Pitz Alpine Glacier Trail
the event of the year

Experience THE trail running event of Austria. The individual course sections will take trail runners up to four times to the start – finish straight depending on the distance that they are running. This gives supporters the opportunity to cheer on their runners again and again at certain intervals. A dedicated program for children will provide entertainment and shorten the wait to the finish of the event. All trail running distances and registration information can be found on the Pitz Alpine Glacier Trail website (link is external)

Trail running sections concept

Based on the existing hiking routes, a special route was put together for the trail runners. At several starting points these trails are summarized on large signboards and are also available as small printed maps. The GPS coordinates and further route information can be found on our interactive map.
