Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel - July 3, 2022

The first Maratona dles Dolomites took off on July 12, 1987. How many competitors? 166.

Thirty-five years have passed since then and the Maratona has never stopped. Today it’s one of the most spectacular granfondo races in the world. Over time it has achieved such fame that a lottery system had to be introduced. Of the 30,000 passionate cyclists who pre-registered for the event this year, only 8,000 lucky ones were able to win a bib to show up at the starting grid to dream – and sweat – on its climbs.

Maratona Dolomites Enervit

Every year the first Sunday in July sees participants compete on three different routes in the beautiful and picturesque setting of the UNESCO Dolomites National Park. The route touches legendary passes: the Campolongo, the Pordoi, the Sella Pass, the Gardena, the extremely tough Giau Pass, the Falzarego, and finally the Valparola. Let’s not forget the fearsome "Mür dl Giat" near the finish.

Starting from La Villa and finishing in Corvara, you can choose from:

  • Sellaronda Course, 55 km with 1,780 m of elevation gain;
  • Medium Couse, 106 km with 3,130 m of elevation gain;
  • Maratona Course, 138 km with 4,230 m of elevation gain.

The climbs are steep and challenging, but fatigue is offset by breath-taking views.

The Maratona Dles Dolomites race pack: a Sustainable Bag for Credible Sustainability

A sustainable project needs credible allies. And so, to create the bag for the Maratona dles Dolomites – Enel 2022, Enervit teamed up with two important partners active in the field of fair trade activities: the Associazione Gruppi “Insieme si può” of Belluno, Italy and the Selyn cooperative of Sri Lanka, which is certified by the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization).

This led to the creation of a 100% cotton bag to be used and reused over and over again. Ecological and sustainable, it respects the rights of those who worked to produce it as well as the ecological spirit of the event’s participants.

The result is a bag crafted entirely on handlooms by the men and women of Selyn – the cooperative which has operated in Sri Lanka since 1991 with the objective of providing its 1000 artisans with professional skills, healthcare support and steady employment. They met Enervit through the Associazione Gruppi “Insieme si può”, an NGO that since its foundation in 1983 has been committed to fighting poverty that afflicts various areas of the world by developing local economic activities to support the community.

This initiative is special, like the relationship between Enervit and the Maratona dles Dolomites. “Enervit has been with the Maratona since its first editions,” said Marina Petrone, Enervit’s Corporate Strategy Director, “and in these thirty years together our sense of responsibility toward the environment and the community has grown thanks also to the spirit of this event. Respect for nature and the awareness of the athletes are values we’ve always shared with its President, Michil Costa, and so together we conceived this project with eco-friendly bags. Because the company and events can do a lot to spread messages of sustainability, both in general and in the world of sports. We at Enervit are committed to planning each new activity while thinking first of all of the value of people, of our collaborators, our consumers, the environment and the territory.”

This environmental and social decision aligns with the values of the company, whose current challenge is to respect and valorize even further the planet and the people who inhabit it.
