On the Trail of the Mountain Marathon
The Brixen Dolomites Marathon is one of the most beautiful mountain runs of Europe.
The view at the Dolomites, the main chain of the alps and the view at the city Brixen fascinates all the participants and visitors. The spectacular mountain scenery, a 360° panoramic view at the finish make you forget all your efforts of the marathon. The run takes place each year at the end of June.
