6. Mezza Maratona del Lago di Caldaro 2011
Kalterer See/Lago di Caldaro (Italy), Sunday 3 April 2011
Within five years, the half marathon around Lake Kaltern has become one of the major road running events in South Tyrol, a largely German-speaking province in the far north of Italy.
Last year, nearly 500 runners completed the half marathon course which consists of two laps around the lake, and 140 competitors finished the "Panoramalauf" (one lap of 10.55km).
The top half marathon finishers were Said Boudalia (1:08:24) and Maria Conceição Lopes (1:19:58).
Lake Kaltern is located 20 kilometres to the south of the city of Bolzano. Although deep in the Alps, the lake is at an elevation of just 215 metres, surrounded by apple orchards and vineyards.
The route is mildly undulating.
