Course description

The hike course of the Stelvio Marathon is 26 km long. Like the other competitions, also the hike course starts in Prato allo Stelvio, passes by the farm “Patzleidhof” and leads the runners on the path “Archaik” to the small town of Stelvio. The village is known all over the place for its narrow and really steep alleys.

 

These alleys guide the runners to the village exit towards the farm “Platzhof” not far from the small church of San Martino. From there, the participants can catch a glimpse of “King Ortles”, which is with 3,905 m the highest mountain in South Tyrol. The route thereafter will be a mixture of narrow forest paths and wide gravel paths, which results in a constant change of pace. On this section of the course, some runners might have the opportunity to spot some wild animals.

 

Afterwards, the runners will pass by the Alp of Prato and the hut “Furkelhütte” where the track starts to be more high alpine. From that moment on, “King Ortles” will guide the participants to the finish. The runners will stay on a mountain path called “Goldseeweg” for some time until they descent 300 metres in altitude right above the Upper Alp of Tarces to the 25th turn of the legendary Stelvio Pass.

 

From there, participants have an open view on the finish. At that point, only 24 turns separate the runners from the top of the Stelvio Pass and therefore the finish of the race.
