Trail Running the Dolomites – Alta Via 2

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.
