For a couple of years now, I’ve been entering the draw for the Maratona dles Dolomites in Italy. There was just something about the Granfondo that had me hooked and I wanted in. I was lucky enough to be one of the 5,000 people selected to take part in the race (out of 32,400 people who had pre-registered for the draw). As happy I was to be selected, I was unable to take part in last year’s race. Luckily the organization let’s you withdraw and transfer the fee for the next year, and that’s what I did. And am I glad that I did. I had the most perfect active holiday last week!
