A territory naturally linked to this sport: already in the early 70s, the Valle Anterselva hosted international competitions, and for this edition there will be no less than five local athletes competing.
The numbers are really important: 300 athletes coming from 35 different countries, men and women, engaged in the sprint tests on the first two days, in the pursuit on Saturday 21 January, and in the final adrenaline-pumping relay races on Sunday. The beating heart of the event, where there will be fun, music and good food, as well as the competitions, will be the biathlon and cross-country skiing centre “Südtirol Arena South Tyrol”, a stadium already designated to host the biathlon challenges at the next 2026 Winter Olympic Games.
