If you're into Mountain Running, Cortina d’Ampezzo combines an exceptional variety of routes with unforgettable scenery. Runners have miles of dedicated routes, running uphill, downhill, on challenging terrain or gentle dirt tracks, between peaks, valleys and breathtaking landscapes. There are countless options, including 18 GPStracked itineraries which are described in detail on the Running map you can pick up at the Info Point in the center. Among many great running itineraries we recommend the easy “Giro di
Pian de Ra Spines”, 9 mi (15 km) mostly on the flat, through unspoilt woodland with glimpses of the river Boite; for something more challenging, the “Giro delle Tofane” is an especially satisfying 18 mi (30 km) run with 5,577 ft (1700 m) of altitude gain, much of it through the stunning Val Travenanzes.
June is the month dedicated to running in Cortina d’Ampezzo, with two major international running events taking place. The Cortina - Dobbiaco Run, along the route of the former railway line, and the Lavaredo Ultra Trail, featuring three days of trail running race over various distances and altitude differences.
Training camps offering running technique and race preparation are organised over the summer.
