The 177K – MTB Carnica Marathon partly covers paths of the Carnic Crossing or KarnisheHohenweg on path 403 with departure from San Candido in Via Peter Paul Reiner 16 and arrival in Tarvisio at the Old Station on the Alpe Adria cycle path.
The race has a distance of 240 km with 11,900 meters of positive altitude difference to be completed in 4 stages.
To complete each single stage, a maximum time of 10 hours is provided and at the end of each stage there is a stay in base camps set up by the organization.
The race is not of a competitive nature, even though a survey is carried out for the sole purpose of verifying the presence of all the participants at the end of each single stage, and has a beneficial purpose since the amount of the registration fee requested will be donated to charity in favor of the “Idee di corsa” project which deals with the start-up of sports for children with physical or cognitive disabilities or for children belonging to families in temporary economic difficulties through the instrument of sports scholarships (www.ideedicorsa.it). The non-competitive nature of the event aims to enhance the beneficial objective of participation and to allow each participant to rediscover the pleasure of immersing himself in the nature that characterizes the path, enjoying the pleasure of cycling freely.
