La Sportiva

La Sportiva is the new title sponsor, there’s a new race, the UltraDolomites 87K, and the Cortina trail will take place on Friday

The 13th edition of the Lavaredo Ultra Trail taking place in Cortina d’Ampezzo from 27 to 30 June 2019 is replete with novelties. First of all, there is a new title sponsor. After 10 years of marriage with the American multinational The North Face, the three-year period 2019-2021 will be branded La Sportiva.

The number of trail lengths have now gone from 3 to 4: the 120 km Lavaredo Ultra Trail (the only Italian stage of the prestigious Ultra Trail World Tour circuit), the 48 km Cortina Trail and the 20 km Cortina Skyrace have now been joined by the 87 km UltraDolomites taking place on Saturday morning.
Like the other races, the finish line of the UltraDolomites will be on Corso Italia in Cortina whereas the start of the race will take place in a different village every year, thus making it a unique journey through the Dolomites, a UNESCO world heritage site.

The Cortina Trail will take place on Friday thus enabling participants to have a full day to themselves without having to share a large part of the trail with LUT athletes like in previous years.

More information will shortly be available.
