Begngnü, it’s good to see you, New Year. We warmly welcome you. We've waved goodbye to last year, your older brother. With no kisses and no embraces. We said our goodbyes without the slightest hint of sadness.
That brother of yours really put us to the test, but also made us smile; he also tripped us up a few times, causing more than one of us to fall pretty badly. He made us change our plans, cancel trips, alter destinations; he shifted our finish line and sometimes even denied us of it; he challenged us with the steepest slopes, putting our characters to the test both physically and mentally, and he made us understood our passion for life. Passion in the true sense of the word.
The draw for the starting places of the 34th edition of the Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel took place in front of a notary.

For the lucky ones who were drawn:
Some useful advices to find an accomodation.
Cycling has always been an art, even back in Duchamp's day.
Bicycles are all about hard work and speed,
not forgetting those moments of pure poetry
as the wheels glide along the Dolomite mountain passes.
We wish all those cycling artists out there,
who dream of the Maratona being their masterpiece,
a wonderful Christmas,
as dazzling as the colours on that famous jersey,
which make the world such a beautiful place.
Bun Nadé. Merry Christmas
This year’s draw will be a little different than usual. The good luck of those who’ll be there, and also the good luck of those who won't - because luck doesn't give itself away, it merely lends itself. Bad luck is also just a passing thing, and not seeing each other over the last year will only increase our desire to meet up again. We must all stop waiting for our lucky day and take our lives in our own hands, putting the wind in our own sails to carry us forward. Let's hope there’s good weather along the way.
The pre-registrations for the Maratona dles Dolomites – Enel 2021 are closed.

Autumn. The season when the beautiful wind blows. The “in” season, not a season that we’d otherwise call “out”. The seasons are not merely a result of tourism - far from it. It would actually be much better to get rid of “tourist seasons”; at the end of the day, beauty can be found in all seasons. Autumn is beautiful, a strange one this year.read more
On July 5th, the Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel will be with us, wherever we are, riding a bike, walking in the mountains, in the city, on the beach, in the countryside or just lying on the sofa.
Just wear a Maratona customized cycling kit, a T-shirt, a vest, a cap, a sweatshirt and let the Maratona shine with its gorgeous colors and positive energy. And even if the Maratona will not take place this year, all the people who love this event will make it live, transforming the first Sunday of July into the Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel International Day.
To show your attachment to the Maratona jersey and to the event take a shot and publish it on the social networks by tagging the Maratona dles Dolomites page or by using #maratonaday, the official hashtag of the event.
Let's keep the Maratona alive and make this day a memorable one!
Dear Alex, friend of the Maratona and friend of all of us. Your phrase 'Disabled are those with low self-esteem' is a motto for us, an indication, a constant signal. Your strength is such that it is not so much a point of reference, rather a real lighthouse, whose light goes far beyond the energy you have in your arms, in your head, in your heart.
Dear Alex, enough words, these days many people have written beautiful things about you. We want to tell you that you are pushing the group once again. And behind you there are thousands and thousands of Maratona riders following you on the Dolomite climbs and on the climbs of life. Alex, we wish you much strength.
The official Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel outfits from the last years, created by Castelli and Kask, are available on our online shop: All4Cycling.com.
wants to help every cyclist to become a ‘finisher’ of Italian Granfondos
In a season so difficult for everyone, even the amateur cycling movement has suffered significantly, with the cancellation of almost all the races scheduled for 2020, except for some which have been postponed to autumn. Formula Bici is determined to send a positive signal, launching an initiative to raise funds, but also to motivate all cyclists: this is ‘Formula Bici RideYourDream’, designed to allow all cyclists to become a ‘Finisher’ of any Formula Bici event, by paying a contribution of €10 which will be donated entirely to the “Protezione Civile Italiana” (Italian Civil Protection).read more

Dedicated to art, this year's Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel will remain an unfinished artwork. But as you may be aware, it is not always possible to complete an artwork in a short time. Therefore we decided to cancel this year's appointment and to finish our artwork next year on July, 4th 2021. This will be the day where the 34th edition of the Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel will take place.
The Maratona is a party, a cycling party, a party where people show their passion for cycling and a place for those people that come from all over the world to share the same passion in the middle of the Dolomites. But it doesn't take long to understand that this is not the right time to party.
It's a hard time for everyone. When a cyclist faces a climb they are encouraged with words like come on, you can do it. Now, more than ever, is the time to support each other, to give each other strength and courage.
Next year we want to make it a special moment for everyone. To the participants, whether they already confirmed their registration for 2020 or not, we tell you not to worry about the registration, we know well that right now you have other concerns and because your registration will be kept valid for the edition in 2021. More details on how to validate your registration will be communicated within the end of April on our website, on social networks and personally by E-Mail to each participant.
Come on people, see you next year. Lift up your hearts!
Adopt or donate a tree! Our health and happiness depend on Nature, so help us look after it.
Eco-sustainability, environmental protection and the development of sustainable tourism are shared values for the Maratona dles Dolomites – Enel organising committee and for all those who live and work in Alta Badia.
On 29th October 2018, extremely bad weather in the Dolomites caused extensive damage, destroying millions of trees, roads, trails and damaging entire villages.
Even some of the beautiful woods, who have seen the immense group of ‘marathoners’ pass through for years have been razed to the ground by the storm.
Therefore the Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel together with Alta Badia supports a project dedicated to the reforestation.
The project, called WOWnature needs all of us. Help us by adopting or buying a tree.

The Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel is many things rolled into one: a competition, an event, an emotion, a story, a passion, and a unique experience for those who push down hard on those pedals or those who put all their commitment into organising it. In order for the Maratona to run smoothly, we apply principles in line with well-defined ecological values, respect for the environment and people, and sustainability.
In 2019, we intensified our inspections and discovered that there were several competitors who had not registered properly, a few that participated with an e-bike and many others who had thrown paper and rubbish along the road.
The competitors without bib and the riders who participated with an e-bike were given a lifetime disqualification. The participants who threw rubbish along the way were banned from registering for the next 3 editions.
Furthermore, some riders could not start due to not valid medical certificate.
A clean Maratona, in every sense of the word, is the only type of Maratona we envisage.
