For years, many famous African athletes choose Europe's largest mountain pasture as training camp due to its optimal altitude from 1,800 to 2,300m. With at least two training sessions a day the marathon runners from Kenya will prepare for the match season.

The optimal altitude of the Alpe di Siusi offers the perfect conditions for a temporary, more elevated psycho-physical performance level. The high altitude training has also favourable effects on the athlete’s resistance in the plain.
