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.  With thousands of kilometers of single track trail connecting stunning villages to alpine refuges and multicolored, jagged rock massifs, this area is a true trail runner paradise.
