Ischgl Ironbike Marathon

Gruelling bike action in the Tyrolean mountains

It’s the top tier of the Ischgl Ironbike festival: the legendary Ischgl Ironbike marathon. Only the most ambitious of athletes dare to tackle this one-of-a-kind race. After all, the marathon through the impressive Silvretta mountain range is not only one of Europe’s most scenic races – it’s also one of the hardest. 

The race’s most difficult category takes participants across 76 kilometers of asphalt, gravel and single trails with an altitude difference of 3,700 metres through the impressive mountain world of Ischgl.

The Ironbike marathon is the spectacular closing event of the four-day Ischgl Ironbike – and a real highlight for both athletes and spectators.
