Trail running in South Tyrol

Running over rough ground on steep trails… trail running is becoming more and more popular in South Tyrol, not only among professional athletes.

Some athletic mountaineers do not “only” want to reach the summit – they prefer going rapidly and climbing as many meters as possible in the shortest time possible. The many mountain runs that have become competitions in South Tyrol are most of the time open for everyone, as long as they are fit and healthy.

You should in all cases be well-trained, as the cardiovascular system, bones and joints will have to be stronger than during running or classic mountain hiking. Of course, sure-footedness, a good shape and endurance are necessary in alpine heights too.
