STELVIO VIRTUAL RUN 2020

WHAT'S THAT?

No Stelvio Marathon happening in 2020? Not if we can do something about it! This year we came up with something special for you, the Stelvio Virtual Run 2020. Participation can take place anywhere within three days and is also free of charge.

 

You run the chosen distance, collect data such as distance, the difference in altitude and time with your fitness app or watch and then enter it here. The participant in each altitude difference category that is closest to the benchmark time wins a starting place for the Stilfserjoch Stelvio Marathon 2021!

COMPETITIONS

MARATHON 42,195 km

CLASSIC 26 km

SHORT DISTANCE 14 km

THAT'S HOW IT WORKS

1. REGISTER FOR FREE

Scroll up, click on 'Register', fill in the form - done. Now you are officially a Virtual Stelvio Runner!

 

You may print the start number (which we will send to you via email with your registration confirmation) and wear it during your run. Secure your 'Stelvio Virtual Run' T-shirt directly when you register and thus support our event.

2. START RUNNING AND COLLECT DATA

Start with your chosen run from home or from the starting point of your choice (always within the current restrictions).
Record your personal time with your watch or tracking app for your chosen distance.

 
It is important that you complete the specified distance. Don’t worry about the difference in altitude covered, we will take care of that. You can read up on this in the evaluation part.


It’s a matter of honour: Since everyone runs for themselves, we would like to appeal to athletic fairness and ask you to record the times and difference in altitude honestly.

You can find more information on “How do I record myself?” with our timekeeper.


Tip: On Facebook, there will be a live virtual starting signal for all participants at the official start time. You are welcome to run earlier or later than that as long as you are within the specified starting period.

3. UPLOAD THE RESULT

Let us know your results afterwards!


You will find the “upload link” in your registration confirmation email. There you can save your time and difference in altitude. Please enter your time before the upload timeframe expires.

Q&A

How is the evaluation done?

We stick together and nominate the winners together with all participants!


The Stilfserjoch Stelvio Virtual Run 2020 is not a normal competition because the evaluation has been adapted to the current conditions as much as possible.


Since not all participants can complete the run under the same conditions (course conditions, difference in altitude ...), the runner who comes closest to the benchmark time wins.


The winner of the Stilfserjoch Stelvio Virtual Run 2020 doesn’t need to be the fastest runner as if you win or not does not only depend on your own achievement. 


First of all he/she has to accept the challenge and complete the distance within the possibilities available. If you are on top or not depends mainly on the other participants.

How is the benchmark time being determined?

The benchmark time can only be calculated after all results have been uploaded and results from the following factors: distance, time and number of participants per difference in altitude category. Whether man or woman makes no difference.


Difference in altitude categories: 

MARATHON & CLASSIC: 0 - 500 m.i.a , 501 - 1000 m.i.a, 1001 - 1500 m.i.a, 1501 - 2000 m.i.a & über 2001 m.i.a

SHORT DISTANCE: 0 - 500 m.i.a & über 501 m.i.a

m.i.a = meters in altitude

The total times of all participants in the respective category (competition and difference in altitude) are divided by the total number of participants in this category. The one who comes closest to that time is the winner and gets a starting place for the Stilfserjoch Stelvio Marathon 2021.


Here is an example for you:
Competition: Marathon 2.500 metres in altitude
Difference in altitude category: 1.001 until 1500 metres in altitude 
Number of participants: 3 

Results based on the benchmark time of 4:33:29

Klara, your fellow runners Max und Franz as well as the OK Team nominate you the winner of the Stilferserjoch Stelvio Virtual Runs 2020 in the category Marathon 1.001 – 1.500 metres in altitude!
