Run at the World Mountain and Trail Running Championships in Innsbruck

A great way to see and experience the World Champs routes. Enter the open races and discover for yourself just what the courses will be all about.

Entries are now open for the public races at the WMTRC 2023 in Innsbruck-Stubai, which involve racing over two of the routes that will see the best in the world battle it out for the gold medal. Choose either (or both!) the Krone Race to Höll on June 6, which is 6.6km and involves 313 metres or altitude or how about the Sportler Vertical which will see runners climb from Neustift im Stubai to the Elferhütte on June 7, covering 1,020 metres in altitude?

The races

The Krone Race to Höll, June 6

This starts just before the World Mountain and Trail Running Championships’ opening ceremony and will be a great way to get into the mood of the weekend! You’ll race over the same course which will see the future World Champions competing on, covering 6.6km and 313 metres of altitude on trails that are in close proximity to the city centre. Head to Gramart before descending along a passage nicknamed “hell” - technically very demanding! You’ll then finish in the heart of Innsbruck, ready to attend the WMTRC23 Opening Ceremony, which starts at 6pm.

Save the Date: June 6, 4:30 PM, KRONE Race to Höll (6.6 km, 313 metres in altitude)

The Sportler Vertical, June 7

Would you like to find out whether you have what it takes to participate in the WMTRC title races? Or would you like to know how much faster than you the elite runners are going to be? Or would you just like to make your way to the Elferhütte in order to find the best spot from where to cheer on the mountain running champs on their way to the finishing line?

 Whatever the case may be: On June 7, starting from 11am, anyone interested can participate in an open run leading from Neustift im Stubai via the Elferlift summit station all the way to the Elferhütte, located at 2,004 meters above sea level. Run over 7.3km, the route covers a whopping 1,020 meters in altitude and has all the ingredients to make for a demanding Vertical.

Save the Date: June 7, 11:00 AM, SPORTLER Vertical (7.3 km, 1,020 metres in altitude)
