Salomon Zugspitz Ultratrail
In the Salomon Zugspitz Ultratrail and Supertrail, two different routes lead up to 1,000 participants to the peak of what, at 2,962 metres above sea level, is Germany’s highest mountain.
And in Leutasch, people are already looking forward to providing the starting point for the 70 kilometre-long Supertrail, and experiencing scenes in the race. In June 2013, the runners will tackle a 103-kilometre run over a difference in altitude of 6,027 metres in just one day. Supertrail runners will set off from the Weidach area of Leutasch at 9.00 in the morning on the 22nd June, with competitors in the Ultratrail starting from Grainau at 7.00 in the morning. The majority will finish the race in the dark, or even the small hours of the next day, after running for more than 24 hours. At around 71.5 kilometres, the shorter Supertrail also requires that competitors show true fighting spirit, with the last runners only expected to reach the finishing line after 17 hours. The varied route through the Wetterstein mountains, along fantastic trails and against a background of breathtaking scenery, means any effort the long-distance runners make will be worth every moment.
