Place
Sesto/Sexten-Rifugio Locatelli alle Tre Cime di Lavaredo/Drei Zinnen refuge - Sesto/Sexten
Registration required
Yes
The running race – named after the famous “battlemented” three dolomite peaks (Tre Cime di Lavaredo/Drei Zinnen) - is taking place this year for the 18th time, covering 17.5 kilometres and a difference in altitude of 1,350 metres (4,429 ft).

Following a run around the village of Sesto the competitors will continue to Moso, on into the Val Fiscalina valley, along the valley floor as far as the valley head refuge, on to the Zsigmondy hut, continuing to the Pian di Cengia/Büllelejoch hut. From the Pian di Cengia saddle the run does not follow the usual route to the left, along the long downhill stretch, but the right-hand trail above the laghi dei Piani lakes to the Rifugio Locatelli refuge. It omits the short tract which is available to walkers, spectators and for the way back.
