Quitting is not an Option
Do you like to test the limit of your athletic abilities? Are you in your element at the point when most others would quit? If you're surefooted, have a good head for highs and enjoy a bit of climbing for an extra kick, then book your place in the Schlegeis 3000 Skyrace. This competition is ideal for those who are looking to take trail running to the next level.The backdrop to this extreme sporting event is simply spectacular! In the midst of the impressive Zillertal Alps, competitors start the race directly by the dam of the Schlegeis reservoir. Along the 33km trail, runners must not only conquer an incredible 2,380 altitude metres but also several sections of climbing, scree fields and exposed ridges. The route leads to the Pfitscherjoch Hut, then continues over the Schrammachkees and the Riepenkopf to the Olperer Hut, before returning to the reservoir via the Friesenbergscharte and Petersköpfl. The trail has seven check points, which competitors must pass. These check points don't only help with orientation, they also make sure that the race is fair and that no competitor takes a shortcut. Refreshment stands along the route make sure that runners can keep their energy levels topped up until they reach the finish line. They will provide everything necessary to help you keep going until the bitter end- including some motivating words of encouragement!
