Gore-Tex TransAlpine Run
The GORE-TEX TRANSALPINE-RUN, one of the toughest and at the same time most spectacular trailrun events in the world, celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2014.
More than 300 teams start every year in September into one of the last big adventures, the alpine crossing by foot.
Doing that the participants cover every single day marathon distances and demand everything from their bodies to reach the aim as a finisher after seven stages.
Since its first performance in 2005 the run developed rapidly into one of the most significant stage runs worldwide, what is reflected in the top-class starter field as well as the strong media response.
Runners from more than 40 nations provide yearly international atmosphere during the stages.
The GORE-TEX TRANSALPINE-RUN 2016 traverses the Alps in time-tested manner by way of three countries on a North-South trajectory via exhilarating trails. The course has been completely realigned and as of this year leads from Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria (GER) to Brixen, South Tyrol (ITA). The new itinerary has been shortened by a day to fit into a single week. The course sports ever more high-alpine terrain and doesn’t skimp on fresh highlights either: the first glacial traverse in its 12-year history among others.
The GORE-TEX® TRANSALPINE-RUN 2016 packs a distance of 247.2 km and 14,862 m of positive vertical (vs. 14,998 m of cumulative descent) into seven exciting race days.
