Val Gardena Mountain Run
On 9th July 2017, Val Gardena will host the Val Gardena Mountain Run, departing from St. Ulrich and arriving at Monte Seceda.
The distance of the competition, which is organized by the Gherdёina Runners, is planned in a special way, in order to enable professional and hobby runners to participate.
Nevertheless, this mountain run is very challenging, but at the same time very beautiful, because it leads the runners through the wonderful landscape of the Dolomites.
