FAQs

What about the medical certificate?
First you have to decide whether you want to participate in the 'Competitive' or the 'Just for Fun' variant. If you have chosen 'Just for Fun', the problem is already solved - you do NOT need a medical certificate. If you have chosen the 'Competitive' version, you will need to upload a medical certificate when you register or send it to registration@stelviomarathon.it after registration. All information about the medical certificate can be found HERE.

REGULATIONS

before the race

 
Medical certificate

If you have registered for the main race, it is necessary to send a medical certificate. Italian participants need a medical certificate, which is specific to the sport discipline and is issued by an accredited sports doctor (according to D.M 18/2/1982). Foreign participants must have the following form completed and signed by the doctor. All certificates are valid for one year and must be uploaded at registration. If you register for 'Just for Fun' or the 'Stelvio Hike' no medical certificate is necessary. All athletes who do not have a medical certificate will only be listed in alphabetical order and will not participate in the awarding of the individual categories. However, timekeeping will take place. Except for the awarding of prizes, all services can be claimed. Prizes will be awarded to the 10 athletes who are closest to the target time. DOWNLOAD HERE: Form for foreign participants

Equipment

The Stelvio Marathon leads through high alpine terrain. The temperature between start and finish can vary greatly. Warm underwear, weather protection and running shoes adapted to the conditions are recommended.

There is no compulsory equipment for the participants.

Cancel your registration

The registration fee paid is generally not refundable. Should you be unable to participate for medical reasons, you can mail us your doctor's certificate of illness and we will credit your registration fee for the next year.

Competitions

There are the following 4 competitions: Marathon (42,195 km - 2.500 hm), Classic (26 km - 2.400 hm), Stelvio Hike (26 km - 2.400 hm) and Short Distance (14 km - 1.180 hm). Walking aids in the form of walking sticks, ski poles, and similar items may not be used in the 'Marathon', 'Classic', and 'Short Distance' events. Non-compliance will lead to disqualification. Only participants in the 'Stelvio Hike' competition may use walking aids such as hiking sticks, walking sticks, and the like.

during the race

 

Termination or abandonment

In case of abandonment of the race by a runner or if the jury stops the race (fog, sudden change of weather, wind), each participant is obliged to report to the next marshal as soon as possible and to strictly follow the instructions of the track marshals.

Abort or cancellation of the race

If the run cannot be carried out or can only be carried out partially for safety reasons, there is no claim to a refund of the entry fee or to its transfer to the following year. The decision about not carrying out and/or stopping the race is up to the jury.

Disqualification

The jury (race management) decides on disqualifications. Protests must be submitted in writing to the race director no later than 30 minutes after crossing the finish line (deposit: 50.00€). Anyone who behaves in an unsportsmanlike manner (shortcuts, disregard of official instructions, doping) will be disqualified without exception, and the start number will be taken away. Runners who do not reach the marshalling posts below after the end of the control will not be classified and will not be able to use the marathon services (food, ambulance, awards).

The start numbers of runners who pass the checkpoints after the end of the race and still want to continue will be marked with coloured felt pen.

Throughput times

Prad Suldenbach Bridge - 10.00 a.m. - KM 16.5 (KM 0)
Stilfs - 11.15 a.m. - KM 21 (KM 5)
Prader Alm - 1.00 p.m. - KM 28 (KM 12)
Franzenshöhe - 2.30 p.m. - KM 35 (KM 19)

The start numbers of the runners who pass the checkpoints after the end of the control and still want to continue will be marked with a pen. Race exclusions and disqualifications do not entitle to a refund of the entry fee (not even partial).

Nature protection

It is forbidden to throw away any rubbish outside the marked food supply zones. Leaving the race track is not permitted for reasons of nature conservation. Non-observance of these rules will lead to disqualification.

Most of the Stelvio Marathon route runs in the Stelvio National Park. The event is also a Going Green Event.

It is therefore very important to the organizer that nature conservation and environmental protection are observed.

Necessary measures, such as sufficient waste disposal points, will make it easier for participants to comply with the rules.

Safety

Instructions of the race doctors and the track attendants must be strictly followed. Failure to follow these instructions will result in disqualification (see regulations).

Time limit

Marathon - 8 hours 30 min. - finish time 16.40
Classic/Stelvio Hike - 8 hours 40 min. - finish time 16.40

If a competitor does not reach the prescribed lead times, he will be taken out of the race by the organizer.

Time keeping

The timing is carried out by the company TDS-Timing. The net time (real time) is measured. This means that the time is not triggered until the runner has crossed the start line. The time is stopped as soon as the runner crosses the finish line.
