Trail running-challenges from Small to Hard
Essentially trail running: Four impressive trail running routes lead runners from the start in Ischgl to the finish in Galtür at the 9th Silvrettarun 3000 – a great way to experience nature amidst a spectacular mountain backdrop. The programme features the marathon route (42.195 km and 1,814 m difference in altitude), the variants "Small" (11.2 km and 306 m difference in altitude), "Light" (19.36 km and 873 m difference in altitude) and "Medium" (29.9 km and 1,482 metres difference in altitude). "With the new 'Light' route, we now have four routes of varying challenge and thus something for all runners", Josef Kurz from the Tourism Association Paznaun – Ischgl rejoices over the new route. In 2021, there is a team and group classification in addition to the individual classification once again. The team classification sees one participant competing over each distance, the times are added up and the fastest team wins. New in 2021: This year, the three fastest teams are also rewarded with prize money. The challenge cup for the group classification goes to the biggest group that lines up for the start, regardless of time and routes.
Make way for mini-athletes
On 16 July 2021, young runners from four years of age can gain first-hand racing experience at the Silvretta Kids Run presented by Volksbank Tirol. Awaiting the future trail runners from 17:00 are, depending on age group, the three distances “Mini” (450 metres), “Midi” (1,000 metres) and “Maxi” (2,000 metres) with start and finish in Galtür. And best of all: No matter if slow or fast – everyone who joined in the race will receive a medal and a gift at the victory ceremony. Entry fee for children is seven euros.
Doing good on the run?
At the Silvrettarun 3000 participants run for a good cause.
