Tiers in running fever

The Rosengarten Schlern Skymarathon goes into its third round on July 13th and Tiers is already one week before the run in the sign of trail running.
For the first time a week before the race, Tiers will be all about running: from 5 to 12 July, the complete range of running shoes can be tested free of charge in cooperation with the main sponsor Dynafit and Despar Market Pircher.

The number of participants in the Rosengarten Schlern Skymarathon in Tiers is increasing daily. Some strong athletes have so far only confirmed their participation orally. Among the strongest athletes currently on the starting list of the long course are Julia Kessler and Marc Slanzi from South Tyrol and Lenka Vacvalova and Franck Manivoz. On the short course the favorites are the two Dynafit athletes Maria Koller and Daniele Felicetti.
The organizers advise not to wait any longer to secure one of the 500 starting places. The run requires physical fitness and circles the Rosengarten massif. Start is at 7 o'clock in St. Zyprian. There is a long 100% asphalt-free course with 45 kilometres and 3,000 metres of altitude to be covered and a short course with 36 kilometres and 1,000 metres of altitude to be covered.
"Thanks to the cooperation of numerous volunteers and the support of sponsors from the local economy, we are once again accommodating numerous running enthusiasts from all over Europe in Tiers on the second weekend in July," says Bernhard Rieder, OC manager of the Rosengarten Schlern Skymarathon. More than 400 runners from Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Germany, France, Great Britain, Norway, the Netherlands, Sweden and Slovakia are currently registered.
