Südtirol Ultra Skyrace
Region: Bozen and environs
The extreme mountain run Südtirol Ultra Skyrace goes along the “Hufeisentour” mountain trail, a wonderful high-alpine path surrounding Sarntal Valley and is one of the most challenging running events in the region.
From 26th to 28th July 2019, there will be the 7th edition of the mountain run in the Sarntal Alps. The runners can choose between four different circuits that are all running along the so-called “Hufeisentour” or horseshoe tour.
The four circuits:
- Südtirol Ultra Skyrace: 121 km | 7.554 mt. | Race duration: 40 h
- Südtirol Skyrace: 69 km | 3.930 mt. | Race duration: 19 h
- Südtirol Sky Marathon: 42,2 km | 2.863 mt. | Race duration. 12 h
- Südtirol Sky Trail: 27 km | 1.067 mt. | Race Duration: 8 h
The green event is particularly popular with the international trail running community due to the level of difficulty and the dreamlike natural landscape in the environs. Surefootedness, head for heights as well as mental and physical fitness are required for participating in this competition.
The start of the 40-hours race is in Bozen, then it goes to Ritten, over Sarner Scharte to Latzfonser Kreuz, to Penser Joch, over Gerölljoch, the Obere Scharte, along the stone cairns, Jenesien and back to Bozen. The less extreme circuits run along various sections.
The prize-giving ceremony on the Talferwiesen in Bozen will take place at 11 am on Sunday.
