Bike & Running in Venosta Valley

Sport Events

The annual sports events Ortler Bike Marathon, Stelvio Marathon and Lake Resia Run are becoming more and more popular. Far beyond the borders of Italy, these events are well known and enjoy a growing number of participants and a wider audience every year.

The head of the organizing committee, Gerald Burger, and his team work tirelessly on new ideas to make the events even better. Every detail is planned and perfected and in June it’s time again: the starting shots for the events drop in succession.

Sommer Stilfserjoch

Stilfserjoch Stelvio Night,
Light & Food

The queen of the alpine passes by night

On 30 June 2023, the legendary Stelvio road will be closed to motorised traffic for the first half of the night and will be completely open to cyclists and pedestrians.

The last seven kilometres of the ‘Berghotel Franzenshöhe’ before the summit will be magically illuminated by indirect lighting to show participants the way to the 2,757-metre peak.

Experience the first edition of ‘Challenge your menu’ and enjoy regional specialities at five different catering points along the route from Trafoi to the summit of the pass.

Whether on foot, by (E-)bike or other non-motorised means of transport; everyone is invited to take an enjoyable journey along the Stelvio Pass road at night on June 30, 2023.
