Starting area of the Reschenseelauf

Route of the Resia Lake’s race

The route around the biggest
lake in South Tyrol

You will not be able to find a more beautiful place for a running event. The run around Lake Resia is exclusively on the closed footpath or cycle path and always directly along the shore.

The lake circuit is a scenic treat for every participant.
A special highlight is the crossing of the 460-metre-long imposing dam.

Track description
  • The start is in Graun at the well-known church tower in the lake, at 1,450 m above the sea level.
  • The first section of the trail is flat and runs south for about 5 km towards St. Valentin.
  • Nature lovers can enjoy the beautiful view of the highest mountain in South Tyrol, the Ortler (3,905 m), again and again on the way south.
  • Then you cross the dam wall and on the opposite side there is a slightly hilly and partly shady section towards the valley station of the Schöneben ski area up to kilometre 11.
  • The route continues to the harbour facility in Reschen.
  • On the last flat kilometres, the participants run mostly on gravel and can look forward to a direct view of Lake Resia.
  • In the background, the church tower shines in the water.
  • The spectacular finish leads past the audience to the finish.
