Innichen (Italy) - Sillian (Austria), Saturday 2 July 2011
Start is in Innichen (San Candido) on the Italian side of the border.
This summer evening running event in the Alps starts in Italy and finishes in Austria. Runners choose between the half marathon and the 12.1k "Classic Run".
Competitors run along the cycleway that follows the River Drava in the green Hochpustertal (Hochpuster Valley). From start to finish, the route drops about 100 metres in elevation.
The start is in Innichen (Italian: San Candido), a popular holiday destination situated at an elevation of 1172 metres at the foot of the breathtaking Sexten Dolomites. Although in Italy, most people in this region speak German as a first language. Both races finish in the village of Sillian in Austria.
Participants in the 12.1k race run directly from Innichen to Sillian. Half marathon runners, however, carry on to the village of Tassenbach, from where they run back to Sillian.
In 2010, Edmund Lahner (37:35) and Donatella Vinci (46:44) celebrated victory in the 12.1k race. The half marathon winners were Markus Hohenwarter (1:08:14) and Marina Zanardi (1:23:54)
