Start your journey on the slopes of King Ortler, cross the glacier at sunrise and climb the exposed Tabarettascharte at 2900m. After that, you descend to Trafoi valley at 1600m before crossing the Ortler at the old mines of Zumpanell and turning back home through the forests of Stelvio National Park to the finish line in the warm heart of Sulden.

Mountain experience strongly recommended. Trail at high altitude. Close to no asphalt, mostly single track. Glacier with ice and rocks. Snow patches present. Not very technical, but significant exposed moutainsides and almost no cover from weather throughout the day. Several locations to drop out in case of emergency.

Support

You don't have to run alone! Share your GPS Live Tracking link with your loved ones! As a fully fledged ski resort Sulden and Trafoi have a host of chairlifts, the biggest cable railway in the Alps and a gondola to bring your loved ones on the track so they can support you on your journey. They can follow you with binoculars when you descend down the slopes of Mount Ortler or climb up the gruesome Passo dello Stelvio while having a drink at one of the many mountain huts on the track.

Detailed info

Checkpoints & Time barriers

For both practical and safety reasons we rely on a live GPS-tracking service. Each refreshment station has a defined closing time which you can find in the table above. This counts both as an indication for the last participant and a time barrier for participants at which they’ll have to discontinue the race. Participants arriving after closing time will have to continue to the nearest drop-out point and hand over their number.

Medical Support

Medical support will be available at the aid station locations indicated in the table above. During the race the Sulden Mountain Rescue Team (Bergrettung Sulden) will provide on-track assistance on specific locations depending on the weather circumstances. Because mountain weather is unpredictable, this info will be released only days before the race.

Rules & Regulations

Running in the mountains is a dance between Eros & Thanatos. We can easily be enchanted by its beauty, but we should always be aware of the risks involved. We are guests in nature, so we have to take our responsibility. Please familiarize yourself with our rules (as you are required) before entering the event.
