September 14th 2019
On 14 September 2019 the race takes 1000 athletes through the stunning scenery of the Sesto Dolomites to the finish at the Rifugio Antonio Locatelli S. Innerkofler just below the three world famous peaks. This is what makes it one of the most beautiful mountain runs in the world. With a distance of 17.5 km and an altitude differential of 1,350 m it demands a high level of fitness.

After the start at the Casa Sesto the broad road offering plenty of running space leads on the High Street to Sesto village centre to the main square, past the church and some of Sesto’s historic houses, and back to the start area at Casa Sesto by the Monte Elmo cable car. From there the route continues towards Moso.
Through the rich green larch meadows of Val Fiscalina, the most beautiful valley in the world, the athletes run to the Rifugio Piano Fiscalina and on to Rifugio Fondo Valle. Shortly after Rifugio Fondo Valle (at 8.2 km) at the crossroads Val Fiscalina Alta-Val Sasso Vecchio the route bends left towards Rifugio Comici.
The hairpin turns to Rifugio Comici and on to Rifugio Pian di Cengia at 2,575 m altitude have for many years been testing the fitness of the athletes. Only the best make it.
From Forcella Pian di Cengia the route continues with the backdrop of Monte Paterno above the Laghi dei Piani on to the Rifugio Antonio Locatelli S. Innerkofler.
