Preparing for
the 42nd event!


Since January 1980, the Bessans International Marathon has given each participant an opportunity to take on their very own Nordic ski challenge and enjoy a fabulous experience on perfectly groomed trails against a magnificent backdrop.

It is one of the season’s flagship events both at national level – marking the opening of the FFS Marathon Ski Tour – and on the world stage as part of the European tour, Euroloppet.
