Arcese will sponsor the Maratona Dles Dolomites - Enel, the queen of the Granfondo races
Once again, the planet is the protagonist of the Maratona Dles Dolomites - Enel, which for its 35th edition has chosen the "Ciüf", flora in Ladin (local language), as the theme that will characterise the event. Arcese is confirmed as a partner for the seventh consecutive year.
The event, scheduled for July 3, 2022, involves cyclists from all over the world, accompanying them through the heart of the Dolomites and it has a different theme for each edition, a topic used for discussion and making people think: 2022 will be the year of flora, a topic more topical than ever. The event aims to make people talk about environmental issues related to our planet. This will not be the only change, however. In fact, this year there will be a reduced number of participants (8 thousand instead of 9 thousand) to ensure an increasingly sustainable race.
Arcese has always been committed to sustainability through numerous projects and activities. Our commitment is to act ethically and responsibly, aware that our activities and choices reflect on the environment, people and society in which we operate. In the development and delivery of our services, in fact, we strive to minimise the impact generated by our activities and give our support for the protection of the environment. For this reason, even in the selection of our partners, we choose those who share our vision, values and attention to the environment. And the consolidated partnership with the Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel is further confirmation of this.
Passion for sport and concern for the environment have always united the Maratona and Arcese. Therefore, in collaboration with Arcese, "Green Corners", spaces where volunteers will help visitors to recycle, will be set up both at the Maratona Village and at the finish line.
"Each one of us can play an active role in the process of improving the place where we live," declares Claudio Canins - Managing Director of the Marathon - who continues: "Making sustainable choices is of paramount importance, as is building lasting relationships with quality partners who give us the assurance of a real commitment to the future, with concrete, traceable and transparent interventions. That's why we consider the partnership with Arcese very important, especially for the increasingly active commitment it expresses."
A partnership we are increasingly proud of, as Matteo Arcese - Executive President of the Group - underlines: "We are proud to be standing by the Maratona both as partners and participants: both myself and Team Arcese will be actively participating in the event together with thousands of fans. Cycling is a fascinating sport: it requires strategy, passion and commitment. It not only rewards the determination of the individual but also teamwork. Values which our Group fully identifies with."
MARATONA DLES DOLOMITES ENEL
The Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel is the most prestigious Granfondo in Europe, and takes place against the stunning backdrop of the Dolomites, with routes on which the great champions of international cycling have made history. The first edition dates back to 1987, when 166 fans from Italy, Germany and Austria participated in the race. By 1990, there were already 1,000 registered participants. Today, the requests for registration exceed the number of bibs available: more than 30,000 from over 80 nationalities, but this year only 8,000 lucky cyclists will be able to challenge the Dolomite peaks.
