Need an excuse to visit a beautiful Italian mountain town and soak up race-day atmosphere? Even if you choose not to run one of the Lavaredo Ultra Trail races, there’s plenty to do in the area, from hiking to chilling in one of the bars and restaurants lining the main street (while watching the runners leave and return from the comfort of a warm terrace with a beer in hand).
The scenery is so beautiful! The Dolomites remind me a little of Yosemite, California. Both feature dominant and distinctive mountains. They are undoubtedly one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world
With 4 trail race distances to choose from, 120km, 87km, 48km and 20km, there will be a challenge for everyone who wants to take part.

We loved everything about this race! The Dolomites now hold a very special place in our hearts! Unfortunately, we didn't quite make it to the finish line of the LUT 120km but the journey we took was life changing! We'll be back to conquer it one day! 🙂
