Cancellation running weekend in Brixen
The organising committee cancels the running weekend in Brixen with the following statement from the president, Christian Jocher:
To all running enthusiastic athletes, the Brixen Dolomiten Marathon – with all its runs – has been a great success in the past years. Whether the marathon itself, the Dolomites Ultra Trail, the Dolomites Ladinia Trail or the Villnöss Dolomites Run, personal best times were achieved in brilliant weather, great impressions were gained and the panorama of the Dolomites could be enjoyed in all its colourfulness and uniqueness. Equally unique was the opening of the biggest South Tyrolean running weekend on Friday evening: the Women’s Run Brixen.
For 12 years we have been striving to improve and expand our event – all on a voluntary basis, mind you. We are a small group of passionate runners who have put on a really great event in their spare time. And perhaps that is also the secret of the Brixen Dolomites Marathon – it is an event by runners for runners!
The financial and above all bureaucratic challenge has become more and more extensive in recent years. Our small OC team is no longer able to cope with this enormous additional effort. For this reason, we have decided with a heavy heart to no longer organise the races. Should someone be willing to take on the project and take over the organisation, we would appreciate it.
The Women’s Run Brixen, however, which is part of this project, will take place in 2024.
