Trail Running the Dolomites - Alta Via 2

Hut to Hut in the Italian Alpine

"Each mountain is like a piece of art"  Reinhold Messner

The Dolomites, a jewel of the European Alps and UNESCO world heritage site, also serve as an alpine running mecca for those brave enough to get off the beaten path.  This area is a true trail runner paradise with thousands of kilometres of single-track trail connecting stunning villages to alpine refuges and multicoloured, jagged rock massifs.

Join Ross Berg, IFMGA Mountain Guide and Jen Segger, International adventure racer and runner, this September 2019 to tackle the stunning and challenging Alta Via 2.  Connecting iconic Tirolian villages Bressanone to Croce d'Aune passing through the Puez-Odle Natural Park and, of course, the legendary and highest mountain the Dolomites: Marmolada. We will be running either from small villages or from alpine refuge to refuge over 6 days and 7 nights.
