Cancelled Brixen Dolomiten Marathon

Dear runners,

Today we write to you, in this difficult moment for everyone, to communicate unfortunately not good news. Currently the predominant topic is the corona-virus, of which nobody knows the evolution. Due to the exponential expansion of COVID-19, we are forced to cancel the eleventh Brixen Dolomiten Marathon as well as the 2nd edition of the Dolomites Ultra Trail and LadiniaTrails from July 4th, 2020 …

Over 500 athletes from nearly 30 nations are already registered for this year’s competitions. At the moment it is not possible to estimate how the situation will be in the first weekend of July. It was not an easy decision: there were engaging emotional discussions but in the end, intelligence and awareness triumphed that the health of each of you and our many volunteers is more important. Because WIHTOUT HEALTH, EVERYTHING is NOTHING!

The idea of postponing our event in autumn had been considered, even if only briefly. You all know the running calendar, and in autumn, there are unique running events. We also made our decision out of solidarity with the co-organizers: on the one hand, we think that it is not right and fair to woo the athletes of these races, on the other hand some of you have probably already registered for various autumn events.

From the organizational point of view, we inform you that all registrations will be valid for July 3rd 2021, at no additional cost. Unfortunately, we cannot refund the registration fee – we trust in your understanding. However, you can be sure that we will have nice surprises for those athletes, who have already registered.

Please stay or get well. We in the organizing committee hope that all together we will survive this violent health alarm – we warmly greet you all over the world and wish you all the best!

Christian Jocher, O.C. President
