The Hochpustertal Run is a cross-border running event that begins in Italy and ends in Austria.

It is held each summer in the Hochpustertal, the eastern part of the Pustertal (Italian: Val Pusteria), a 100km-long valley in the Tyrol region in the Alps.

Two point-to-point races are availble:

  • 12.1km Classic Run
  • 21.1km Halbmarathon (Italian: Mezza Maratona)

Both races follow the cycle route that connects Italy's autonomous province of South Tyrol (where most people speak German as a first language) with Austria's province of East Tyrol.

The route is undulating and overall a bit downhill (about 100 metres of elevation loss), starting at 1,172 metres above sea level in the resort of Innichen (Italian: San Candido) and finishing at an elevation of 1,073 metres in the small town of Sillian.

The 21.1km half marathon consists of the 12.1km Classic Run plus a 9km out-and-back run along the cycleway (partly on gravel) between Sillian and the village of Tassenbach.
