The Alpe di Siusi Half Marathon on 7th July in Compatsch, South Tyrol (Italy)
Entries are open – limited number of participants: 700. Registration fee: 40 euros until 23rd June 2019.
The winter nights are lighted up by the Moonlight Classic torches. But on 7th July, the 7th edition of Alpe di Siusi Half Marathon will offer a unique race on the largest plateau in Europe.
Registrations for the event in South Tyrol (Italy) are open and runners can get a bib in view of the half marathon, which will take place on a 21,097km track with 601 meters of difference in height. Compatsch, which is situated in the heart of the Dolomites – UNESCO World Heritage Site, is ready for a unique and spectacular experience. On Alpe di Siusi sport is in harmony with nature thanks to separate waste collection, waste reduction, use of eco-friendly means of transport, distribution of local and organic food, social responsibility and intelligent use of energy and water. The event was recently rated as “GreenEvent” by the Autonomous Province of Bolzano and received a special prize for sustainable sports events at the “Green Events Austria Gala” in 2014 and 2015 in Vienna and in 2017 in Salzburg. It is a special prize for the “sports events that stood out for their sustainable organization”. It will be good to hurry, the Alpe di Siusi Half Marathon is a spectacular and exciting race, but the number of participants is limited to 700; the registration fee is 40 euros by June 23rd 2019 (45 euros from June 24th).
Also in 2019 the race is offered together with the Moonlight Classic, which takes place on 23rd January. Cross-country skiing and running are not so different; all those who complete either the 30 or the 15 kilometre track of the Moonlight Classic and the Alpe di Siusi Half-Marathon will be entered into the combined Alpe di Siusi Ski & Run ranking with the total of their two race times. The leitmotiv is the same: Alpe di Siusi must be fully lived, starting with the two classic sports events in South Tyrol, on the plateau “for all seasons”.
