La Sgambeda 2019, 30km of Nordic skiing marathon, is at its 30 edition, and will take place from the 29th November to the 1st December 2019.
Every participant will choose a starting group according to their physical condition at the time of enrolment. The first group will be for top level athletes, the second for those with a good level of athletic preparation and the third for amateurs. Sgambeda number 30, which will take place over a distance of 30 km, intersperses the Visma Ski Classics races and Pro Team Tempo which covers a 15km route on Friday 29th November. The event will close with a 35km Mass Start on Sunday 1st December.
Thanks to the snowfarming technique, and despite the Visma Ski Classics appointments being practically the first of the season, there will be cross-country skiing in Livigno once again this summer with the Palio delle Contrade on 23rd August. Livigno’s "godmothers" Dorothea Wierer and Lisa Vittozzi will also be taking part in it, and the official opening of the first training ring has been scheduled for 19th October.
