The Südtirol Ultra Skyrace becomes more and more networked

Bolzano/Sarentino 28 February 2017 - The organizers of the Südtirol Ultra Skyrace place a great emphasis on collaboration, not only within the organising committee but also externally with other trail events. Recently, cooperation agreements were signed with two events, Hochkönig Man and Laives Trail. 

After its premiere last year the Laives Trail will take place for the second time this year. The organisers offer two distances, 51 kilometres (2750 m altitude differential) and the half?marathon distance with an altitude differential of 1500 m. It takes place on 22 April 2017, largely on forestry roads and hiking paths between Laives, Nova Ponente, Aldino and Monte San Pietro.

“This run is the ideal test for our participants to check their own level of preparation. It’s a kind of interim stage towards the personal high point of the season. The trail runners that were at the start last year praised the route and were altogether thrilled with the event. This is a good reason for us to seek collaboration with Alberto Dal Toso and his team”, says Josef Günther Mair, chair of the Organising Committee of the Südtirol Ultra Skyrace, who has also prepared the way for the second partnership with  Hochkönig Man.

This is a trail run in one of the most breathtaking areas of Austria, around the Hochkönig massif and on Steinernes Meer. The Hochkönig Man, which this year is also the Austrian Championship in trail running, starts in just three months, from 2 to 4 June 2017.

Three categories are offered at the Hochkönig Man, a speed trail (23.57 km/1411 m), the marathon trail (46.94/2751) and the endurance trail (84.24/4916). “The male and female winners of the marathon trail and the endurance trail will be invited to the Südtirol Ultra Skyrace 2018; the winners in the Südtirol Skyrace and the Südtirol Ultra Skyrace will have automatic starting rights at the Hochkönig Man”, explains Mair, who is looking forward to a successful and enduring collaboration with both events.
