THE TRACK: First things first: the new K110 route keeps as challenging as ever. The main difference, compared to the original track, is the direction, which is clockwise now:

After the start the route leads into the beautiful Sillschlucht, where you should be careful due to some lean parts, especially at night. Followed by a slow uphill along the river Sill till the Stollensteig to Telfes, where the first aid station is waiting for you (km 14). Now we are getting higher, still on wonderful trails, first with steep climbs-, than on level to the next aid station at Mutterer Alm (km 25) next to a water reservoir. Aftwerwards, follows a tricky part, which hasn’t been runnable due to old snow and danger of avalanches. The Götzner Graben and the downhill to the aid station Birgitz (km 34) marks the next highlight and the end of Innsbruck’s southside part. Like ever the route guides through the Inntal, up to the first kilometres on the Nordkette. From now on challenging and technical up- and downhills are waiting till the next aid station at Höttinger Bild (km 47,5). There you can pick up your drop bag as well. The track leads further on the Nordkette and passes more of Innsbruck’s highlights, such as the Umbrüggler Alm, the Arzler Alm, the Thaurer Schlössl and the aid station at church Romedius (km 59). The next kilometre up to and after Hall are relatively even and perfect to get some kilometres done. After passing the historical town Hall the route guides again on the southside of Innsbruck and after the aid station Herzsee (km 72,6) parts away from the K85. This loop proofs how fit you really are. A perfect mix of technical trails, from the Rinner Alm, across the Almenweg to the Sistranser Alm. The following part is really interesting: Due to some closed paths we needed to change the routes slightly. We use this situations to create a benefit for you. We lead you higher than before up to 2100m and on the famos “Zirbenweg” one of the most beautiful hiking trails in Tyrol. Enjoy the view down to Innsbruck, most of the positive vertical meters are done and to the finishline its mostly downhill. But save some energy for this part – the downhill is tricky in some parts. Passing to the station of the “Patscherkofel Bahn”, trough the beautiful Ullwald to Lans and almost on the way down to Innsbruck right to the finish.

A little bit different, a bit shorter and fewer high meters, but still super tough and the ultimate challenge for each season. We are super excited for the premiere of the K110 – especially right now after upgrading your route up to the Zirbenweg <3

THE TRACK: In general, the K85 route is as challenging as before. Through the chance of the venue the route will be structured a little bit different and will be run clockwise:

After the start the route leads into the beautiful Sillschlucht, where you should be careful due to some lean parts, especially at night. Followed by a slow uphill along the river Sill till the Stollensteig to Telfes, where the first aid station is waiting (km 14). Afterward it gets higher in term of altitude, still on wonderful trails, first steep, than on the level to the next aid station at Mutterer Alm (km 25), next to a water reservoir. Followed by a tricky part, which often couldn’t be run in spring because of old snow and danger of avalanches. The Götzner Graben and the downhill to the aid station Birgitz (km34) marks the next highlight and the end of the loop on Innsbruck’s southside. Like ever we are running through the Inntal to the first kilometres on the Nordkette. From now on challenging and technical up- and downhills are waiting, till the next aid station at Höttinger Bild (km 47,5), where you can pick up your drop bag as well. The track leads further on the Nordkette and passes more of Innsbruck’s highlights, such as the Umbrüggler Alm, the Arzler Alm, the Thaurer Schlössl and the aid station at church Romedius (km 59). The next kilometre after Hall are relatively even and perfect to get some kilometres done. After passing the historical town Hall the route leads again on the southside of Innsbruck and after the aid station Herzsee (km 72,6) the final kilometres to Innsbruck begin. Passing Aldrans and into the Lanser forest , mostly downhill on great trails  to Innsbruck, where the finish line at the Olypiaworld is finally waiting.

A little bit shorter, fewer high meters, but in general still a tough loop around Innsbruck with a great mix from technical and flowing- trail parts.

