The Sellaronda Trail Running cancelled

The Organizing Committee of the Sellaronda Trail Running, after an evaluation of the current weather situation with 20 – 40 cm of snow over 1800 metres on most of the paths of the racetrack and a lowering of the temperatures together with the arrival of a new low pressure system to cause a worsening of the weather next week-end, has decided to cancel the race as it is also impossible to find an alternative safe race course. This decision was taken to guarantee the athletes’ safety as, in case of bad weather, an adequate assistance at altitude cannot be granted and also to prevent athletes, coming from abroad or from far away, from facing long journeys to reach Canazei without chances to run the race. Mountains are wonderful but could also be very dangerous therefore the Sellaronda Trailrunning Organization thinks that athletes’ safety comes first. For these reasons, to our regret, the race has been cancelled, aware of the dissatisfaction this decision would generate. But we will wait for you to take part to next year’s edition in our wonderful Dolomites hoping that the sun will shine over their astounding peaks.
