Entries are now open for the 2024 edition of Maratona dles Dolomites.

Entry is through a ballot, which is open from Tueday 10 October until midnight on 6 November 2023.

4300 places will be available in the ballot out of a total of 8000, with the remaining entries allocated to tour operators. Four hundred charity entries will also be released in November and March.

Three distances are once again on offer for 2024: the full 138km with over 4200m of climbing, and two shorter routes of 106km and 55km.

The ballot costs €2 to enter, and the draw will be held in the second half of November. A list of successful entrants will be published on the event website and riders have from 6 December 2023 until 17 April 2024 to confirm their place.

The entry fee for 2024 is €150, plus a €10 refundable deposit for the timing chip.