THE TRACK: Our classic, a whole loop around Innsbruck, no matter where you start and in which direction you are going it’s always a pleasure. Not as technical and challenging as the longer distances, but a beautiful Ultra with a lot of panoramic views.

Directly after the start it gets into the beautiful Sillschlucht, there you should be careful on the leaner parts. Slowly upwards, following the river Sill till Gärberbach up to Natters and to the first aid station Natterer See (km 11,8). Refreshed and still on the plateau enjoying the Akademikersteig before the aid station Birgitz (km 16,9).

Like ever the route guides through the Inntal to the fist kilometres on the Nordkette. Now the beautiful Stangensteig is waiting, which will be run in the opposite direction than last year, what makes it even more beautiful, to the next aid station Höttinger Bild (km 30). Still at the Nordkette and passing more touristic hotspots like the Umbrüggler Alm, the Arzler Alm, the castle Thaur and the aid station church Romedius (km 41,5). The next kilometres to hall are relatively even and easy to run. After passing the historical town of Hall the loop leads again on the southside of Innsbruck and after the aid station Herzsee (km 55,1) the final kilometres to Innsbruck begin. After passing Aldrans and into the Lanser forest the hard deserved finish line is waiting.

A different direction, a little bit shorter, fewer high meters, but still a great ultra. It doesn’t matter if you new to Ultra or a speed machine it’s a great distance with great profile – be excited for the K65.

THE TRACK: Fasten your seatbelt – we have something really special for you. Due to the change of the venue we had to redesign the K42. And we haven’t only succeeded this challenge – we upgraded it, so it is even better than before! After the start in Kranebitten, it gets in the original direction, first slowly up but still fast to Birgitz to the first aid station (km 8). Now we are on a section of the route which was always reserved for the Ultra Distances. The long uphill to the Mutter Alm is not only challenging, but a real highlight with the Götzner Graben. Rewarded with a great view on the water reservoir, shortly before the aid station Mutterer Alm (km 16). Followed by the beautiful Höhenweg down on the amazing and technical downhill to Telfes, where the next aid station is waiting (km 25). Now it gets mostly downwards to Innsbruck. First on the Stollensteig and later in the Sillschlucht where you should always be careful at some leaner parts. Between the two, we have the last aid station on the ÖAMTC area (km 36). After that the only thing waiting is the finish line at the Olypiaworld Innsbruck.

Some high meters more, but a massive upgrade at the single trail part. Get excited for the new K42. Challenging and beautiful – we are impressed and you will be too😉.

THE TRACK: Due to the change of the venue and the corona regulations, we had to plan a new K25. The K25 will take place on Sunday, and leads from Kranebitten to the aid station Birgitz and on the original route to the Nattere Lake. But this time it’s not the finish sprint but rather the last challenge before the next refreshment, sorry 😉. Followed by a new, beautiful part of the route. Afterwards the first kilometres of the K42, the route guides you to Natters and down to Gärberbach. We wish you lots of fun in the beautiful Sillschlucht. Technical, not as easy as you might think, but a real highlight on the new route. Be careful at the leaner parts! The finish line is at the main venue Olympiaworld. Have fun 😉.

A little bit shorter and with less profile as the original, but with a few highlights a really cool trail.

THE TRACK: Due to the change of the venue and the corona regulations, we had to plan a new K15. The K15 will take place on Sunday and will follow the original route from Hall to Innsbruck, but this time in the opposite direction. Unfortunately, you will miss the oldtown of Hall directly after the start and the popular platform up to the edge of the forest in the middle of the midday heat – sorry 😉. However, the route will start with a nice uphill on beautiful trails including a great view to Hall and the Nordkette.  It’s general a little bit more technical, but still perfect if you are new to trailrunning. After the aid station Herzsee and a short run on the same altitude it gets downhill towards Innsbruck, where you can mentally prepare for the finish line at Olypiaworld.

A similar profile as the old K15, but a little bit more trail. Perfect for all, who are the first time on a trail, or want to run the 15km really fast- have fun 😊
