"I wanted to share the special emotions while running through this enchanting area with other runners" – said Gianni Poli, the "inventor" of the Cortina-Toblach Run, who discovered this route in 1988 during his preparation for the Boston marathon.
Today the participants run along the closed railroad line that once connected the two villages Cortina d’Ampezzo and Toblach. Starting point for the 30 kilometres long route is Cortina. On the way to Toblach the runners have to manage the altitude difference to the highest point on the mountain pass Climabanche (1,530 m), but they come by a very varied landscape.
For example, the participants are in the vicinity of the famous Three Peaks and they pass the lakes Toblach and Landro. By the way: In this area every first Sunday in February there takes place a 13.5 km long cross-country ski race in the opposite direction, from Toblach to Cortina.
