For the first 16 kilometers, you will go up the Val di Fassa with a rise of about 350 meters. Once you get to Canazei, you will descend to the other side of the river in the direction of the Val di Fiemme. For the next 48 Km you will be on an undulating course that is either slightly uphill or slightly downhill. The fun comes as you go through each village. Italians know how to treat their racers and they will be out in force cheering you on.

At the 67 kilometer point, the legendary Molina uphill "the Cascata" will test your stamina. But you will know that in a mere three kilometers at Cavalese, you will finish this superb race. The Molina uphill has already been placed in the history books of the Marcialonga Classic Race just as the well-known alpine mountain passes have become part of the legend of the Tour de France.
