EXTREME RUNNING RACE ALONG THE HIGH MOUNTAIN TRAIL “HUFEISENTOUR" IN THE SARNTALER ALPS
Südtirol Ultra Skyrace
The Südtirol Ultra Skyrace is an extreme running race that extends through mountainous areas in the Sarntaler Alps, on an extremely varied circuit running along the high mountain trail “Hufeisentour”. In a number of sections, the circuit requires sure footing, freedom from dizziness and - above all - excellent psycho-physical condition.
Südtirol Ultra Skyrace: 26 - 28 August 2022
The Ultra Skyrace is the longest and most extreme trail run in South Tyrol. The 121 kilometres long route of the race with an elevation gain of 7500 meters that was first organised in 2013 has always started in Bolzano. Following the shape of a horseshoe, the route runs across Corno del Renon, Forcella di Sarentino, Croce di Lazfons, Forcella Vallaga and Passo di Pennes on to Corno Bianco, and then via Punta Cervina to the Omini di Sasso, the Alp Möltner Kaser and San Genesio back to Bolzano.
The 9th edition of this extreme sports event that will take place from 26 to 28 August 2022, is a little different. For the first time, the finish will not be in the city on the river Talvera but 16 kilometres north in Sarentino. "The participants run the last kilometres from Auener Joch pass in the direction of Alp Möltner Kaser, then on to the Omini di Sasso and via Putzer Kreuz downhill to Sarentino, where they cross the finish line at the Haberle Anger parish fair site. The length of the route will not change very much and will remain more or less the same with 116 kilometres and 7276 metres of elevation gain", Josef Günther Mair, chair of the organising committee of the Südtirol Ultra Skyrace, explained.
