The new edition of the Lavaredo Ultra Trail has been fast; Friday the 23rd of June at 11pm from Corso Italia in Cortina, the athletes have started the 120 kilometers trail. One of the most beautiful path in the world that reaches an altitude of 2500 meters, crossing Dolomites.
During the weekend also two other competitions have taken place, the Cortina Skyrace, 20 kilometres long with 1000 meters positive height gain and the Cortina Trail, 48 kilometers long, won by Matteo Pigoni who beat Enzo Romeri and Pawel Krawczyz. Pigoni finished with a time of 4h47’03, he declares, “We started very fast as always but I preferred to go ahead even if it was really hot. When I was halfway I kept going even if I was really tired, but I drank and ate well and I push till the end”.
Daniel Jung who was able to keep the sixth place at the Ultra trail, had to give up due to a muscular injury.
