This question can only be asked to those who do not belong to the generation born or raised with technology dictating times and rhythms. To those of us who were born during the era not controlled by algorithms, not guided by a GPS.
The Umanitè logo for the Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel 2023 has the intention of trying to open our eyes to humanity, to being 'human', to be ourselves. Trying to be guided by our instincts and not by an app, able to store a memory and not just to photograph it, and able to live our lives to the full instead of browsing through others'.
by Manuel Bottazzo, graphic designer of the Maratona
Umanité. Humanity. Being human. In the dual sense of humans and humanitarians. Perhaps we are forgetting that we are human. And that we are terrestrial beings. We should realise this now, more than ever before. Because if we don’t realise it immediately, that we are from Earth, we will disappear altogether. Not in a few million years’ time. Just a few dozen. Since we are human beings, we have the chance to choose. Who knows what we will choose? For now, in our small insignificant world, we have chosen to hold a very special Maratona. Dedicated to terrestrial beings as supportive, altruistic, empathetic, available. Human, in fact. Enjoy the ride filled with humanity.
'The Maratona of the fighters' is a celebration to those who experience sport in a slow way. In a hectic society one sometimes has to slow down and enjoy the moment. What better occasion than this day? We met people who were tired, enthusiastic, astonished, terribly hungry but happy. Could this really be their victory?
Hurry, the last outfits of the 35th edition of the Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel by Castelli and Kask can be found on the All4Cycling.com website.
Also this year, all participants will find the little Prosecco Maschio bottle in the race pack.
As we Ladins say, VIVES (cheers)

While Audi will help us to have sustainable mobility by again providing a significant number of full electric cars for the Green Angels and the race direction.read more

Selle Italia now operates with a newfound awareness of our future by focusing on sustainability and lowering emissions. The strong connection between nature and cycling has made us make a real commitment to safeguarding the environment and our planet.
Always at the forefront of environmental protection, the Carvico brand has designed a completely new vest compared to previous editions, distinguished by simple yet bold lines and a non-random colour: simple dark green which recalls the hues of the soil and nature.
The vest, which will be given away to every participant, is completely sustainable because it is made with Carvico’s eco-fabrics: Norway and Revolutional Eco. Both these fabrics are made from ECONYL®, an Aquafil brand, a 100% nylon thread regenerated from pre- and post-consumer waste materials such as fishing nets, carpet fluff and hard tulle.

This year too, the dish of the Maratona is another must-have, prepared by six hands by Valeria Margherita Mosca, Andrea Irsara, a famous local chef, and Elena Casiraghi nutritionist expert of the Equipe Enervit. The dish, which is specifically devised for cyclists, was created using only local ingredients, in keeping with the theme of the Ciüf, sustainability and locally-sourced cuisine. In a nutshell: barley, Swiss pine, fermented fir buds and dandelion. A simple, delicate, energetic and at the same time fragrant dish.
The Maratona is getting greener. And this year, with the Ciüf-Flora theme, even more. For us, the word sustainability means something concrete. Edition after edition, we try to add a new initiatives to make the Maratona more sustainable. For example, at the final pasta party this year we will only use reusable plates and cutlery.

Only a few months have passed since the 2021 edition but we are already busy getting ready for a new Marathon. Which will naturally be even better. Why? Because we are all nature so there couldn’t be a more suitable dedication: flora, in all languages; but we are Ladin people, so we wanted to call it Ciüf, the word for flowers in our language. Flora is beautiful, flora surrounds us and also reflects the nature of human beings. Some flowers seem to smile while others are a bit sad; some are a bit scary, like carnivorous plants, and others almost seem suspicious, just like some of us. There are simple ones, straight, curved, and fortunately also those that turn their heads to look for sunlight. And it’s those ones that we need for looking forward to another successful Marathon. To anyone dreaming of taking part, have a wonderful autumn - the larches here are yellow, some are already on fire. That’s also how the flora affirms its expression of the absolute.
Let us hope to learn from roots. They are otherworldly spaces for us; but they, the roots, transform the narrow into life, the underworld becomes paradise. They grow, develop and feed on what they find.
Observing roots to gain a new awareness and finally begin to feed on what we have, accepting what is because it cannot be otherwise. With lightness and not superficiality, because life, made of obstacles and hindrances and lack of light, remains an immense gift of colours, scents and beauty.
May it be a good year, with the wish to love each other.
Preparations are in full swing for the next Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel, which will be NATURALLY even more beautiful. Because we are all NATURE and there has never been a more appropriate dedication: FLORA, in all languages, but we are Ladin so we wanted to name it CIÜF, the flowers, as they are called in our language.
Each flower contains a library dedicated to wonder.
For every ride, no matter the conditions

As art is the theme of the Maratona dles Dolomites – Enel, we have created a dish that is a true work of art, where local products and nutritional value aimed at the cyclist are blended to perfection.
This dish is the result of a collaboration between Elena Casiraghi, nutrition and sport integration specialist, and the Michelin-starred chef Nicola Laera.
On July 4th, the 'Obiettivo tricolore' relay will start together with the Maratona. This is the second edition of the event promoted by Obiettivo3, a support centre helping people to get involved with Paralympic sport, founded by Alex Zanardi.

His secret passion? Cats, of course!

Many questions are being asked these days. The most important of which is: Will the Maratona take place? Yes? No?
What we can say today is that the running of the Maratona will depend on the development of the pandemic and that we, with a consistent safety protocol, can significantly increase the feasibility of such an important event. And we are working on this to get ready for July 4th.
We are monitoring the situation and are in constant contact with the relevant bodies in order to ensure the running of the race by drawing up a plan so that the event can be held with guaranteed safety for participants, volunteers and workers.
We are optimistic that we will be able to finish our artwork and we ask all of you to maintain this optimism and continue to train.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
