Montafon Arlberg Marathon

For the first time, this year’s edition of the renowned Montafon Arlberg Marathon takes its more than 700 participants from St. Anton am Arlberg throughout the Verwall Valley to Silbertal in Vorarlberg’s Montafon Valley.

Surrounded by untouched nature, the federal state border between Tyrol and Vorarlberg marks the highest point of this spectacular run at 1,945 metres. At a total length of 42 kilometres and a difference in height of 1,250 metres, the unique routing includes alpine forest roads and hiking trails. Aside from the classic marathon distance, running enthusiasts can choose between the shorter T33 trail or the panorama run at 14.8 kilometres recommended for novices. The children’s trail invites young runners to compete in five different age classes.
