Brixen Dolomiten Marathon:

This mountain running event takes place in the Dolomites in Italy's northernmost province of South Tyrol where most people speak German as a first language.

The route is 42.2km long and features 2,450 metres of ascent. You can choose to take the challenge as an individual or as part of a relay team of two or four.

Starting at an elevation of 560 metres at the Cathedral of Brixen (Italian: Bressanone), an old town squeezed into the narrow valley of the Eisack river, the marathon is run on a mix of asphalt roads, gravel roads and single-track trails.

The finish line is at the Plosehütte (Italian: Rifugio Plose), a mountain hostel that sits at 2,448 metres above sea level on the greeen ridge of Mount Plose.

Runners are given eight hours to complete the course. It is not allowed to use hiking poles.
