Hairpin turns on the South Tyrolean side of the Stelvio Pass in Italy (Author: Gabri80 at it.wikipedia / public domain)


The Stelvio Marathon in Italy is set to become a classic in the international mountain running calendar.

Held in the alpine province of South Tyrol (German: Südtirol, Italian: Alto Adige), where most residents are native speakers of German, the event will offer two incredibly scenic uphill races:

  • 26km (+ 2,250m of ascent)
  • 42.195km (+ 2,350m of ascent)

Both races will start in the village of Prad am Stilfserjoch (Prato allo Stelvio) which sits at an elevation of 915 metres in the Vinschgau (Val Venosta) valley.

The marathon begins with an undulating 16km warm-up loop through the valley.

Then, the route climbs on asphalt roads, gravel roads and hiking trails up to the finish line on the Stelvio Pass (German: Stilfserjoch, Italian: Passo dello Stelvio).

Situated at 2,757 metres above sea level, the Stelvio Pass is the second-highest paved mountain pass in the Alps. It has featured ten times in the Giro d'Italia bicycle race.

The final part of the race takes the runners through the last 24 hairpin turns of the Stelvio Pass Panorama Road, one of Europe's most impressive mountain pass roads (pictured).
