The ultimate Trail Running Event at the Diamond of the Alps. The Glacier Trail Run in Gurgl leads even higher up in altitude: it runs over technically demanding trails up to 2000 and 3000 meters. At the “Glacier Trail - 62K” distance as much as 61.1 kilometers (and 3600 altitude meters) have to be mastered, with the breathtaking glacier world of upper Ötztal always in view.
