Duman - tomorrow
Duman, meaning tomorrow in the Ladin language, is the theme chosen as the guiding thread of the Maratona dles Dolomites 2019. Duman is an invitation to all of us, whether or not we are cyclists, to question ourselves about the future of our planet, starting from each one of us - what we can do as individuals and as a community to slow down the exaggerated consumption of resources that Mother Earth has given us over the millennia.
How can we make our small contribution to help protect our ecosystem and thus our well-being as humans?
The Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel in numbers
The first Maratona dles Dolomites event took place in 1987. 166 cyclists from Italy, Germany and Austria took part in the race.
The number of participants increased from year to year. In 1990 it was just under 1,000 participants, rising to just over 6,000 in the mid-1990s. Today the number has had to be limited to 9,000 enthusiastic cyclists who get the chance each year to take part in this unique and world famous marathon.
Just how remarkable this success story is can be seen from the fact that from 2014 there are every year over 30,000 applications from would-be participants!
