From July 21 to 23, 2017 Austria's highest mountain, the Grossglockner (3.798 m), is the place to be for trail runners and friends of mountain sports. DYNAFIT, Zell am See-Kaprun, Kals am
Grossglockner und Uttendorf are happy to welcome more than 1000 runners from more than 40 nations at the 3rd edition of Grossglockner ULTRA-TRAIL®.
GGUT 110 km is a unique adventure in a fascinating scenery and landscape. The race means a major challenge for all trail
runners: The track around Grossglockner with start and finish in Kaprun leads over 110 km and 6500 m in climb, crossing alp passes twice, leading through 7 valleys, 3 provinces, and along 14
glaciers, surrounded by 300 peaks higher than 3000 m.
Besides the whole tour around Grossglockner, we also offer the following races (all following parts of the GGUT trails):

Dorfer Tal, crossing the Alps at Kalser Tauern through the magnificent Weissee Gletscherwelt to the finish in Kaprun.
WEISSEE GLETSCHERWELT TRAIL leads over 30 km and 1000 m climb through the magnificent Weissee Gletscherwelt to the finish in
GGUT 110 I 2 provides the option to run GGUT 110 as a team relay, thereby offering the first runner to explore the challenging part
1 of GGUT 110.
All 4 races lead through a unique alpine high altitude landscape in the national park "Hohe Tauern". All tracks are mostly above 2000 m with passes higher than 2600 m (GGUT 110 in addition one
with 2800 m). All trails are selective and technically demanding, longer experience in long distance running is a pre-condition for GGUT 110, experience in moving in high mountainous regions a
condition for all races.
