The marathon course along the "original" route with start and finish in Sölden covers 5500 altitude meters, leading through high Alpine areas (up to 2474 m) in Tirol (Austria) and South Tyrol (Italy).
Start in Sölden. Rather downhill towards Oetz (800 m). Then uphill to Kühtai (2020 m). Downhill stretch to Kematen and further on towards Innsbruck (600 m). Take a deep breath before you cycle up to Brenner Pass (1377 m). Downhill to Sterzing (960 m). Keep to the right, cycling uphill constantly to Jaufen Pass (2090 m). Take care on the downhill section to St. Leonhard in Passeier (700 m), followed by the big final climb to Timmelsjoch Pass (2474). The undisputed dream destination: Sölden (1377 m).
