weekend with performances and lots of surprises.
It begins on Saturday morning when Ciccio Tempesta will award the prizes for the young children’s contest. This renowned artist will then perform at 11.30 am at the Arcese Kids Village, located at the finish line of the Maratona in Corvara, where an Arcese van will be transformed into a stage for the occasion. There will also be Mr. Baloons, a true ‘balloon artist’, who produces works of art with a few simple gestures.
Entertainment from the two artists will continue in the afternoon at the Maratona Village.
The full staff will go on stage at 11 am on Sunday at the Arcese Kids Village, just a few metres from the finish line. Adults and children will be involved in games and dancing and can get a caricature or be made up, while our staff hands out Arcese free gifts.

MARATONA 2015 CLIMBER’S JERSEY
Castelli’s close relationship with its pro riders is no secret, and the products they inspire continue to pour out of the Castelli factory.
The Climber’s Jersey answers the Cannondale-Garmin and MTN-Qhubeka riders’ requests for a super-lightweight, highly breathable jersey for the mountain stages of the Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France.
This jersey is made from 3D mesh fabric on the front and shoulders to keep the jersey extremely aero, light and dry, and the waist band to keep the 3 rear and zippered key pocket in place. The 3D nature of the fabric means that most of it never touches your skin, so it never clings or absorbs water. Pour a bottle over your head to cool down, and moments later the jersey is back at race weight.
While the jersey was originally made for big climbs and hot weather, the pro riders showed Castelli that it’s the ideal jersey for most conditions because of its very wide temperature range and aero advantage. It’s cut to hug the torso and eliminate any excess fabric flapping when battling the wind. Castelli’s wind tunnel results show that the Climber’s Jersey is a full 17 watts faster when riding at 40 km/h compared to a standard cycling jersey.
The Maratona Climber’s Jersey is supplied with an “eco pocket” to encourage riders to make sure that packaging from energy gels and bars isn’t accidentally jettisoned en route.
The president of the Organizing Committee Michil Costa says: “since November an important work of development has been done together with Castelli’s supervisors and the final product is the proof. We are proud of the result, the jersey as well as the accessories are simply excellent!”
Everything Castelli does is geared toward speed and comfort. The new Volo Bibshort provides optimum muscle support with a perfect anatomic fit. The revolutionary GIRO AIR leg band provides more stretch and distributes the compression over a larger area.
The body of the short uses a 200+ gram Affinity Lycra®, which increase the short’s affinity for keeping you comfortable and warding off fatigue with high stretch on the inner thigh, aerodynamic texturing on the outer thigh, and gentle compression throughout.
The Volo Bibshort is comfortable on a wide range of body shapes and helps prevent overheating by incorporating breathable mesh bib straps. The KISS AIR seat pad uses a seamless construction of brushed microfiber to prevent any chafing, and the pad is anatomically shaped to follow your movements. The KISS AIR also features a variable-density design with more padding where you need it and less where you don’t. The KISS AIR seat pad ensures excellent comfort no matter which Maratona dles Dolomites course you are riding.
The Castelli Official Maratona Outfit will be on sale in the Maratona online shop after the event.

“Let your heart decide” they say, and it is true: decisions made with the heart, when they are deeply felt, are always the right ones.
However, in order to feel with your HEART, the mind must be cleaned, purified and liberated. We have to stop lying to ourselves, in order to deal with our daily lives, as much as possible, with our heart.
We don’t need sport, or a holiday, or to free ourselves from stress…the mind frees itself with a tool that is within everyone’s grasp: forgiveness.
The black dots represent the negative that we experience every day … a tiff, disappointment, a ‘no’… but also our unstoppable desire to appear better than others, our arrogance, judgement and ego.
In the logo our mind is represented as a dark and obscure labyrinth, dotted with black points, but forgiveness intervenes with its strength (colour) to protect our heart and leave it intact.
