The Ischgl Ironbike Marathon represents the elite of mountain biking, a challenge that only the boldest and most ambitious athletes take on. Like the smugglers of old, who mastered the hidden paths of the Silvretta mountains with skill and endurance, the participants take on a route that is notorious throughout Europe not only for its beauty but also for its toughness.
The most demanding category of the Ischgl Ironbike takes cyclists over 71 kilometres and 3,200 metres in altitude. Like the smugglers' trails that connect Ischgl with Samnaun, the Ironbike Marathon also offers a varied route: from tarmac to gravel to challenging trails. The route is lined with the impressive mountain scenery that gives this marathon its legendary character and is reminiscent of the times when the area was still criss-crossed by mysterious smugglers' trails.
|Start/finish||Ischgl, parking place Silvrettabahn (1.379 m)|
