BOclassic South Tyrol

The International New Year’s Eve Run BOclassic starts and ends directly at the Bolzano Christmas Market on the Walther Square

The event is an institution - since 1974 the year has been brought to a sporty end in Bolzano. Runners from all over the world meet in the provincial capital on December 31 to compete in the Raiffeisen BOclassic South Tyrol, which starts and ends at the central Walther Square. It is the last day of the year, when in the afternoon the athletes first run through the Bolzano Christmas Market, cross the historic old town with Piazza delle Erbe and Via dei Portici, reach the Piazza della Stazione and then - after exactly 1,250 metres - can be seen again at Piazza Walther.

This is repeated exactly 8 times for the top athletes of the BOclassic Elite, the other categories do fewer laps: Among them are the BOclassic Handbike, which does four laps, and the Just for Fun event for everyone. As soon as dusk falls over the Bolzano Christmas Market and the lights go on, the award ceremony for the elite runs takes place. And afterwards it's time to celebrate. By the way: The BOclassic South Tyrol is the annual start of the South Tyrol Top 7 running series, which also includes the new Lake Caldaro Run in March and the Lake Resia Run in July.
