The Sellaronda race should not be underestimated!
22 april 2016
  • In 2017 the Sellaronda Skimarathon will take place on Friday 24 March arriving  in Arabba.
  • Oswald Santin: «The Sellaronda race should not be underestimated!»

A month or so has gone by since the last team crossed the finish line at Corvara’s ice stadium, in the heart of Alta Badia, but the Organizing Committee, coordinated by the Mountain Guide Oswald Santin is already hard at work organizing the twenty second edition which will have its headquarters in Arabba.
«We’ve gone straight back to work- said Oswald Santin – before settling into the summer season, we met up with the Valle di Arabba’s Committee to decide when to hold next edition’s race. Before evaluating possible dates, we analyzed a few of the past edition’s aspects. Studying the number of athletes who pulled out or of those who didn’t get past the gates, one out of eight teams did not finish the race, so we came to the conclusion that the Sellaronda Skimarathon is a competition which should not be under estimated. Even if snow and weather conditions during the 21st edition were perfect, 72 teams did not cross the finish line at Corvara. This proves, that in spite of the race being tackled on easy, groomed slopes, the athletic factor, training, and having excellent downhill skiing skills are fundamental elements in bringing the Sellaronda home.

  It is for this reason that I congratulate all finishers.
Furthermore we were astonished by the increase in number of mixed teams, in 2016 we have gone from 52 teams in 2016 compared to 40 during the previous edition. Due to this increase, we have decided to add another ranking, with its own prize money for this very interesting category».
«In terms of next year’s dates- Santin continued- there were two possibilities during 2017: the 17 March or else the successive Friday, the 24 March. The final choice was to schedule Sellaronda’s twenty-second edition on Friday 24 March. This choice was dictated by the availability hotels in Arabba had of offering accommodation to all competitors».
«The international calendars- Santin concluded- are not yet known, there is the risk that once again the Sellaronda will take part at the same time as one of the World Cup’s stages, I am very sorry for this risk, but competitors’ needs for accommodation have prevailed. I hope that the technical directors of the various national teams will let their athletes freely decide to take part in the Sella Ronda, not like this year. Ski-mountaineering started off following a sense of freedom, I hope it continues this way!».
