A 130 km track along the legendary Alta Via number 1, Unesco World Heritage Site, the challenge will take place from 1st to 3rd July 2016 and it has been created and organised by the Dolomiti Sky Run Sports Amateur/nonprofessional Association affiliate to the Coni and AICS. 

The race is surrounded by a unique and breathtaking scenography that will put the athletes to the test, they will take on this challenge and face their own limits to conquer the competition, its beautiful places and its amazing walking routes, walking or running in half self-sufficency.

The fascinating path will take the runners from Braies (Bolzano) to Belluno and, great news, the National Park of Dolomiti Bellunesi has given the organization the permission to change the last and final stage from Duran to Belluno, which was modified last year due to weather conditions, so the athletes will cross through the Van di Città, a natural reserve distinguish itself for the environmental quality and the originality of the landscape (isolated and silent high-mountain nival basins).

People can join the race as single or in medley relay run made of 2 or 3 participants (male, female or mixed gender).

This amazing three-day race on the beautiful Dolomiti mountain skyline is one of the cheapest competitions of its kind, thanks to the organization's efforts to offer an unforgettable sport experience from all points of view.

The entire race track, 130 kilometers with 10.330 meters of positive gradient (up) and 11.200 of negative gradient. A challenge to live high in adrenaline and in high-fly up to 2.580 meters in the heart of Dolomiti Mountains as Fanis, Croda Rossa, Tofane, Cinque torri, Nuvolau, Pelmo, Civetta, Moiazza, San Sebastiano, Tamer, e Schiara.

The highest point of the track will be after almost 40 km: where the athlets will arrive at Lagazuoi shelter (2580 m). The race will go on through the Falzarego pass, in the direction of the Averau shelter; then through Mount Pelmo (first Dolomite peak to be climbed; it was in 1857 when the Irish John Ball bravely climbed it), the Sonnino shelter, a breathtaking panoramic viewpoint, where enthusiasts can enjoy the massive northern face of mount Civetta. Following Mount Pelmo and Sonnino shelter, there are a couple of small slopes through forests, scree slopes and meadows, followed by some further hills, right before the final stage with the spectacular view of Van de Città and then the arrival in Belluno.
