Val di Zoldo (Belluno), 4 June 2020 – The 2020 edition of the Transpelmo, a trailrunning race that was due to take place on 6 September on the paths of the Val di Zoldo (Belluno), is canceled.
The organizing committee carefully evaluated each possibility, believing that the conditions for organizing the event do not exist. «Reluctantly, we must give up the 2020 edition of the Transpelmo» explain Andrea Cero and Eris Costa, coordinators of the organizational staff of the event born in 2008 which takes place along the paths around Monte Pelmo, one of the iconic peaks of the Dolomites. «The Covid 19 emergency has confronted us with an unprecedented situation. After waiting for the evolution of the health and regulatory framework, given the rigidity of the required safety standards and explored every possibility to avoid cancellation, we arrived at the decision to postpone until next year. This is a very painful choice but we believe that this is the most responsible solution towards competitors – over 800 in last year’s edition – and volunteers – over two hundred».
«Let’s meet on September 5, 2021, in the belief that our choice is understood and with the hope that the many competitors who have trusted us in recent years will also be with us next year, for an edition that we want more engaging. than ever» say Cero and Costa again. «For the summer now imminent there will be no Transpelmo but we do not want to remain still: we are developing, together with our sponsor hands Salomon, some initiatives to make the trail enthusiasts live, even if in a different way than usual, the our beautiful mountains».
