It's 1967, it's the Italy of the 60s, the color world is going to overwhelm black and white. The brilliant idea of ??patron Torriani brings tadpoles on the ramps of the Blockhaus. Cycling has not yet passed the premature death of Coppi but it is a mass sport, a popular, epic, hard sport, in search of the new champion. That champion is a Belgian, that champion is called Eddy, that champion who will be the two-wheeled Pele was born that day on the bends of the Blockhaus, that epic born on the Majella. Eddy arrives destroyed by fatigue, without oxygen, Eddy collapses that day after having dominated, Eddy that day becomes Merckx. Those images now crumpled and dusty, half a century old, create the legend of the Blockhaus, the mother mountain that everyone wants to conquer. The Blockhaus is not a climb, it is a place of pilgrimage. Mountain mysticism meets fatigue. The hairpin bends of the Blockhaus are shaved on the muscles. Breath becomes short already after the first kilometers. When the luxuriant and green landscape gives space to the lunar landscape, the heart meets the mountain. The emotion devours the gait. Fatigue overwhelms lucidity.

Our Marathon is not just a race, a harder than usual. The Blockhaus Marathon is an adult game with a heart that can fill you up. It will be an unforgettable day for every amateur cyclist, for every enthusiast. Entering in symbiosis with the Majella Madre makes it lighter, creates dreams. You can't miss it! You can't miss this unique opportunity!  Conquer the stone giant!
