The annual Innsbruck Alpine Trail Run Festival celebrates the trail running lifestyle and is the pinnacle celebration of trail running in Europe.
Off the roads and well-trodden paths and enveloped by majestic mountain beauty, trail runners will find some of the best singletrack running they’ll come across, with courses ranging from 14 to 103 kilometers and up to 4,400 nasty vertical meters to tackle. Take on to trail systems that are known for their serene and scenic atmosphere. Starting at the heart of Tirol’s capital Innsbruck on September 9, 2021, it’s just you, the trail, and the challenge of competing against like-minded athletes. The Trail Run Festival was originally due to take place in May but has been rescheduled for September due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Apart from individual competition, there will be team relay events for friends, associations or companies. To enhance the experience, the different sections of the courses will be mapped with a GPS device. Held for the third time in a row, the Innsbruck Night Trail is a 7K run with an elevation gain of 373 meters that will start at 6:00pm on September 9, 2021.
Fans, friends and family can cheer up contestants at six different stations by means of a convenient bus shuttle service. Moreover, there will be an IATF expo area for all those interested in the sport.
