Start of the Osttirol Trail (OTT 80) is on Enzingerboden (1,483 m) at the ground station of the Weissee Gletscherwelt cable car. From there via the middle station of the cable car directly to the Rudolfshütte (2,315 m). Then continuing, finally passing a snowfield, to Kalser Tauern (2,515 m), and from there in a long technically difficult downhill into the Dorfertal. Rather flat then from approx. Kalser Tauernhaus and later softly down to Kals am Großglockner.
From Kals into a long climb to the idyllic "Greiwiesen" and then a short downhill to Lucknerhaus with stunning views of the Grossglockner. Then on soft trails through beautiful flower meadows to the roof of the tour and supply station at Glorer Hütte (2,642 m). From there softly downhill and short up to Salmhütte, the Grossglockner always in view.
After passing Salmhütte we continue on fine trails to Stockerscharte (2,465 m) with stunning views of the Pasterze. From the Stockerscharte technically challenging downhill over the dam of the reservoir Margaritze, up passing the Glocknerhaus, at the end over a snowfield to the Untere Pfandlscharte (2,663 m).
With a final look back on the Grossglockner over a snowfield (attention) in a long downhill down to the Trauneralm, from there flat to Ferleiten and then slightly falling on trails to Fusch an der Glocknerstraße. From Fusch into the last climb, then downhill to the finish in the center of Kaprun at Salzburger Platz. We pass 9 glaciers, around 300 peaks with more than 3,000 m.
OTT 80 is a very challenging trail run with mostly high alpine trail running. Not only because of the total climb of the race (5,000 m), 3 passes higher than 2,500 m, but also with regard to long very technical trails. The high average altitude in more than 2/3 of the distance means an additional challenge. Racing experience at comparable distances, preferably in the mountains, sure-footedness as well as experience in alpine terrain are prerequisites for the race. For the character of the race and pre-conditions see below; kindly check as well the required "Obligatory Equipment".
EUR 130 until 30.06.2023

Osttirol Trail (OTT 80) is a challenging trail running competition, leading mostly through difficult alpine territory, one time higher than 2,800 m and 2 times higher than 2,500 resp. 2,600 m. Expect 3 larger snowfields to cross, under bad weather conditions even more. For the largest part the track leads over trails (80 %), which are (partwise very) difficult. Bad weather conditions (low temperatures, rainfall, snow) make the race even harder.
Trails are in average very technical. The hardest parts will be the trails up to and down the high mountain passes: Kalser Tauern (2,515 m), Pfortscharte (2,838 m), Stockerscharte (2,465 m) and Untere Pfandlscharte (2,663 m)
Every participant has to be so physically fit and surefooted that they can manage the chosen trail according to the rules. Experience at longer competitions, in any case combined with experience for moving in high alpine environment are a precondition for the participation in OTT 80. The minimum age for participation is 18 years.
The overall time limit for Osttirol Trail is 23 hours.
