This mountain race (German: Berglauf, Italian: corsa in montagna) features an 11km-long uphill course which includes 1,200 metres of ascent.

The race is run on gravel roads, trails and ski slopes, starting on the main square of Tarvisio, a ski resort in the north-eastern corner of Italy, located just a few kilometres from the borders with Austria and Slovenia.

The finish line is at an elevation of 1,770 metres at the Santuario Monte Lussari, a pilgrimage church that sits on the summit of Mount Lussari, near the upper cable car station of the Tarvisio Ski Area.

Last year, 73 men and 23 women took part in the race. Eighty per cent of the finishers were Italians, twenty per cent came from Austria. The winners were Silvio Wieltschnig of Austria (1hr flat) and Marta Pugnetti of Italy (1hr 15min 27sec).
