3000 meters of altitude difference on a 45-kilometer dirt track: this is the great challenge of the Rosengarten Schlern Skymarathon. Distance that only Andreas Reiterer of Avelengo, double Italian trail running champion, managed to cover in less than five hours.

Also on July 9, 2022 the list of participants will be composed of both athletes and amateur sportsmen. Estonia will also be represented in this year's edition. For the first time in fact there will be two athletes from this nation alongside the runners from Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Great Britain, France and the United States.
The departure is scheduled at 7 am on a large uphill lawn, so as to start heating immediately. Along the way there are numerous refreshment points, and the first goal to be set is the passage, by 12.30, to the control point under the Passo Principe, at 2,601 meters above sea level.
This time limit applies to all athletes who have chosen the long route, because from this point the detour for the short route of 36 kilometers and 2,000 meters in altitude starts, which, through the Val Ciamin and the Oberstraße, leads to the finish line in the center of Tires. If an athlete who has chosen the long route does not reach this checkpoint within the established time, he will be diverted to the short route and will not be qualified.
The time normally taken by athletes to cover the 45 kilometers of competition is five or six hours, while for amateur sportsmen there is a maximum limit of ten hours. Those who do not cross the finish line by 5 pm, will not be classified.
Once the finish line has been reached, participants will be able to forget the great effort of the race by taking advantage of their meal voucher on the town square, enjoying the splendid scenery of the Catinaccio Group.

The long route of 45 kilometres with a 2,980 metre ascent and a 3,083 metre descent leads over the Cigolade Pass (variant towards Ciamedie and Gardeccia if unviable), the Passo Principe/Grasleitenpass and the Molignon Pass to the Sciliar; after the Devil's Gorge - also known as the Prügelweg – a final ascent leads up to the Tschafon before the finish line in the centre of the village of Tiers.
Due to its length and the difference in altitude it is a mountain marathon. The name "Sky Marathon" describes the length and alpine characteristics of the trail run at over 2,000 metres.
