What you get

The quality of an event depends on you, volunteers. Participants have always been very grateful about our good volunteers. When you're part of the Ortler Sky Trails crew, we take care of you, so you have an unforgettable experience to look back to when going home.

Meet Max

At Ortler Sky Trails you can meet (and smell) our one and only Canitrail Director Max the Mountain Dog! During the year he lives in Switzerland and he's probably climbed a lot more mountains than you. Paw signatures can be negotiated for cookies.

Friends for Life

This is a fantastic chance to meet like-minded people from around the world and build lasting friendships in the trail running community.

Support Opportunities

Grab a unique opportunity to support your family and friends in overcoming their challenge! They'll be happy to see your face at a refreshment post.

Beautiful Landscapes

Spend your time in one of the most beautiful landscapes at the foot of Mount Ortler! Stelvio National Park has an abundance of enchanting flora and fauna.

Basic Accommodation

Stay at the heart of the action! We can provide basic accommodation close to the spot so you don't have to worry. For some tasks you'll be staying in a mountain hut or a tent for a night.

Food & Drinks

No counting calories! We make sure there's plenty of healthy food and drinks so you get the energy you need to survive your stay in the mountains.

Crew Shirt

Being part of the crew means wearing our awesome “Ortler Sky Trails” crew T-Shirt with pride! If you want to make sure to get the right size, register early!

What you do

Give back to the trail running community and make people aware of the importance of preserving our natural abundance by volunteering at our events! Use your skills in your team of choice to make this event more awesome! Organizing a multi-day multi-location event is not a simple small feat, but lots of fun and an unforgettable experience!

Waymarking Team

Put up signage and banners before the event during awesome hikes in the enchanting Stelvio National Park and collect them afterwards.

Info Team

Are you fluent in English, Italian or German? Be a beacon to participants, inform them and answer their questions at key locations during the event!

Medical Team

Are you a healthcare professional? Doctors, nurses, paramedics, physiotherapists, this is your team! You will work in cooperation with the Mountain Rescue and White Cross to make sure our participants are safe and healthy.

Refreshment Post Team

Raise the banners, fill up the water tanks, cut fruit, encourage participants and help them refuel and clean up after closing time!

Catering Team

Imagine running a marathon. You'd be hungry. Imagine running a double marathon over mountains. You'd be **very** hungry. Participants will be begging you for food and you will be their saviour.

Start / Finish Team

The Tennis Hall will be our homebase during the event. Put up tents, banners, get the tables, benches and chairs, collect participant bags and clean up after the event!

Race Desk Team

Are you fluent in English, Italian or German and good at communication? Man the emergency telephone and keep an eye on the participant live tracking system!

Transport Team
