Amazing in its terrain, the challenging Glacier Trail Run utilizes the highest peaks of Ötztal Valley and offers four race distance options, a Top Mountain Run and a Kids’ Run.
This premier endurance race series utilizes the unique and amazingly beautiful glacier terrain of Upper Ötztal Valley, where entrants must travel above 3,000 meters of elevation. The longest route, the 62K Glacier Trail, is one tough race and a formidable challenge. Requiring a combination of endurance, strength, and technique, the 61.1K climbs grueling 3,600 meters and is for experienced mountain runners only. The second race option, the 42K Marathon Trail is also physically demanding races with many meters of climbing on your legs. Its sister races, the 26K and 14K Glacier Trails are less challenging. Little ones can join the Widi Trail Run (four options between 200 meters and 1.5K). All races take place on Saturday, July 22, 2023 and start in the village center of Obergurgl. One day earlier, avid runners can opt for the 6.3K Top Mountain Run.
