The first edition of the Ortler-Bike marathon, which is organized by passionate bikers for bikers, takes place on the 6th June 2015 in the Venosta Valley in the west of South Tyrol. The middle and upper Venosta Valley are known for its various bike tours and as a matter of fact it forms the perfect venue for the race.

The marathon offers two different routes. Both are near to the monastery, castles, mountain lakes, and go through beautiful mountain villages. The small medieval city Glorenza forms the starting and arrival point of the marathon.
