The epic adventure around Austria's highest mountain
It is Friday, July 28, 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 4 longest solo 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). 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. 2022 showed: the relocation of the start and finish to the center of Kaprun on Salzburger Platz brought an extra amount of atmosphere for all participants and spectators. Thus, these settings will remain!
NEW in 2023: We are happy to offer you a speed trail for the first time: The Kaprun Scenic Trail (KST 15) with 14 km and 1000 m climb leads through the most scenic environments and best trails in the Kaprun valley with a great view of the Großglockner from the top of its climb. We are still working on details, everything will be on the website by the end of November.
GWT 35 and KST 15 will kick of the GGUT weekend on Friday. In 2023 again, 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 for everyone.
Looking forward to seeing you - from July 27 - 30, 2023 in Zell am See-Kaprun, Kals am Großglockner, Uttendorf-Weissee, Heiligenblut and Fusch an der Glocknerstraße.
