EVENT INFORMATION
The Italian Marcialonga is a 70km race arranged annually on
the last Sunday in January in the Province of Trento. The idea WOMEN
of the Marcialonga dates back to 1969 and is inspired by the

brilliant performance of the Italian Franco Nones in Grenoble
Olympic Games the year before, in which he took the gold medal 2 Britta Johansson Norgren LAG 02.22:46
in the Men’s 30km. As the enthusiasm for cross country skiing 3 Sara Lindborg SER 02.27:08
mounted, the idea of creating something similar to the Swedish
Vasaloppet developed. The typical Italian warmth in combination EVENT PROGRAM
with lots of imagination match the exertion of covering such long Saturday 27/1/2018
distances. 15.00-15.45 local time – Press conference
16.30-17.30 local time – Team captains meeting
WHAT’S NEW
• Instead of two sprints Marcialonga will this year have one Sunday 28/1/2018
