Bio


"The effort is never wasted: you suffer but you dream"

Pietro Mennea


I'm Mara Martini and I was born in Claut, a small town in Valcellina in the province of Pordenone. I started skiing at the age of 4 and I fell in love with ski mountaineering when in 2011 the World Championships of this discipline took place in Claut. I immediately thought that one day I would have liked to run too with the blue uniform up and down, through the mountains with a pair of skis. This dream has come true four years ago when my first call in blue arrived. This sport, certainly very tiring, has given me great satisfactions and great results. The most important were the second place in the Mezzalama Trophy and the bronze medal in the World Championships. In winter I am a ski instructor, so between one lesson and another I try to carve out some time to train in order to be able to give my best to the races. It’s tiring to work and train, but if passion overcomes fatigue everything is possible.

Interview

The mountains near home.
2) Which is your specialization?
Skimountaineering.
3) When and why did you start Skimountaineering?
When I assisted to the Ski Mountaineering World Championships in 2011 in Claut, my town. From there my passion was born.
4) Do you have a pre- race routine?
I don’t have a particular routine, I only try not to think too much about the race so as to get too nervous at the start.

Continue to train to feel good about myself and to get the most out of the races.
