Running in East Tyrol - Mountains that move.

The running scene in East Tyrol flourishes and thrives under the patronage of the highest peaks in Austria. The natural mountain world between the Tauern and the Dolomites presents itself as a perfect sports arena. The Grossglockner Ultra Trail leads across all mountains in July - in more than 24 hours around Austria's highest mountain. Endurance and courage are required in this ultra-long distance. Steel muscles need the participants of the toughest team competition in the world, which takes place every year in September in the Lienz Dolomites. 4-man teams face the Red Bull Dolomitenmann, each a mountain runner, mountain bikers, paragliders and canoeists deliver a sensational fight against stone, wind and water. High up is the many mountain races in East Tyrol: the Simonysee mountain run in Prägraten am Großvenediger or the Zuniglauf in Matrei, for example, to name only the classics in the middle of the Hohe Tauern National Park.

Before the start of the summer holiday season, the cross-border Hochpustertal Run events start again in Alta Pusteria. Traditionally, the event begins in Sillian with the RAIFFEISEN KIDS & JUNIOR RUN, a competition for children / pupils / youth (400m / 800m / 1200m), which takes place in the center of Sillian. The start of the HALF MARATHON over 21.1 km and the RAIFFEISEN CLASSIC RUN over 12.1 km then takes place in front of the Josef Resch Haus in Innichen. The destination is in Sillian.
