Südtirol Drei Zinnen Alpine Run
Sports. Emotion. Nature.
Sesto and its mountains.
A great love that reinvents itself again and again and still offers many sports challenges. The “Südtirol Drei Zinnen Alpine Run”, a mountain run in Sesto, will celebrate its 20th anniversary in September 2017. Professional and amateur runners from over 20 nations face this unique stamina test every year and handle the demanding track from the village of Sesto via Moso, through the Val Fiscalina, high up to the Comici hut and the Pian di Cengia hut to the finishing line in front of the Locatelli hut. The run covers a distance of 17.5 km, with a height difference of 1,350 metres. Pure sports, emotion and nature. The fastest runners complete this extreme challenge in less than 90 minutes! And: The fan club of the Sesto mountain run is growing every year, so that all 1,000 participant slots are usually sold out far in advance. A real sports highlight – and not only because of the unique mountain scenery. The professional organisation of the team around President Gottfried Hofer is surely one of the reasons that this event is so popular. It also shows that the people of Sesto are proud of their mountains: The race is supported by approximately 250 highly motivated helpers – more or less half of the village!
