Rosengarten Schlern Sky Marathon

The mountain marathon starts in Tires al Catinaccio and then circles the legendary Catinaccio Group

The Rosengarten Schlern Sky Marathon (Rosengarten is the German name for the Catinaccio, Schlern for Mt. Sciliar) is one of the highlights in the South Tyrolean sports calendar. The race itself is challenging - the route covers 45 kilometres and 3,000 metres in altitude - and the surroundings are breathtaking. The mountain marathon circles the entire Catinaccio Group, the setting of the legend of King Laurin and his Rose Garden: In mid-July, the route leads from San Cipriano at 1,136 metres a.s.l., more precisely from the valley station of the new convertible cable car, into challenging alpine terrain. The Fronza alle Coronelle Mountain Hut is also on the route, as are the Monte Cavone, the Molignon Pass, Mt. Sciliar and the Gola del Diavolo resp. the Prügelweg path.

Then the route leads back to Tires village. The highest point is the Passo Principe at 2,630 m a.s.l. Alternatively, there is also a shorter route of 36 km, which is partly on asphalt: On the original route, the athletes do not get to see any asphalt. The award ceremony takes place in the late afternoon. The event is organised by the OK team in collaboration with the Tires Tourist Office and the main sponsor Dynafit. Participation is open to any person of legal age from home and abroad in possession of a medical certificate - max. 500 participants are admitted to the race.
