The epic adventure around Austria's highest mountain
It is Friday, July 29, shortly before 10 p.m. in Kaprun. Our eyes turn towards the main ridge of the Austrian Alps where the glaciers of the Kitzsteinhorn shimmer gently in the moonlight. Our
unique adventure in the heart of the Austrian Alps starts right now. Ahead of us is the tour on the "Glockner Runde" with 110 km and 6,500 m climb around the highest mountain in Austria. Mostly
on single trails we cross the Alps twice, over clear mountain creeks and along the 14 glaciers through the beautiful high alpine landscape of the National Park Hohe Tauern. The trails run through
3 federal provinces, 7 valleys and 6 villages, passing 14 glaciers and 300 peaks over 3,000m all around.
Our 5 races remain unchanged: GGUT 110 provides the whole circle around Austria's highest montain, the Großglockner (3,798 m). You may also experience parts of this adventure on Osttirol
Trail (OTT 80), Großglockner Trail (GGT 55), Weissee Geltscherwelt Trail (GWT 35) or in a team of two (GGUT 110 I 2).
The turning of the direction of the race tracks worked perfectly last year, all participants, who met the original time limits, were able to finish their races. Thus, this setting will remain.
Just in the area of Kals am Großglockner have we made a further optimization. The routes of GGUT 110, OTT 80 and GGT 55 lead, as in 2020 as a bad weather variant, over the "Glorer Hütte". The
Glorer Hütte (2,642 m) is the best point for a supply station, the route leads through beautiful flower meadows, is easier to run, is safer and offers a brilliant view at Großglockner. As in
2021, the GWT 35 will kick of the GGUT weekend on Friday.
There's great news for 2022. With the start and finish we come back to the center of Kaprun, to the Salzburger Platz, where we already had the first three editions - great atmosphere and ambience
In 2022, the GGUT will again be a get-together of top international runners and around 2000 runners from more than 40 nations. We guarantee an unforgettable experience and a nice trail weekend
Be part of it! From July 29 to 31, 2022 in Zell am See-Kaprun, Kals am Großglockner, Weissee-Uttendorf, Heiligenblut and Fusch an der Glocknerstraße.
