After being cancelled in 2022 due to a tragic accident, the Skymarathon Rosengarten Schlern will return to the racing calendar on 8 July 2023. You can save on registration until 31 May.
The maximum field of 500 runners has almost been reached due to the numerous confirmations from the previous year, which is why the organizers advise not to wait any longer to register.

45 kilometres without asphalt and 3000 metres in altitude difference – this is the challenge at the Skymarathon Rosengarten Schlern on 8 July 2023 in Tiers.

Registration for the sixth edition of the Rosengarten Schlern Skymarathon on 8 July 2023 is open. The aim of the organizers is not to organize a mass event, but to give a maximum of 500 mountain running enthusiasts an unforgettable nature and sports experience.

Small but nice is the motto of the Rosengarten Schlern Skymarathon. 45 kilometres without asphalt and 3000 metres in altitude, that is the challenge at this Skymarathon on 8 July 2023, which the three-time Italian champion in trail running Andreas Reiterer from South Tyrol has so far been the only one to have managed under a time of five hours.

Rosengarten Schlern Skymarathon 2022 cancelled

Due to a tragic death in the OC team, the entire village is in mourning.
In consultation with partners and sponsors, it was decided to cancel the Rosengarten Schlern Skymarathon 2022. "It is always tragic when a person is torn out of life in the middle of life. In a small village like Tiers, where practically the entire village community works on the run on a voluntary basis, the decision to cancel the run is absolutely justified", says Heiner Oberrauch, President of Operalp Group, which owns the band of the main sponsor Dynafit.

Around 350 runners from 15 nations were registered. Since many runners from abroad have already booked their stay, some local runners will meet at 7.00 a.m. at the parking lot opposite the Hotel Cyprianer Hof to tackle the route with interested parties in smaller groups on their own without timekeeping, without safety officers and without refreshment stations.

"We ask for everyone's understanding for the cancellation. The entire village is involved in this event, and given the tragic circumstances, it is inconceivable to hold the Rosengarten Schlern Skymarathon 2022," explains david Rieder, president of the tourist board.
Registration will be automatically transferred to July 8, 2023, unless a refund of the entry fee is requested.


The Rosengarten Schlern Skymarathon is a jewel among the mountain runs. On July 9, Tiers will become the Mecca of trail runners.
The goal: 45 kilometers and 3000 meters of altitude difference without asphalt in 5 hours for top athletes, but also in six, seven, eight, nine and a maximum of ten hours, for all those who do not want to keep their eyes on the rather technical ground while running, but also want to enjoy the unique panorama in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites.
