DXT 53k

General characteristics

Following the set off, you run through the S.SEBASTIANO – TAMER mountain group, moving on towards the Duran pass (km 17 - refreshment – 1605 m), where one of the most colossal rocky sequences starts that develops northwards with the MOIAZZA and CIVETTA.
Here, the terrain alternates between wide glacial circles and "solitary furrowed fields". It is incredibly solemn and extremely exiting to run through the gigantic base of the “Grande Civetta” until the Coldai Hut (km 27,5 – refreshment – 2135 m).
You then run at the foot of the isolated yet grandiose Mount PELMO, a mountain that polarises your vision, a mountain considered to be amongst the most fascinating and unique of the Dolomites with the Staulanza Hut (km 37 – refreshment – 1766 m).
Finally, after Tamai pass (km 43,5 – refreshment – 1715 m), the trail reaches the spectacular panoramic point of the Monte PUNTA (km 47 – 1952 m). Southwards from here you will be able to admire the BOSCO NERO and SPIZ di MEZZODI’, that complete the coronation of the valley.
