Consisting of four iconic distances, the Mayrhofen Ultraks blends the pure values of trail running with one of the most spectacular mountain scenery you can find, the high-alpine terrain of Upper Zillertal Valley.
On September 11, 2021, elite and recreational participants get to experience an unforgettable trail experience with close-ups of dominant Three-Thousanders named Ahornspitze, Kolm, Grindberg and Tristner. The 2021 Mayrhofen Ultraks features four distances: “Sprint” for young adults and those new to the sport (7K, 350m vertical gain); “Short” to inspire new runners to surpass their expectations (14.5K, 900m vertical gain); “Middle” for advanced trail runners (30.3K; 2,000m vertical gain); and “Long” to drive seasoned runners to new limits (50K, 3,200m vertical gain). This year, we’re excited to welcome future trail runners to a fun kid’s event, the 1.5K “Mini Ultraks”.
Beginning and ending at Europahaus Building in in the heart of Mayrhofen, the Ultraks sends runners through and around Upper Zillertal Valley’s unmistakable high-alpine terrain. Spectators can come out and cheer on their favourite athletes along the course or follow the competitions on a big screen in the start and finish area. There will be a varied entertainment program. Moreover, the Mayrhofen gondolas bring spectators to the best viewing locations.
