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.
