20th Sellaronda Skimarathon on the 20.03.2015 from 6:00 o’clock p.m.

The Sellaronda is lights in the night. A struggle that relieves. It’s ascent and descent. It’s a silence that makes noise. One thousand ski-mountaineers who have come to terms with nature. They start when all around is silence, they ski down the runs when the mountain rests, they don’t follow the sun, they head for the moon. They way is up to the Dolomites passes, their route the one that connects the four Ladin valleys of Gardena, Badia, Fassa and Livinallongo. The racetrack is more than 42 km long with an altitude gab of 2800 metres. The Sellaronda is considered the Formula 1 among the ski-mountaineering competitions, athletes and equipment fixed at best, nothing is left to change. Uphills covered at an unbelievable pace (over 1600m/h), downhills run at crazy speed, with just one a front lamp to enlighten the snow. It’s the passion that pulses, the desire to finish that pushes forward. A need for competitiveness that urges all the athletes to be part of it, to compete when all around the world rests: when eveybody goes to sleep the privileged ones taking part to the Sellaronda meet together. The meeting point is on the 20th of February 2014 in Selva Val Gardena.
