new start area

Due to the national italian RAI live broadcast on Sunday 17th February, the starting area will be transferred 400 metres to the finish line of the St Martin stage. This new starting location thus also meets an often voiced wishes of contestants to begin the race on flat terrain. After the start line we will be making our way towards St. Magdalena, and turning off towards Welsberg after 1.5 km. These additional 3 km are offset by the cutting out of the loop in the Pichl sports area. You can find the new trail and the updated map here.


Trail:  The entire 42 km track will be open to over 2,200 participants from 15th january.


Reduced early bird fees up until 31.01.2019.

Participants from 33 countries have so far signed up. Take advantage of the reduced early bird fees up until 31.01.2019.


Gsiesertal Lauf in DORO Style
We all dream of being able to express ourselves and our own personalities. Indeed, this was how a dream was born – from the desire to create something unique for an extraordinary athlete but also for all women who love cross-country skiing and more.

The design evokes the constellations to remind us that women are always our stars, but it includes some special requests from Doro, such as the red, the color representing her spirit as a passionate fighter. All this sets a new standard of style both on and off the trails. Doro Style by Sportful. www.sportful.com/ii/xc-ski/cross-country-ski
