Only a few more starting positions left.
Last year’s winner Mr. Tariq Baraamouf, serial winning woman Mrs. Edeltaud Thaler, serial winner Mr. Hannes Rungger, winner of the marathon in 2016 Mrs. Simonetta Menestrina, world champion of the Ultramarathon and also serial winner of the “100km del Passatore” Mr. Giorgio Calcaterra and the extreme mountaineer Mrs. Billie Bierling. All those professional athletes will be part of the 2018 marathon run to the Plose Mountain challenging to finish the run again as a winner.
Around 360 single runners of 22 different nations signed in to the 9th edition of the magnificent Brixen Dolomites Marathon. This year South Africa and Chile will be part of it. For the category scale run already teams sent their inscriptions, therefore there are only a few positions left. All last minute deciding athletes should hurry up to snatch a remaining participation ticket for the unique sports event on the great Plose Mountain.
The magnificent marathon is leading the runners from the cathedral square in Brixen city for 42,195 km and 2450 meters of altitude through grassland, fields, forests and alpin terrain to finish on the top of the Plose mountain. This is famous as a magnificent and unique sports event for its uncomparable panorama and the perfect organisation.
Also this year more than 400 volunteers will be in charge of a smooth process of the event. Furthermore they will support all athletes during the whole marathon, from the start in Brixen, along the running road up the mountain until the finish on the top of the Plose Mountain.
Christoph Hofer is in charge of them and is happy to be so. “It’s not just the many clubs and associations, without which this endeavor would be completely unmanageable. There are also more and more private individuals who enjoy the event and want to be a part of it, and because of that, they support us by volunteering their time.” The volunteers put so much commitment into it that a little bit of competition has even arisen among the eighteen aid stations along the route as to who can take the best care of the athletes.
