Climb the feet of King Ortler beneath the Langenstein Lift while your friends and loved ones are cheering right above you in the lift towards the top station where they can drink and laugh with your misery. Show them how strong you are and continue on the slopes of the mountain to the Marlt Madonna statue for the most spectacular finish view of a lifetime! Legend has it that the statue improves your fertility, so run with protection!
Very steep ascent until Langenstein top station. Not very technical. Some parts exposed.
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.
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 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.read full rules
