Fight against ALS

be the change

The global Ice Bucket Challenge, in which people from all over the world were pouring a bucket of ice-cold water over themselves, has put ALS on the map and triggered a tsunami of research projects. With the help of our participants, volunteers and sympathizers the Ortler Sky Trails support the funding of research on ALS. And you can be a part of this!

About Us

how it started what we stand for

To better accomodate the trail running audience, Ortler Sky Trails grew as a separate independant event out of the Ortler Mountain Challenge for ALS, an event organized to create awareness about ALS and gather funds for ALS research. We love the mountains and we want to share the experiences they gave us with everyone wo can run! Sulden am Ortler is the perfect place to host this spectacular event and the Ortler is the perfect mountain range for the multifaceted trail tracks to put your strength and perseverance to the test.
