The idea to create a unique and extraordinary melody for this equally unique and extraordinary mountain marathon in order to give a voice to its spirit and emotions goes back to the early editions. Together with Marie and Johannes Mur, Eva Ellemunter and Christian Jocher wanted to find a songwriter who was able turn this melody into a real hymn. Philipp Burger from the band Frei.Wild, who was himself born in Brixen, was enthusiastic about the idea to write text and lyrics for the Brixen Dolomites Marathon. Here the text of the new hymn.

Foto Philipp Burgerthe road is stony
the way won’t be easy
but every destination
will be reached soon or late
watching the sky
no step backwards
all for all
but eventually everyone alone

gelid wind
pain always hurting
and the destination that high
we feel free
step by step
let’s leave
and the run begins
the run begins

Everyone is a winner
there are no losers
soon or late
we meet at destination
Run to the limits

challenged by the wind
hunted by pain
it won’t be easy
but we remain tough
before failing
we stop just one moment
we want to give our best

our pulse, our breath
our fight against the spirit
our weaker self
that rebels and bites
we go on running
we do not stop
at destination the flag will blow for all of us

Everyone is a winner
there are no losers
soon or late
we meet at destination
Run to the limits

Hymn of the Brixen Dolomites Marathon
