The 3/4 Halbmarathon (Italian: 3/4 Mezza Maratona) is a running event held annually in August in Südtirol (Alto Adige), an autonomous province in the far north of Italy where the majority speak German as their first language.

Starting in the small town of Bruneck (Brunico) and finishing in the village of Sand in Taufers (Campo Tures), the race is an undulating 17.6km point-to-point run on traffic-free roads and cycleways along the Tauferer Tal (Val di Tures).

Snow-capped mountain peaks and several castles on the hillsides (such as Burg Neuhaus, pictured below) provide an impressive backdrop to the course.
